This time a Glunz...

Postby 3rdTrick » Sun 28 July 2013 / 03:46 am

One more Polaroid conversion:

This is a Glunz of Hanover 9x12 plate camera. The back was almost the same size as Polaroid so... I was not sure how it would turn out but it actually is quite nice. The Meyer Gorlitz 135 lens has nice color and contrast on the Fuji film and even gets the "Glow" in the pictures.

It is also very compact when folded. I bet this was an awesome camera in 1929.

I will post the pics when I get them scanned.

Excellent work :super: !

I wondered recently if this could be done.
You answered me :D.

How did you stick (or whatever) the back on the camera ?

Amazing job Pete! Look forward to seeing the scans of the photos! The camera has an art deco look to it.

Thank you all for the comments.

There was no room between the bellows and the sides for screws so I just used JB Weld. I also had to re-glue the bellows and used Gorilla Glue for that. It worked but it runs before it completely dries and left me with a lot of cleanup. I trimmed the back of the camera so the film plane lined up and I did not need to worry about the infinity stops. I am thinking next time if I had a 9x12 film holder, I could make a back that slides in and out of any 9x12 camera.
