This past week I was fortunate enough to find an 8x10 Deardorff in excellent con d. The camera only has a 4x5 back, and there are no lines on the ground glass in dicating framing (sorry, I am brand new to large format so this may sound silly) ... I would normally assume that the entire piece of glass would show you the ar ea you have framed - such is the case with my Rollei TLR. But the corners are cu t off of the ground glass making exact framing impossible. By the way, I purchas ed a 12" Kodak Commercial Ektar with the camera. I believe 12" = 300mm?? Any hel p here would of course be much appreciated.
Thanks, Mark Minard
