    Re: how to cut film in the dark?

    I cut 6x10 & 5x8 like this for years. As Keith says, just get it set up & working in the daylight & then have a routine for cutting in the dark. I use scissors to nick the end of the "new,...

    Re: Help me identify this 8x20

    Agreed; Folmer did not make an 8x20; they made 12x20 & a 7x17 reducing back. They were limited by short bellows, but are much higher quality construction than a Korona.

    The Koronas used to have...
  3. Re: 12x20 / 14x17 conversion back for Phillips 11x14 Explorer

    Dick built two 14x17 cameras and several 8x20. As Oren pointed out, the Explorer backs are fixed in landscape orientation and are not removable.

    Re: Ritter 11x14 Feedback

  8. Re: Korona 12x20 compatibility with Lotus or Chamonix Film Holders?

    I'll say it since everyone seems to be dancing around it: Richard Ritter makes films holders for ULF cameras. I have several and they're great.

  9. Re: Depth to Septem on YOUR 14X17" film holders
