E34 – Lucus Landers

The discussion starts off with a question about the features you would want on a single camera you might have on the desert island with a camera-supplies mini-mart.

This episode’s guest is Lucus Landers, a Brooklyn-based photographer and camera-maker. We learn about how gaffer’s tape bellows on a home-built 4X5 stem from growing up in the great state of Oklahoma. The gaffer’s tape is a recurring theme…

George Daniels writes books about watchmaking that helped Lucus understand the building of gears for a film transport mechanism:

Gear profiles are discussed (cycloidal gear profile and involute gear profile) as Graham’s brain starts to enter a state of bafflement.

Build quality vs. engineering quality is highlighted.

Lucus’s next project is revealed late in the show.
