    Re: Spur acurol-n

    I couldn't find info on the capacity of Spur Acurol-N. For my first try I decided to process 6 11x14 sheets, 2 at a time. That worked out fine. I suspect the capacity is considerably higher. As I...

    Ah! That's nice to know. I don't foresee going bigger than 11x14 but who knows. I always envied Elsa Dorfman and her 20x24 Polaroids.

    I have to admit, I enjoy just holding the Apo-Ronar - the weight, quality, glass, movement of the diaphragm, it's impressive.

    Years ago I bought a 1070mm Apo-Ronar. That's about 42" focal length, so 7' bellows at 1:1 magnification. I think that's doable with the Commercial Deardorff. That lens stops down to f260. That would...

    Thanks for the info. That is a bit better. $65 better. Actually, it's better than that. Your quote was for 25 sheets. Mine was for 10 sheets. $10 a sheet vs. $31.50 a sheet.

    Re: 11x14 Deardorff Studio Camera

    You are probably correct. I should buy some Kodak sheet film and make some comparisons. But 11x14 film is going for $315 for 10 sheets. (This is a reply to Peter's post. Not sure why it ended up here)
