DIY Camera Uses Xray Sheets For Film

If you’re one of those guys who can appreciate both vintage cameras and DIY projects, your jaw may drop permanently when you see this project.

Darren Samuelson, who is building a big camera, is actually building a HUGE camera. A retro style bellows camera.

The camera has a back panel of 14×36″, which is so big that it uses X-ray sheets as film.

Construction took about 6 months of work and technical issues ranged from finding film, through building a “medical grade” X-ray table, to supporting the huge bellows.
