I have been reading in this forum for a long time now. Time to show something. I am building a portrait camera around a Leitz Hektor 200/2.5 projector lens. The shutter box is a Speed Graflex of smaller format that i bought without ground glass, stuck shutter and rotten bellows very cheap. I serviced the shutter. The bellows and the international back come from Sinar. I still have to construct a bed and focusing mechanism and do some painting :-) But it will be cool. Due to the fast lens the ground glass is as bright as my led-tv. It is easy to switch the Back from horizontal to vertikal and with 36cm of bellows draw you can shoot very tight. The dof will be extremely shallow. I think, this ugly guy will produce a really special look.

regards,
Wasti
