Building the CrystalChrome Camera and the CrystalChrome Viewing Screen, 1985

Roger de Montebello, Diagram showing the parts that make up the CrystalChrome Camera and the CrystalChrome Viewing Screen, 1984; Photostat with notations in pencil and ink; 16 x 23 inches

The top of this drawing shows the assembly process for the camera. The bottom third of the drawing shows the process to create the viewing screen mold followed by the assembly process for the viewing screen itself.

 

Under pressure to complete a working model of the CrystalChrome Camera before the end of 1985, de Montebello simplified the process first in January and then more radically in March.
