    An acquaintance of mine that lives in Winnipeg has built a custom bellows mount for a Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm f2.5 lens. He mounted his GH2 on the other end: Building the Bomber Cam with 3D printing and scraps.

    He has details of how he built the camera box and mount and a lot of sample images. Pretty cool project.

    Thanks for sharing his website. I toyed for years about picking up and Aero Ektar when I was doing large format. Do you share his "Secret Handshake" too?

    3-D printers are coming down in price so we may all need to learn CAD to design our own mounts.
