    Hand made Pano 6x17

    I just posted some pix of my new Pano 6x17 camera if anyone is interested.

    * When the film you put in the camera is worth more than the camera you put the film in... *
    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    Nice. Fixed focus? Looks like someone had a special on allen screws

    Do you have example images from it?

    I have run several rolls through, but I am now in the process of building (modifying) an enlarger to be able to print 17cm long negs. The focus is fixed and at f22 everything from 11ft to infinity is in focus.

    My last camera used about 100 cap head 4-40 screws and this one has about 150. I broke 3 taps building this camera...LOL

    What does the inside look like?
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    Love the look of it. Must be rock solid.

    Looks good. I was going to make mine fixed at hyperfocal distance (and I wish I had). Instead, I modified an Olympus 50mm lens to be a focusing helical (link below).

    Wow-ee! The Harley Davidson of home-built panos!
    Looks with attitude. Love it from the first Allen screw to the last!

    What does it weigh, and where do the camera strap (or handles?) attach?

    I would also be interested in photos of the inside.
