    All natural images are analog. But the retina converts them to digital on their way to the brain.

    So does that mean I can shoot my 8x10" camera and take a 6x17 cm sliver out of it to post here?

    No. In my opinion that would not be "in the spirit" of the thread.

    Has to be true 6x17 cm.

    Rule carved in Jello to be molded any way the OP likes.

    Awww! You mean I had my custom 6x17 carrier made for nothing?
    Some time ago I alerted the LF community the B+H was selling Omega D-5 126 carriers for ten dollars each. I bought a few (7)to qualify for free shipping. They have since been cut out to 6x6, 6x9, 4x5 and a couple 120 film 6x17 and this one that allows a 4x5 sheet to be positioned to the 6x17 cut out window. The locating pins are out of the way but hold the top and bottom together. I don't have a 6x17 back but wanted to explore that format with my Fujinon 75mm 5.6. I know the easel blades also work.
    My friend Bob has a machine shop in his basement. Not a photo buff, but has rebuilt my Packard shutter and a friend's, cut threaded lens mounting rings and more stuff.Click image for larger version.

    Right, we'll have to post our 6x25 images in another section.

    Doesn't anyone else want to post some of their 6x17-cm photos?

    This one of a hunting shack in the Louisiana swamp... close to the road but only accessible by boat.

    No, I am holding out for when I can post my XPan 24x68's. I don't see why they should not be allowed. After all, 24 is bigger than 6 and 68 is way bigger than 17 and the aspect ratios are exactly the same.

    Very nice Bob.
    I have only a few 6x17 images, did not get a camera until this summer and still need to take it out more.
    This one a street scene from Portland.
