    That makes sense. I never thought of elastic-induced distortion. Instead of using rubber bands directly on my holders, I completely enclosed the back of my camera and slid the holders through a slot. I know the open back concept works, as in your camera and the Zero Image 4x5s, but I was thinking "multi-task" and wanted a box I could store a box or two of film in when I'm not shooting. Mine works for both purposes but is not nearly as good looking as your setup.

    Ansel Adams had the Zone System... I'm working on the points system. First I points it here, and then I points it there...

    This one I'm sure is more of a "one off" than a "prototype." Next 'One off" will have some design changes. BB

    Bill, I am envious of your skills. It looks professionally made. My cameras all look like the result of long fights. We should get together and compare notes. Next time I head south for the beach, I'll let you know. Judy in Wichita Falls.

    Oh, I think it has more to do with having an instructor with high expectations of his students and knowing they will come through. It was a fun project using new skills. It is also fun to use. If you are going to be in Corpus, let me know and bring your camera.

    I just want to bump this a little bit and say I'm looking forward to seeing more 8x10 pinhole photos too. They are inspirational and I'll bet those negatives are gorgeous.
