    Re: What is the largest format camera that you have seen ever?

    I helped to scrap a huge process camera. I saved some film, 36x48 inches. I had the 2 lenses 1 was a 60 inch Rodenstock. I traded them to someone. My 11 X14 camera has 60 inch bellows, not long enough to use that lens. The copy board must have been at least 4x6 feet. My dumbest act was not taking the table top UV plate burner. They had a almost new 2 stage Ilford processor that passed through the wall for film. I got a nice Pako mixing valve and some other goodies. Graphic arts darkrooms are pretty boring. No big sink or trays because of the processor. I have a friend with a baby 16 x 20 Robertson, he copied historical photos with that camera. I loved playing with process cameras. Vacuum back, big ground glass. If I was young and foolish I would cut off about 5 feet of rail and build a 16 x 20 camera on a trailer :-)
