    Re: ALL Yosemite Campgrounds CLOSED!

    I remember those day when I lived in California. I was 6 hours away and did just that. Watched the forecast and headed to camp 4 and hunkered down. Now you can't even get into camp 4.

    Re: ALL Yosemite Campgrounds CLOSED!

    I was in the valley years ago after they received 6 feet of snow! They evacuated the entire park. I got in the day it opened. Had the place to myself. Set up the 14x17 in the middle of the road by...

    Re: Starting with ULF

    I can add my experience with ULF for you. I shoot 820, and 1417. I built and sold my 1114 to a good friend. I build all of my cameras so that is not an issue for me. When you go to ULF film holders...

  16. Re: Please post your Manuals & Resources on Building your own Large Format Camera
