Thanks for the compliment.

It weighs a little over 5lbs. So it really isn't that heavy. I will be looking to attach a tripod socket soon.

The nice thing is that it takes standard holders. So it isn't a "one shot" pinhole where you have to insert the paper/film, take the picture, then unload it.

The hardest part of making it was calculating the shrinkage of the clay. Clay can shrink from anywhere from 5-15% after bisquing, so you have to watch the measurements and be willing to take a dremel to the sides a bit (better to be too small...)
