This is a follow up to my previous 5x7 build (found here ( )).
Again, it's a non-folding/wide-angle design to primarily fit the very beefy Super-Angulon 165 f8. It can also acomodate a 210mm lens focused to about 5 feet. I improved many things, mainly the lever driven spring back, added front-shift and front-tilt movements and (hopefully) refined the design. The bellow frames are held in place with neodymium magnets, as is the rotating back.
All wooden parts are made from Bubinga, (almost) all metal is 6061 aluminum, the black rods/tubes are carbon fiber, the ground glass is hand-ground and laser scored 1/8" acrylic, the back leaf-springs are cut from phosphor bronze and the bellows are made out of the Thorlabs BK5 fabric.

Thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.

Columbus, Ohio
- based photographer Mat Marrash has been working in large format photography for the past six years — a span longer than pretty much any other hobby that’s emerged in his life. He has also spent a lot of time thinking about why photography has had such a big impact on him.
He shares those musings with us in this 2.5-minute video by Rooted Content.

“Large format is the type of hobby that pulls you in and takes you down the rabbit hole,” writes the studio. You can view examples of Marrash’s work over on his website and Flickr...
