  3. Re: Korona 12x20 compatibility with Lotus or Chamonix Film Holders?

    I'll say it since everyone seems to be dancing around it: Richard Ritter makes films holders for ULF cameras. I have several and they're great.

  4. Re: Depth to Septem on YOUR 14X17" film holders

    14x17 holders should not vary. There is an ANSi standard for them and that is a familiar size in the medical community.Of course, "should" is the operative word...

    Re: Process lenses

    Nope, no mis-type. It was a Kodak Wide Field Copy lens 18" and f16 max aperture. Adam at SK Grimes mounted in a copal 3. The 10" wide field Ektar is f6.3 and in an Ilex 5.
