    Great design. Really like it. Film holders design-excellent. Any problems with holders light leaks? What material were used for darkslide?
    I just found source of x-ray films, but still have no time to build suitable camera

    Hi Cesarioo. If you look at the picture, there are two light leaks on the right side up and down... but it can easily be fix I think. I use 1mm cardboard for the darkslide, but it's not the best material, because sometimes it bends and it's tricky to close. I suggest to use a more rigid material.

    Hi Tony,
    maybe you should spray some clear varnish to make cardboard darkslide more sturdy, especially at the edges. I made my darkslides from 0,8mm plywood triple coated with black acrylic painting (but it's lots of work and you need to order this plywood from some of e-stores for air plane model makers

    Quite a project, and I love those film holders. I've also got some x-ray film and might steal an idea or two and go big instead of cutting it all down.

    Cheers -

    That' sa great looking camera.

    "it only has a fixed aperture"

    you could always make some 'waterhouse stops' out of thin metal or card
