This Big Ass DIY Camera Takes Pictures On 3 Foot Long Film
It’s definitely an impressive piece of work, that required a lot of audibles, tweaking and patience. Samuelson started the project because he wanted to take pictures larger than 8×10 without going digital. The camera is using X-Ray film which is apparently much cheaper than regular film.
After a few trial and errors, it looks like Samuelson has found his groove and the pictures are starting to look great. Check out his Great Big Camera here. [Darren’s Great Big Camera via MAKE]
I love how much work it takes to shoot a picture
He’s getting there..
One of his first pictures that suffered from developing tank scratches to light leaks to spotting and so forth.
