Thread: New camera

    New camera

    My version of Longbow3's double sided camera.
    http://f295.f295.org/uploads/Blah.pl?b-cm/m-1150694286/


    58mm FL - f/170 on one end and 140mm - f266 on the other. Body is Oregon Myrtle,
    wormholes filled with crushed gemstones, turquoise and lapis set in clear epoxy. Hardware is solid copper (hard to cut threads in).

    Test shots this weekend while we're on vacation in central Oregon.

    Excellent craftmanship (as usual) and your latch mechanism is wonderful. We'll look forward to the photos from your vacation.

    It has been a while since I built a camera.......if the shop wasn't 100 f, and the humidty 75%...........I may have to suffer for my craft!

    She's a beauty Eric. Have fun on vacation.

    Thanks everybody. I've been working on this one for months. We'll see how it performs in the field,
    I'm taking the old standby cameras too....just in case.

    I'm taking a roll of Efke IR820 with me, I just got my R72 filter. Luckily the camera I plan to use for that has the same f stop as Daryl's, so I can use his exposure times and 'maybe' get a useable shot. ;D

    Billc: Exactly what do you want a shot of? Just the camera open? or the latch?
