How did you make a 35 mm camera of the red one ? Holding a full film or just some inches ?
Where to find more details over the red one ?

Here it is. Please note the extremely high tech vulcanized rubber shutter retractor. The arrow shaft film winder and rewinder. The liberal usage of black, photon eliminator, adhesive ribbon. It uses a full film cartridge and is manually wound. Approximately two turns for one exposure. Each exposure is about 60MM x film width. It is my idea to eventually use two rolls of film side by side for a double wide exposure. It can be easily converted to use 120/220 film and maybe just about any film that I can make fit. AS SOON AS I FIGURE OUT WHERE THE HECK THE LEAK IS! I think that I found it again.

beautiful camera adaptation, lb3! it is great to see the sinuous, well-crafted shutter blade attached to the recycled box.
perhaps the light leak is cosmic retribution for patronizing walmart! even in an age where corporations make war on humanity, walmart stands out. but it is ok, just have the camera exorcised, and promise not to run wmart film through it again :'(
ps- what is the archer going to do when he reaches into the quiver and withdraws a 12" arrow?

Nice camera! The light leaks don't bother me... I like the subjects you've chosen. Thanks for the camera details... your arrow shaft film winder idea is cool.
