    Big Bertha's new john says Hello!

    Hi gang!

    Some of you know me as Discpad from over at Graflex dot Org... I refurbish Speed & Crown Graphics (I have seven of them), turning the Speeds into the David Burnett Combo.

    Earllier this week, I put a deposit on a Big Bertha with a 40 inch f/8 lens. Since Bertha is a woman, and I have to pump some money into her for a boob job, err a new pair of bellows... Does that make me a john?

    Cheers!

    David tells me he gets 0.0004% of every one of your conversions. True? Grin.

    Congratulations on the Big Bertha. I'm working on putting a 24" on my Graflex. It will be a two tripod rig.

    Hey Dan, we talked at P.net on a couple occasions. You'll fit in here real fine.

    Welcome. And I'm jealous of the BB. I've toyed with getting one, but living in Hoboken 5th floor walk-up and without a car kind of negates the thrill.

    The hard part of getting a Big Bertha is finding one: Lens & Repro won't rent theirs out; and Jeff Hirsch has seven of them, including the one in his window at Fotocare.

    These are even more rare than Circut panorama cameras.

    Thanks!

    And Yes, she probably weighs more than your 12x20... She crosses the scales at about 70 pounds.

    She doesn't look like the other Big Berthas I've seen. She looks a bit more kit-bashed. not that I'm still not jealous . . .
