For the last month I’ve been moving my office into my home. Remodeling a bathroom and building a custom version of the Cambo Ultima 35 from an Ultima 4×5 (seen below with M8 and Visoflex III; also able to mount R8/DMR, and 5D with a simple Really Right Stuff quick release). Since going digital I’ve missed the precision of the view camera camera movements to control framing, focus, etc. Now I have achieved the ultimate optical bench. Sweet.
