    Thats what I remember them going for when I had an 11x14 B&J. Have they dropped in price?
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.
    I'm not OCD. I'm CDO which is alphabetically correct.

    No - they're more than that now from what I've seen. Closer to $300 each. And new ones? $400-$600 a pop.

    I don't really care for the 4x5, 8x10, 16x20 formats. Maybe it is some subtle aspect ratio thing that makes me feel that way. My preference has always been 11x14 but I also have grown to like the other formats of 5x7, whole-plate, and 14x17. Anything but that 4:5.

    I would suggest you base your purchase on which format you prefer rather than cost. You already have a reason for doing something other than 8x10. And regardless of initial cost, you will probably be able to sell the equipment at a later date for close to what you paid for it (or more).

    I assume you have a darkroom. Consider making your Cambo into a horizontal 8 x 10 enlarger. I did that with my old Kodak 2D and it works great. It sits on a table type of track that sits on top of the darkroom counter and projects onto the wall. If you can find a cold light head, the rest is pretty easy if you have a basic work shop. If you're interested, I can try to find some photos I took of the whole assembly.
