    I made a one off film holder, single sided adapter with X-Ray in my Levy Process camera, I documented somewhere here in DIY years ago

    Since the process camera plate holder was bigger than 10X16, I used double sided tape to make quick rebate slots

    It was a test of coverage

    I have thought of doing this, but haven't acted on it yet.

    Okay, thanks. I wondered if you used something like a 14x17 holder....

    Wow. It is interesting to see the strong interest in the 11x14 format. I became heavily invested in the format with a nice Wisner camera, and many film holders, a few lenses too. But I found that I personally prefer the "presence" of the 14x17 format. To me it is not that much more trouble to carry around a larger camera. (Sure, I was extremely fortunate to get a 14x17 camera made for me) But seeing this now, maybe I should re-visit my intention to sell off all my 11x14 gear?

    Hi All,

    What about all of us using 10 x 12? It's half again as large as 8 x 10. The film is available from Ilford and as x-ray film. Makes a great contact print on 11 x 14 paper.

    Keep Well,
    uncle jim

    I love 10x12. Shot about 60 sheets over the last few years.

    Just to be different and retro. I use the following:-

    12x10”, 15x12”, 24x30cm, 30x40cm.

    30x40cm ............ o 12x16in? You'd be the first one!

    Actually, the second one, I do 12"x16" in-camera photography (Harman, Imago and Ilfochrome back-then); this is the reason why I put it among the UL formats (and then I messed up when voting so it did not get recorded). I was curious to see if there is someone else doing 12x16, 16x20, o 20x24 in-camera photography. But this may mess up the poll by mixing ULF negatives and ULF positive papers, so it would probably make sense to keep the two approaches separate and disregard the 12x16 entry. Just a thought.

    In fact, this friend of mine is developing the tank with film in mind. I am not sure it can be used for paper, especially fiber based. He told me there is a non-trivial issue of <time to pour the liquid in the tank> vs <development time>. With negatives you can extend the development time and "cover" the lag in pouring the liquid; with paper I do not know, those of you more knowledgeable than me ... feel free to chime in.

    There must a number of active 30x40cm photographers in Germany as this was not an uncommon size in reisekameras.
    I have certainly sold a couple of sets (camera plus 2/3 double plate holders) in the past 5 years.

    I make 40cm to be 15.75”, rather than 16”!

    Thank you very much to all of those who took the time to answer the poll. I will keep the forum posted about the development of this tank.
    Happy holidays!
