Is anyone doing anything with graphic arts cameras??
I was given an 18x24 process camera, & I'm thinking about setting it up for stillife shooting, or......perhaps, for big landscapes, mounting it in the back of a van!!

What do you have for a lens and holder?
You can pick up some 16x20 Arista Ortho Litho Film for about 2 bucks a sheet, or some 12x18 and/orr 11x14 for less. Might be fun to play with!

It came with a 16 1/2" red dot Artar!! with an electric Packard shutter.
It has a hinged vacuum back.
The bed is 10' long...Yeah it's big.
before I can use it, I need to build it into a wall.

It came from a small town newspaper, gone digital.

With that lens, it sounds like you couldo take 5 to 7 feet off the length to make it "portable"! The lens probably won't cover 16x20 unless you do some tight macro work, but some still lifes would be fun.
