    20x24'' Chamonix field camera

    Very first shooting on the 20x24 inches ULTRA LARGE FORMAT "field" camera. Five people are quite enough to operate this beast!

    Thanks! It works fine. But was very cold. We definitely will shoot more with this camera!

    This is what Carleton Watkins dreamed 21st century photography would be like!

    That is so awesome. Those negatives will make nice contact prints. How to you plan to print them?

    We are going to enlarge the ULF negatives since we have a new MAMONT LED 20x24'' enlarger. Next video will be about it.

    When I commented I hadn't realized that you are that lucky guy with the incredible 20x24 enlarger. I want one along with a 20x24 camera too. I am delighted that it seems possible to order a new 20x24 camera and enlarger in 2018. Maybe if I sell my apartment in California I can afford to join the elite club of people with these awesome cameras and very impressive enlargers.

    The funny thing - that inside the enlarger we found 3 plugs. Mr. Heiland installed it just in a case for something. So in principal you can live inside, plenty of space to sleep, 3 plugs for a kettle, smartphone and reading lamp ))
    Seriously, It's absolutely amazing that in 2018 the film is SO alive!

    I think Anton has the world's first modern 20X24 enlarger, so he may go big!
