Large format, this time for real

Full-frame? Fooey! To misquote Crocodile Dundee, that’s not a large format. This is a large format:

There were some kids who built their own 8x10 motion picture camera awhile back. I never heard what happened to the feature they shot with it

This seems like a very misguided idea.

However... the guy who took an 8.5x11 flatbed scanner and put it onto the
back of an Ansco view camera had a pretty good idea. Forget making 25 fps.
You'll be lucky to get one frame in 25 seconds. But it looks great as long
as nothing moves!

A guy here in Argentina built a couple of LF cameras with a special groundglass to avoid the texture and light falloff of normal view cameras. 
He built a 20x20 inches, a 14x14 inches and I think he is working on a smaller 4x5 for handheld shooting. He uses an A7sII behind de GG. 
Here some info and the results of his tests:
