 (In progress) I built this camera with slight modifications to Jon Grepstad’s plans in the winter of 2011/12.

The vast majority of the materials were left over from previous projects. I did go up to a larger size set of screws from my previous camera. That is from 10/32 to 1/4-20

On this one I did try to keep the dimensions down to reduce both bulk and weight, but at the same time I did what I could to keep it ridged and robust.

Keith at Custom Bellows (co.uk) helped me out with the bellows on this one.
