    My three 11x14 film cassettes are still in mint/like new condition, but my (DIY plywood) 11x14 camera has been so trashed and cannibellized (jeesh...cannot spell that word!) over the years, and the old salvaged De Golden Busch bellows has endured so many episodes of mold growth/re-cleaning over the years during various periods of inappropriate storage - that its time to build another one. (but do I have it in me....another camera build?)

    But why, oh why, do we (I know I'm not alone in this) seem to want bigger and heavier cameras as we get less and less able to even hoist them up onto our tripods...much less carry them around!

    Edit - Cannibalized (there, I looked it up! )

    Andrew, nice job on the videos. I'm glad you show what can be done in a small space. So many photographers say I can't do it because I don't have the room. For years I developed 14x17 in a small bathroom. Keep the videos coming. Nice to throw in some humor too.

    Thanks, Jim. Appreciate it! I learnt how to work in a small space all the years I spent in Japan. One tray is all one needs... It's starting to get banged up. Need to source a replacement. Any advice?

    If it's one tray the a Cesco Lite is the way to go. It is the one I use. Not cheap but does the job especially with X-ray film.

    Thanks, Ashishwakhlu! That was the Fujinon C 600. Wonderful lens. I also use a Nikkor M 450, 355 G-Claron for some wideness...
