    Re: 14X17 Fire Studio

    I have associated Fire Studio with Jim Fitzgerald for some reason - may not be true. Here is his 14x17 build back in 2018 but the ebay one had different hardware. https://www.largeformatphotography.i...ighlight=14x17. I don't suppose Jim could do such fine carbon work with flimsy cameras.

    Please don't associate me with this company. If I was ever too start a company and build cameras for photographers it would be Carbon Art Photography.

    Just from watching Jim's builds and looking at the Fire Studio holder, I knew he couldn't be behind it.
    Please stop feeding the trolls.

    Exactly, his builds are very sturdy, even his last lightweight version.

    Re: 14X17 Fire Studio

    Thanks guys. My big 14x17 to 20x24 is for sale but it is a beast a sturdy one at that. My lightweight 21 pound 14x17 is a dream to use and is solid as well. I've always taken my time and tried to build them right and with the finest quality wood and materials I can afford. After all they are all for me!!

    I meant no offense Jim, apologies. I knew you were selling a 14x17 camera a while back and this one showed up about the same time in the same general geographical area. So I mistakenly merged the two.

    Yes, easily done and it had occurred to me as well - two ULF builders in Washington State etc etc but any coincidence pretty well paled quickly, the quality is the difference and it's not hard to see which 'manufacturer' stands out.......................

    regards to all and well done Jim

    Not a problem at all. I just wanted to clear up any confusion.
