My Homemade 5×4 Camera

Posted in Zen by yoshizen on March 5, 2021

One of my old friend asked me to make a 5×4 Pinhole camera for him. So that I dug up my 5×4 camera which I made more than 30 years ago using some components from Swiss Siner view camera, on the base rail of the Pentax bellows unit (which has been used for Pentax 6×7 Closeup unit as well = https://yhttps://yoshizen.wordpress.com/2020/02/16/heaviest-gadget-for-6×7/

The design of the camera was the simplest L-arm type which was the easiest to make (but non of the any convenience in use — or say pretty awkward to use) —– yet still, 5×4 is 5×4 = the resulting shot of a Japanese company’s building earned 5 times more money than the cost to make this camera. 😀
