Folks, here's a new camera I just finished. Its made of brass, uses paper negs in 2x2 inch format. It holds the paper negatives taped to sheet brass film holders. These sheets are pressed together in a stack using a spring-loaded pusher plate. The camera is accessed using a removable lid on the side of the camera. A changing bag is needed out in the field to open the lid, remove the front plate, place it to the back of the stack and reclose the lid.

Self-adhesive black felt lines the inside surfaces of the camera. The front shutter is activated by an acorn-nut attached to thin piano wire. Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/pushplatecamtriptych_copy_673.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/pushplatecamtriptych_copy_673.jpg)

One of the better B&W shots, anyway a lot better then most of the stuff on the B&W upload site. Very sharp and good contrast. Congratulations,
