- I have no clue how many pieces are in this camera
- It’s dimensions are roughly 7?x6.5?x7?
- The main parts are a Main box, internal box, film holder/ground glass slot, lens board, lens.
- The lens is a 127mm ƒ4.7 I got on ebay for ~40 dollars
- The lensboard is two Plates deep and fits perfectly in the slot I built for it (though, I cut it down to one plate in the center to actually mount the lens).
- Focus is achieved by sliding the internal box forward and backward.
The focus range is limited to roughly 3 feet to about 18 inches. It’s good for portrait, but certainly can’t focus to infinity. Mark II (once I get to that) should have a way better focusing range. I’m planning on making a pinhole lens board too.
The ground glass is just plexi, sanded with various fine grits. It’s held in place by a film holder that previously had light leaks, but now has the aluminum center cut out. The fit is tight and I ran a line of liquid nails too, just in case.
Yes, but does it take good pictures? You betcha. Here are some shots of the Legotron Mark I and the pics Norton snapped with it:
