    Re: A-Pattern or 'A' Pattern camera

    I have a very nice 10x12 A Pattern. Definitely the most interesting camera I own. Really an amazing technical camera for 1904. There was a 12x15 A Patterned auctioned in the last couple years. ...

    Re: Bosch & Lomb 18/21 barrel lens

    Ah, that's likely a petzval, though some of these projection lenses are triplets. Not sure those markings are focal lengths. If the whole lens was an 18" lens, just the front would be something...

  9. Re: Korona 11x14 back is wiggly. Has anybody repaired this and how did you do it?

    I recently had an 8x20 Korona. It wasn't the tracks on the focus rail as opposed to how loose the screws holding the front standard in place were. Once I locked the standard in place with focus...

    Re: Wet plate focus confusion.

    I'd check difference between the location of the ground glass and the plate in the plate holder when the backs are switched again. I don't think it's an issue of chemical focus. at all. Though 5mm...

    Re: Stuck lens whenever on large Derogy

    I have a No. 6. Both groups unscrew from the barrel. Mine is missing the hood, I suspect it was lost long ago. Oh, I should add my lens also has traces of black paint on the front.

    Re: How Early Could It Have Happened?

    You should take a look at "Burning with Desire" by Batchen. It's about proto photography and the lead up to 1839.

  20. Re: Is there such as thing as a modern, fast, compact 360 for 8x10?

    Yes, it's same as the Congo as far as I know. Mine is in a Copal 3S from the late 80's.
  21. Re: Is there such as thing as a modern, fast, compact 360 for 8x10?

    Sure there is. The Osaka Commercial 360mm f6.8. Very sharp, light and usually cheap. It's a late coated Japanese Tessar. I love mine.
  22. Re: Were Verito 18” lenses made in different barrel lengths?

    That's exactly what I was after. The 22.25" Verito I recently picked up is mounted in barrel with the flange at the back. My 12x20 Canham can hold the lens up but it does want to start tipping...
  23. Re: Were Verito 18” lenses made in different barrel lengths?

    As it turns out, I ended up with the shorter Verito with the Studio shutter pictured in this thread via KEH. Small world.

    It's amazing stuff. And at the dilutions used for fixing plates, not particularly worrisome if used with care. I do have some, but you'd have to be in SF to pick it up. I'm mostly interested in...

    See page 7. It covers 14x17 wide open and 18x22 with a smaller stop. I suspect it would cover 20x24 with a small stop. It's a 21.3" (542mm)...
  35. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    It's not going to cover 20x24. 19" (48cm) Dagor is what you want for that.
  36. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    It's a great lens. That is an early example. Likely with a different aperture scale. Dagors tend not to be super sharp wide open. You'll need to stop it down a bit for sharpness across the field....
  37. Re: Goerz Doppel Anastigmat Serie III No 7 360mm f6 COVERAGE or lens catalogue

    It's a f7.7 lens and should cover all the way to 12x20.
