    Re: 11x14 Deardorff Studio Camera

    I recently had Custom Bellows make 2 new sections of bellows for a friends S11, they cost 200 pounds per section, not including shipping. The quality is superb, as always.

    Re: How to get into ULF? THE RIGHT WAY.

    I would suggest finding an inexpensive 8"x10" set up and working with it for a few months(shoot, process your own film, make prints) before considering ULF. Smaller than 8"x10" won't, in my opinion,...
