    Here's a question that I haven't seen asked before. I'm aware of the Goerz serial # progression, the highest of which I am aware is ~84xxxx (until recently). The list that everyone has seen stops in...

    You can also look into a Polaroid MP4 camera with a Kenro 8x10 head, works very well. I've used mine for >500x magnifications of transistor chips.

    One more bit of bad news. Shooting at f64 at 1:1 puts you at f128 effective aperture - if you're using anything smaller than 8x10 sharpness is going to be severly degraded.
