PROJECT STATUS 10-04-2011
I started on this project in early 2009 and as I write this the projects has been on the shelf for more than a year. Due to all kinds of things happening around me I´ve not managed to stay motivated to work on it. But I haven´t given up and plan to see it finished. I still consider myself being in the green as my previous project (Fatman project) took me a little over three years to finish :)
I´ve recieved alot of encouraging mails from people being really enthusiastic about this project and I´d hate to make you disapointed, and also myself. As I´m pretty close to wrapping it up I´m really going to try and do so in the near future.
The two major parts left to build before I can start testing the thing is a proper bellow and a base mount to allow focusing. I´ve decided to scrap my initial plans on adding tilt and shift features to the camera and go for a simple and straight focusing mechanism. The reason for this is that making a rig that allow tilting and shifting will become to complicated with regard to my currently available time, space and materials. But no worries, I´ll add that to my next camera :)
