A Wooden 4x5 View Camera


My obsession to achieve razor sharp black and white images with grainless tones finally got to me and I decided to get myself a 4x5 view camera. Browsing the web for new and used view cameras made me realize I was soon to part with a considerable amount of money. In search for a cheaper alternative, I considered for a long time the Bender view camera kit, and I almost ended up ordering one. But then I stumbled on Jon Grepstad's pages about constructing your own view camera and I was hooked.
