    NY Times Photography Article

    Interesting article; hard to judge trends by one show, even a large one.

  6. Lightweight 8x10 architectural camera (A-S?)

    Hi Brian,

    Well, in my original post I wrote of "my quest for a precision 8x10 that is light enough to carry around." So yes, I suppose a 12lb. camera is light enough to carry around, although I...

    Hey thanks, Marco, for that report! The rigidity of the front standard with the extender was a concern of mine, as my favorite lens is the Nikkor 360W and with many cameras' front standards, that...

    Toyo 810M into 11x14

    11x14 format or bigger

    I just want to add that Lotus is also _apparently_ an excellent source for ULF film holders (I recommend Fidelity for holders, but 11x14 is the largest they make). In July 2000 had approached ...
