    another option is to make a time machine and set it to go back about 160 years, they were all the rage then :-)

    Wow, thank you for all your help With the advice and links.

    I'll work on the time machine first I think, Ted

    I managed to pickup a Charles Beseler 26" E.F series iii lens. I'm hoping it's a good buy as I've gone at it blind as I couldn't find anything on google other than info on a 14" and 18" lens. How will I find out what focal length, aperture and the size of camera to use with it. I can't seem to find any lists or information to work it out.
    I'm hoping to build a camera for mainly shoulder length portraits.

    Edit. Had a little time to watch the youtube link. What can I say other than 1st class skills. A very talented man he Is.
