    Question Stand for a 24x24 Chamonix

    Any suggestions for a stand for a 24x24 ULF Chamonix camera? Ive looked at miter saw tables, scissor lifts, standing desks and hydrolic lifts, but I wanted to see if you guys had any other suggestions? Needs to be rock solid, go up and down and ideally have wheels (or I could add wheels). Thanks!

    Mount it to a gun swivel on a 1950s Jeep.

    Hahaha.

    Randy, it’s a 24x24 Chamonix field camera, but I’ll primarily be using it in the studio. I’ll be shooting wet plate with it.

    I don’t have it yet, but it should be here (along with a 30” Dallmeyer and lots of chemicals) in about a week.

    Now I just need to find a stand. ��

    Just order an Erector Set from 8020.

    You know, copy the 20x24 Enlarger in St Petersburg.

    You should get in touch with Lindsey Ross in Santa Barbara, CA. She shoots wet plate on a 24x32 Chamonix and a 20x24 Mammoth Camera in the field and in the studio. Look her up. Her contact information is on her website and her Instagram. Ive been to her studio. Shes a fantastic photographer as well as a warm and friendly person.

    Thanks for thinking of that Cameron. I follow her on Instagram. Shes great.

    I reached out to her over a week ago and no reply unfortutnely. From what I can see in her photos she uses a Dewalt miter saw table. This would be a great portable outside solution, but unfortunately doesnt go high enough for portraits in studio.

    Ive come across a few other lift tables as well, but nothing is quite right.

    Im hoping a stumble across a very large century/centennial camera stand.

    The search continues... 🙂

    For my ULF wetplate work20 x 24 EbonyI use the heaviest biggest Ries/biggest Ries head. It works fine but is not the best solution. The camera weighs 55 lbs in and of itself. I use a Dallmeyer 8D (37 inch lens 17 lbs) that I put a second tripod under. In retrospect I would have purchased a commercial grade video camera tripod that can handle 250 lbsmore expensive but sturdier. Right now I am living with a workable solution albeit not the best. In the studio I am in the process of modifying an ironcast based studio stand that I was gifted. 100 lb base with a pedal to lift the roll around on castors. The rise and fall is geared. Im in no hurry on the project so its a unknown future based result! I never liked the table options as I found them difficult to work around. Good luck and congrats on a beautiful camera and process to work with in large sizes. 20 x 24 plates are stunning when hit in the sweet spot. Look forward to seeing your work

    I'm surprised Randy Moe does not have one of these transmission jacks. Holds >1000Lb and can be had for about $250. If not taking pictures, you can change your transmission too...
