We’ve made some progress on our build of a 20×24″ view camera. We put together the foam-core bellows using a healthy amount of matte gaffer tape, and did a test fit to the front and back standards. We started putting together the PVC pipe extension rail system, and we’ve got a whole host of small issues that will need addressing as the camera progresses. Excited about the prospect of having a working view camera, we attached the Fujinon-C 600mm lens to a piece of foam-core using the remaining gaffer tape, and made a makeshift ground glass from six sheets of tracing paper taped together, and had ourselves a proof-of-concept working 20×24 view camera! Some shots below (please excuse the focus/exposure of these snapshots!);
