    Re: Who Uses 5x12?

    I'm still using mine, albeit not as much lately. I do have a plan to go out soon and shoot some with it, but there's a lens I need CLA'd first that I want to use with it (lucky score on a 190 Wide-Field Ektar). The big plus with it for me is that my 5x12 is a Canham, so it shares the base chassis with my 5x7, so it stays light and mobile. For processing, I use a Jobo 3005 drum - the film sticks up out of the tubes a little, but it fits fine inside the cone of the lid, and I've not had any issues with the finished negatives.

    You asked about other pano formats.

    I use 7 x 17 quite a bit and love the ratio to it.

    I went to 5x12 Korona when I got too old and weak to handle the 7x17 Korona easily. I have 7 holders 3 original for film, and 3 new ones from Sandy. The 7th is a Korona for dry plates. I like the format, but still see in 7x17. The size just suits my vision better.
