    FS 4x5 camera, lens, and 2 paper holders included

    FS: 1 camera ( 4x5 )

    DIMENSIONS
    8x8x10"

    OPTICS
    6.8" ( 1746mm ) f 2.7 lens ( plano convex ) in barrel


    DESCRIPTION

    this camera is a simple construction of my own design.
    they has a focus screen.
    1 waterhouse stops is included.
    2 book style single sheet paper holders.

    this camera is NOT a fixed focused camera .
    this camera does not include a shutter.


    why am i making these box cameras ?

    to make a long story short, i love box cameras and i love experimenting.

    with the box cameras i have made ( this is the 8th )
    i use paper negatives. not short exposures, but long ones.
    in the past the cameras i have made did not have paper holders. i have
    included 2 book-style paper holders, so shorter exposures will be possible,
    which will allow you to develop your paper negative in a conventional fashion.


    4x5 camera, 2 holders and lens $100.00

    paypal only ..
    I never ask for "gift" option, please split paypal fees.


    custom camera sizes are made upon request.

    attached photographs ...

    Hey, John!

    I picked up my 11x14 kit from the post office tonight, and my daughter and I assembled it together. We pointed it at the TV and I got her to adjust the view screen about halfway (so lots of extension for macro work) and we watched Red Green turn a 4 dr sedan into a firetruck!

    So it all went together quick and it works like a charm!

    We'll be making exposures and hopefully have something interesting to post by the weekend.

    Thanks!

    I put my second exposure, and first chem-less negative up in the gallery, John.

    I'll attach it here for non-subscribers...

    This is a three-day exposure. It's my neighbour's front yard, and what looks suspiciously like a panda bear. Cool, eh?
