    You used to be able to buy original shipping cartons for Imacon scanners as an accessory item. Might be worth looking at if sending overseas.

    Re: v11 deardorff or chamoix 16x20 camera?

    If you enjoy the Deardorff "feel" I echo the sentiment that it is a nice idea to "upsize" from a V8 to a V11. That said I have found that my V11 is really too big and heavy for the kind of things...
