The camera at the left was made from three bodies of Pentax K1000 and fitted with a 65mm f/8 Super Angulon on a focusing mount which yields a 24cm x 4.5 inch original that could be printed in a 4x5 enlarger. The design and fabrication of this camera predates the Hasselblad Xpan. It took Mr. Fletcher a good amount of work to uncouple the clutch mechanism from the rewind mechanism of the K1000.
The bigger camera at the right is based on a 6x17 torpedo back with the front of 2x3 anniversary speed graphic that was fitted with a 90mm f/5.6 Schneider Super Angulon. It used a grip from a Linhof Technika three and a masked finder from a 25mm Canon rangefinder lens.
I thank Mr. Fletcher for allowing me to use this picture and for providing the details of construction of these two cameras.
