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.
