    Re: Alternative Studio Camera Stands

    I built a tray for the Deardorff 14x14 to sit in (it's 6 feet long") on a sit/stand lift desk mechanism. No tilt, but adjusts from 28.7" to 44.6". There's a motor in each leg. Instead of using...

  7. Re: 38 year old Polaroid pull-apart film advice

    Try getting your hands on some of the Fuji 3000b. The bw images are fine grain and beautiful. While it is all expired now, should be good for a looooong time if stored cool. I zip-lock bagged my...

    Thanks for braving the cold Jim! Haven't found one yet that exactly meets that spec. When it is delivered, I'll carefully try out the one I ordered. It is 32 pitch. May be able to shim the plate the...

    Could use some help on a couple of things. First, is this a Century 8A? If not, what is it? Second, everything works except the geared focus. The parts are all there except for the geared wheel that...

    Jason, Do you still have it? I've got a Deardorff 14x14 copy camera and could use a spare! The # is the camera serial. I think it was 17th one.

    I know you've been waiting 10 years for an answer! The Deardorff 14 x 14 ERC Copy Camera has an 18 7/8" square outside dimension. Could that be it?
