    The ground glass is actually not a "ground glass", it is made with soft translucent plastic, already frosted in one side

    And finally a picture taken with this camera on photo paper with the lens wide open (it only has a fixed aperture), but I've made some aperture with cardboard too. It is fairly wide !

    That's a beautiful camera, Tony. I might steal some ideas for a new 8x10 camera I am building.

    Tony, this is a great camera design concept and an excellent first result taken with it. The film holders look beautiful.
