Today is, potentially, the end of our journey. We'll just tie up the loose ends, and hopefully we'll have a test photo or two by the end of the day!
Joining the Body and Front Standard
First, we glue the inner and outer bellows to the body. A few frayed threads around the edges are okay. Then we apply glue to the loose ends of the bellows, and insert the front standard. . .
We apply clamping force until the glue has cured, and we get this! Nearly finished.
A top view of the bellows, at about 10mm draw.
And from the side, at about 35mm draw. The travel of the front standard is really limited by the bellows, or how far you want to push it. It will reach full extension without complaining, though.
Here's the fully assembled roll film adapter, complete with a 6x9 Graflex back.
And mounted on Duo, in portrait and landscape orientations. The darkslide protrudes a little in the horizontal position.
Here's a Polaroid 600SE back mounted on duo, again in portrait and (considerably less sexy) landscape.
That's that - we're done! I did a test shot on FP100C, which turned out fantastic - no light leaks (although it's a very cloudy day) and the focus was spot on. It's not dry enough to scan yet, though.
