    Greetings,
    I got this little tid bit off the Midwest Large Format Asylum a great LF'r group.

    Jack Deardorff has resumed making view cameras in Valparaiso In. I
    learned that he will give a talk on the Deardorff company and show one
    of the cameras at the February joint meeting of The Chicago Photographic
    Society and Mid-States Imaging and Photographic Association. The meeting
    will be held at 7:00 P.M., Tuesday, February 15 at the Hampton Suites on
    Old Orchard Road in Skokie.

    I have talked to Mr. Deardorff, the above is a quote from my Midwest LF post. He is making cameras from the same parts he had when he closed the company and will be making an 11x14. I am already on the list!!..Evan Clarke

    Being female and as pointed out in another thread we tend to go for lighter, I will stick with a Jim Chinn 11x14. I want to support our apuggers who are making items for us luddites.
