    this is a picture of my homemade (more or less) 4x5 camera with a bausch and lomb 130mm more or less lens. The lens is from a 2c camera by kodak. The len's return spring is broken which means it is the only every ready lens I have that has to be cocked.

    I shot a picture this morning and a soon as the negative dries I will post it here.

    I have plenty more cameras to go so remember when you get sick of them it was your own idea.

    quote from james "Charlie, I also want to see the new camera. However, I think you oughtta take pictures of each one of your cameras, and put them on here. And... you should take these pictures with your cameras. :mrgreen: Show us what we're missing out on!"

    And You terri agreed. Now you gotta live with it.

    I also started working a new one. What do you think of a 46mm film view camera. Im toying with the idea. I am working with a broken 'roid so i pulled the strut out and have a chopped down lens board hanging from the end of the bellows. I'm going to have to do something with it and I never owned view camera with all the swings and tilts. No idea what I will do with one but at the minimum a new toy.

    [​IMG]Okay this is a stripped and chopped poloroid 330 camera. It is all plastic so it is a sacrificial since I have never done this before.

    This is the basic building block of my camera builds. This one I have decided will become a mini view camera but 2x3 not 46mm as I had planned. It will have swing and tilt to make perspective corrections. At least as much as I can figure out. First I have to build it then go in search of a lens for it.

    It has no back and no lens at this point also no strut and focus system. Should be interesting.
