    I used a Graflex 4x5 camera while in school.

    Even made sports photos back then with the camera.

    That is the largest format camera I’ve seen!

    Now, the largest I use, is medium format.

    In person and in use -- a couple 20x24 Polaroid cameras. Or maybe the same camera twice. First in a studio situation (actually in a classroom where I assisted the photographer be making ghost images on watercolor paper), and once in the field (unsuccessful due to hot dry conditions creating light leaks).

    I have an 11x14 and have used a 7x17.

    My group made halftones with a horizontal copy camera in a University Graphic Communications class...30" x 30" camera, maybe?
    I was team leader, since I had LF experience.
    Never quite caught on to "units" of light, however.
    The best part was we used a couple of my images, so I got free halftones.

    The 3' module could be removed for field work.
    It needed 3 tripods.
    Late to the show, but if you wanted to use ‘just’ six or seven feet of bellows, “only” two tripods were needed. A pair of “Magic Arms” on each end did the trick. But for the full nine feet, three tripods.

    The rest of the time, one tripod and a Magic Arm sufficed.

    Yes Sweden, then Nashville and now just down the road from Richard.
