    Nothing will ever match the scene where Mongo lit his cigar by bending over into the fire and straightened up again, with both the cigar lit ... and his hat on fire!!

    OK, now that the Franken-ARCA has made it's public debut at the conference in Rockford, here's some pics of the completed camera:


    The camera with a 600mm Fujinon C focused at about 100ft. I have enough rail and bellows for about 6½" - 7" more extension.


    The front and rear standards compressed onto a short 15cm rail section. Even with a lens mounted (240mm Computar) the thickness of the camera is about 5" (with the little rail section sticking out by about an inch).


    The camera with a 305mm G Claron focused at about 20ft.

    That is one sweet camera! Looks like it has a bail? Really nice job Kerry.

    Looks fantastic Kerry! That Sinar 7x17" conversion is looking more and more tempting...

    Kerry,
    If you have time could you post a note mentioning where you sourced parts (not the rail, function carrier etc, but the "franken" parts) for your camera. As an example, was the little dovetail that allows the rear standard to mount the function carrier salvaged, obtained from ARCA, or purpose mfg'ed? I wanted to say "it certainly looks very factory" but having seen all those cinematic iterations of the mad doctor's lab I not sure that you would take it as a compliment!

    Kerry,

    What did the weight finally arrive at?

    Also what moves are on the back...I can't tell from the photo.

    The compactness of the camera in closed position is very impressive

    Is the bellows support an Arca accessory?

    Wow, that is VERY impressive to me. I would love to feed that baby sheet after sheet of film. Do you plan to make more?

    Dave,

    The bail is courtesy of Richard Ritter. I made the rear frame (both metal and wood - the part with the finger joints on the corners), but Richard made the back. A man needs to know his limits.

    Celac,

    The dovetail plate was purpose manufacturered. The other metal pieces are made by a company called 8020 Inc. Their web site is www.8020.net.
