The test rolls were fairly entertaining but I think I need to rebuild the body and this shot is just to show that it wasn’t a complete disaster. It’s a gxwide (I had to name it so that it could have a blog category) and will take some getting used to so I think constructing a viewfinder is probably a good idea. See the previous post for a picture of the camera.
I haven’t posted a “gear in pieces” picture for awhile so here’s the next best thing; the first version of an extremely wide angle medium format (6x12cm) camera I’m building. It’s mostly bits bought on ebay with a couple of pieces of plywood in the middle, all held together with lots of tape. It’s missing some niceties and hopefully the final version will have less tape. I’ve put a couple of test rolls through – results to follow assuming there’s something on the film.
