I love things like this. This guy is going all out! I had considered at one time building a large format camera, but the plans were to accept a standard lens board and 4x5 film holder. This guy is doing it all from scratch - very noble.

These things are great. I've been looking for a way to do some geared tracks for a project that I have in mind;who would have thought to look at Lego parts?

If you are interested in home built cameras, take a look at this thread on the APUG site:
Pix of your home-built cams here please - APUG

Some of these cameras are incredible and real works of art.
