    I have this same exact setup. It was in storage until I read about people using x-ray film in LF photography. I am now shooting 11x14 x-ray film and making contact prints. I shortened the stand to 6'. I have all the reducing backs and extension bellows. It is a beautiful camera.

    Yes it is, I really like mine and lucky to find it.


    I may convert the 10X12 back to use an 8X10 Deardorff slider back.

    Of course I am not hiking with it. I am happy to walk again!

    Yes, but you have a very nice one also!

    I like working in my laboratory. Winter work.

    But did meet some local historians, in period clothing today, that need and want a LF shooter.

    Yes, I like my V11. S11 is incredibly engineered!

    As I mentioned, I am now using 11x14 film. I have a 480mm Apo-Ronar in a Copal shutter, which is about a normal lens for 11x14. But I have a 890mm Apo-Nikkor that is mounted on an 11x11" metal plate. I would love to try using it for portraiture but it is an enormous lens. From a search, I see someone suggests building an extension box on a lens board, supported by a second tripod. The mount hole dimensions are 162x1.5 mm, or about 6.4". The mounting flange is 208mm, or about 8.2". Might be doable.

    Read these threads.

    My 890 mm Reinhold is on one box with pics and I have used a 900 mm Tessar on the SC11. At full 75" bellows extension.

    Maybe I will find those images.

    My Ronar 480 works fine but usually I use a APO Nikon 610 mm f 9 which is on the camera now.
