I don't think you can go further than 44mm in length on this Balda camera.

Transport is guessing but it does produce pretty panoramic shots, even exposed past the sprocket holes of the film.


Can't see me pull off a trick like this with a Zorki-6 and Compur shutter, but tomorrow I will load up the Box Tengor methinks...
t's interesting. can be panoramic shots, but with a long focal. There is a medium-format cameras that have the tools to narrow your film set. YASHICA 635 TLR, for example.

Thank you. Then it is not necessary to lengthen the film gate. That's not enough.

this is so cool. Must have been a very satisfying project and the images are great. What did you make the hand grip out of? or is it part of an ISSF pistol?

For the manufacture of pens I have used this two-component epoxy adhesive.
Torque Epoksilin - new two component epoxy composition 1 based on epoxy resins. It is used for bonding, sealing, repair and recovery of products from different materials, all kinds of metal, wood, ceramics, glass, fiberglass, plastic, brick, tile, marble, cement and other materials. Epoksilin ideal moment to restore the missing pieces to fill dents, chips, cracks, suitable for the restoration of all types of building materials, including natural and artificial stone and concrete. After curing the adhesive joint can be polished, drilled, painted.

Oh! this is a good assessment of my work. I'd love to start to produce a camera on demand, but there is an underlying problem is the central gate. Need a size 0 # Compur shutter, efficient and Rapid.


If you count all those who wrote to me, that would buy this camera, you already have 6 people. I'll be thinking about the production.
* If anyone knows where to buy the central closures Kompur Rapid №0 , please write to me.

Serg, just found this old thread and I'm blown away by what you were able to accomplish! And progress on the build? Would love to get this mod done to my spare zorki 6, its well beyond my abilities though. I would happily pay to get the mod done, its just too cool!

Great job. So, you've removed most of the film gate. As initially the gate ws assymetric you have to reposition the lens mount (shift towards the right ) when looking from the back of the camera I guess. Did you have to cut a hole or some metal at the front of the camera as well to reposition the lens mount?

Thanks
