    Big as it is, when mounted, it will be something like this This is a giant cone lens, just right for 24x32 wetplate portrait. For the Voigtlander 9 petzval, the image circle will just be about 2" larger than this giant cone. The lens board is 12" square carbon fiber. With a special lens support, it will work, but the stand needs to be fortified because the No. 9 weighs about 15 more pounds and 6" longer. Over the years I have asked Chamonix to make 4 of this size cameras. I still have an extra one if anyone is interested I use one myself.

    Suddenly I'm appreciating the ergonomics of Petzval's old Orthoscop. This 1859-ish Voigtlander Orthoscop with a 36-inch focal length and image circle fits comfortably on a 9x9-inch lens board.

    I like making Lewis cameras.....I might make a huge Lewis style camera for this lens. Here's a 6th plate relievo ambrotype of my halfplate Lewis camera that is my workhorse.

    Neat. If you decide what types of photography you mostly want to do, you can get by without even having bellows. Just have fixed focus at one distance, and always shoot there. Move the subject in and out until they are in perfect focus.
