    BIG LENS

    Oh, Murray and I go way back, he knows I'm a little nutty too, in fact. (anybody that builds a 20x24 camera just because he has the bellows lying about can't be sane..)

    The bellows are scrounged from a process camera, it had 2 lenses that you could choose from, hence the odd front shape. Other than the aluminum tilt pieces and threaded inserts, everything is...

    new 8x10 field camera

    Murray, you know me well enough to know I use the "close enough" approach.

    I mean, do I really care if the front and rear standards are within .0001" of parallel?

    Pictorico OHP, anyone found alternatives?

    Gneissgirl,
