    Modular 6x9 Camera

    A separate one for each board. I did consider ways to mount one inside the front section, behind the pinhole, but decided against because of the likelihood that the pinhole won't always be in the...

    Modular 6x9 Camera

    The one you see in the pictures was one of a pair for which I paid €40. Another one I have, in virtually unused condition, cost a bit more. They were intended for European quarter-plate cameras of...

    Modular 6x9 Camera

    Trees
