johnbentcope Community Developed Modules and/or a 6x17 film back Posted at 5:20pm, Dec 30, 2015
Has anybody in the community contributed to the project? Are community contributions welcome? I am a big fan of the format of the Linhof 617, and have been interested in building a homemade clone of it for some time. That's what originally drew me to the Focal Camera project. With the wide format of the film, it'll require some more planned-out optical elements to span the light across the full 17 centimeters, so I'm looking into that now with a local camera repairman. I'm wondering if information to the community about the design of the cameras is limited to what we can reverse engineer from the cut files. Thanks for kicking off a great project Mathijs!
