    Where does a person get film for the thing? Or would one have to use paper for a paper negative?

    Wow, Right up the road from me in San Francisco. I could probably be there in 20 minutes. Only problem is the camera exceeds my $20.00 craiglists limit.

    If you bought this you'ld need a 30x40 enlarger too. MAJOR G.A.S.

    I especially like the extension back on it. At least I think that's what I see in the photo.

    Looks like it really needs a military surplus anti-aircraft mount, possibly in the back of humvee although an M3 half-track would be better.

    Well, you gotta admit that it does make a lot better negative than a HIT camera, a negative that is just what you need when you want to blow it up to billboard size using largely's 30x40 enlarger.

    hmm 27x40 or 18x40 now those would make some nice contact prints. And just think would not need a digital negative to do it. Of course the amount of pt/pd might break the bank.

    Hey Matt/Monty - just think of the Wet Plate you guys could do.

    Oh my bad!
    I think 8x10 will be enough for me and for the bank account...

    I don't know who it is, but it definitely is not Doug Busch. Different hair style and color, and different physique. Also Doug does not live in the Bay area.

    Okay,

    I admit it--I have found my limit. I have finally been shooting Quioxte again--it has been a busy year work wise. I have to say I love it but alas 30 x 40 exceeds the outer boundaries of my insanity. Nay dare I say it--its too big for me! There, there it is. It feels good to have said it.

    Now as to his lenses......

    what was that email address again????

    ssshhhhhhhh my wife is coming down the hall--she might hear you typing. Spider (G.A.S.) sense she has is crazy strong.
