Open Source 5x4 Camera Project
This is the final structure for the 3D Printed Front Standard (rotate 90 degrees) and some details for the laser cutting of what will be the lens board holder that slots between the two tall bits of the front standard
Bit of info about this project in my previous post here
So wheels are in motion for a half laser cut half 3D printed 5x4 camera, Idea I have had for a while and it seems to be shaping up quite nicely might even call for its own separate blog.
Idea basically consists of a source file containing Blue prints for the laser cut wood components (ply) and the .STL files for the 3D printed components that all come together to form a 5x4” camera Hopefully I will assemble the Beta camera in the coming months.
The project is open source, I will eventually stick the CAD files on the internet and people can modify them, submit the new camera designs and hopefully create a small community of camera builders. Most universities have laser cutters and 3D printers so this could bring a whole new generation of 5x4 cameras into peoples hands, who knows? im sure I cant be the only product design student who likes LF?
If anyone has any thoughts on this idea please get in touch, input from any photographers, product designers or just creative types would be great!
More results from experimenting with 8x10 colour papere negatives and using the RA4 Reversal Process, seem to be getting there with the filters but the paper came out really mottled (this might be due to using my bathroom as a makeshift dark room and it not being 100% dark)
Filters were Cibachrome 120Y90M
Rated the paper at ISO 6
It was sunny today but not that sunny! Either way think I may have over done it this paper is defiantly not ISO 2 will try again tomorrow at 10 and 15
This shot was taken yesterday continuing my mucking about with the RA4 Reversal Process, i pulled the dark slide out a little bit more each time to see how different exposures effected a filter combo that I liked. I would say im happy with the middle strip, you cant see it in this shitty scan but there are greens in there! finally GREEN! also seems to be infrared trees? anyone got any ideas about that?
