    I saw that as well. For me it would be fun to shoot with a 20x24, but I think 8x10 is best suited to my workflow. Maybe 11x14 someday

    Its kind of ironic how lots of folks (myself included), as our bodies grow older and older, want to go bigger and bigger.

    I can think of any number of remote locations where I'd love to have a 20x24 to play around with...but lately, this older and older body of mine is starting to think otherwise!

    Hmmm...what about designing and incorporating a 20x24 into some kind of rickshaw or garden cart? Time to get out that graph paper...and sharpen that pencil?

    I was planning a 'histerical' hand cart that wood slide into my pickup

    but then i had to quit driving, poor eyesight, my decision

    I can push it to next year's coffee shop and my Historical Village

    John - You might scale your idea down a bit like this photographer did: https://danageraths.blogspot.com/201...-complete.html

    Ha! Looks like a civil war relic! I like the footstool/steps attachment - and the adjustable rear brace to change the viewing angle, which might also double as a mule harness (or horse, alpaca, dog, person, etc.).

    But expanding on the garden-cart idea - I could envision having some sort of parallelogram lifting frame with a crank...to adjust the height of the camera, plus a couple more cranks to adjust the camera angle. Could work!

    All good, and without dampening anyone's spirit, the negatives, the carriage + long ears to pull it....they all require space, like a 3-car garage perhaps.

    On occasion I noticed there is real life outside the GG/viewfinder.
