  2. Re: Orotone work in Dallas on 32 x 38 dry plates

    Re: 5x7 Gandolfi with 4x5 Back

    My 5x7 is a Gandolfi. Judging by the size of your ground glass, it does look like yours is capable of 5x7. Measure as Tracy suggested above. It's not a complicated project to make a back if you have...
  4. Re: Has anyone designed and built their own camera bag?

    I did once ('80's) design a camera bag for my Wista 45 and two lenses (plus some film holders). I then had my mom sew it from scratch using my drawings.
    Mom was like that - very talented and a...

    Re: 8x10 platform head options

    FLM CP-38. I still have my Rieses (2 Ries, A & J...) But the CP-38 works fabulously well from 5x7 through 8x10 to 12x20. For the last I use a half-ball strictly for levelling as that's all a pano...

    Back when I lived in California I had a Eurovan Camper that I loved. It was great! Comfortable, both on the road and in the campsite. I took it several times to Yosemite. The great thing about it (I...

  10. Re: I'm not sure if it's a popular size, but can I get some 5x7 camera recommendation

    5x7 may well be underappreciated. But it is well represented even on the "new" market alone. When you consider the used market, there are lots of options. Two that I've had (the wood Canham and the...
  11. Re: Alternative Processing: An Overview with Bostick & Sullivan

    The link says, "5:30-7:00pm MST". However, if I am to believe Google, New Mexico observes daylight savings time. So plan wisely.

  20. Re: Wisner Technical Field 11x14 Lensboards

    The "large" Wisner lens boards are nominally 5 1/4" x 5 1/4". Wisner made no larger.

    Re: 10 3/4" Dagor for 7/17?

    Yes, the 10 3/4" Dagor absolutely covers 7x17. And it is a great focal length for that format.

    I no longer pursue 7x17, but when I did, it was a favorite focal length. The lens I had I purchased...

  36. Re: Nikkor SW 150 on Canham 8x10 Lightweight?

    I believe the 8x10 lightweight used lensboards 110mm x 110mm, so you should be OK. But at the same time I strongly advise you to contact Keith Canham and ask him directly.
