    For å period there was a 36" lens at Camera Traders, can't remember the aperture but it was massive. Ednsd up going up island to a guy making a camera obscura on the water that you could kayak into.
    And then my roommate got the gig to go up and work as an assistant for the project for a week.

    I salvaged lenses from an immense process camera in a former life the shortest was 60 inches, both Rodenstock. Foolishly or Thankfully I traded them off for next to nothing. Some of the film I found was 3x4 feet, camera was bigger than that.
    I should have scavenged more stuff, got some odds and ends.

    This was leads to madness from my experience:-)

    and some of us have the monster 11X14 Commericial Deardorf at 800 lbs

    It came with 20 ft tall pipes for studio perspective control

    Here is mine with shortened pipes, but new bellows and waiting for 11X14

    We love these 1929 monsters

    I worked on a 3x4 foot Brown copy camera built into the wall between the darkroom and the copy room. The back had 2 opposing hinged doors. One was ground glass the other was a vacuum back. Lens board and copy board were motorized. Mostly shot lith film and made tool masters for integrated circuits. Always 68 degrees and controlled humidity, nice place to work.

    I was shown a similar setup, a day shift only operation

    2 rooms

    The factory did everything in house in 1 millon sq ft

    Miles of silk screen on everything

    We had many heavy duty RTV repeaters

    Bob Cone and the people at Rockland Colloid turned an airplane hanger into a large format camera, does that count ? the photograph made with it can be found in the rockland colloid gallery.

    The largest camera I have seen was a graphic arts camera 4 feet square or so. the largest view camera (was a field camera) was a Mammoth Plate camera that was in a museum show of the work of Edward Curtis

    8x10, my own. Maybe this is something I should correct?
