    Re: 11x14 Maco 820c Aura IR film

    I'm sorry to say that I don't have a freezer large enough (and never have) for my LF film, much less this film. Randy, yes, but I'm in the St. Louis metro area a bit far from you.

    Re: Lens shade or just using the hand

    I have done both. It depends on what else I might need my hand for (holding an umbrella to block the wind comes to mind). I have also used the lens shade to keep snow off of my lens while shooting.
  8. Re: Whole Plate film holders: expensive, nonstandard, and...available?

    I bought a WP camera a while back and it came with 5 holders. I was able to get Keith Canham to make me an adapter for my 8x10 so I can use longer lenses that won't work with the actual WP camera...
