    Universal Heliar for 8x10

    Would 30cm cover? Apart from coverage, is 36cm better for portaits? The difference in length does not seem large.
    Thanks

    36cm is the sweet spot for 8x10 portraiture in my mind. You'll want a robust front standard. My 8x10 Deardorff can handle the regular 36cm Heliar with a brace under the Packard shutter, but the Universal is heavier.

    I have booth the 300mm and the 360 Universal Heliar for 8x10 I recommend the 360mm the covering is not a problem for the 300mm especially with portrait distances!

    Thank you. So if I understand it right, it is only a matter of perspective between the two focal lengths.
