    Homemade SLR camera

    One of the blogs I read reported on this today, not sure if it's been brought up here before. Looks very nice!

    Simply... un... believable...

    This guy needs to hook up with 'Photo Researcher' who has a similar no-holds-barred can-do attitude. Homemade 35mm cameras loaded with homemade Kodachrome film.

    What an object lesson for all of the naysayers around here that would be...

    Wow!

    Thanks for sharing that link.

    Wow, that was really excellent. I rarely follow these, but Denis did an excellent job from top to bottom. Very impressive, indeed.

    This guy is good. He's a first rate machinist and a lot more. Mechanical talent like that is getting rare these days! This has shades of the early Japanese camera industry, when many cameras were hand built by brilliant young Japanese engineers working in adverse circumstances!
