That is the question. I have been pondering large format images but realize I have zero interest in working with sheet film. So the next best thing is a large format camera with a roll-film back. And since all that works out to is a bellows with ground glass at one end and a lens board at the other, how hard is it to build one?
Probably harder than I imagine, though there are lots of plans. The bellows is the tricky part, I think. The instructions seem a tad vague and hand-wavey and you’d think that photographs taken by photography enthusiasts of photography equipment or technique would be, you know, better. Should kvetch until I do it myself, I suppose.
I expect I’ll document the complete folder -> pinhole camera transformation soon. I’m about done, once I get the cable release affixed.
