    I should be taking delivery of an 11x14 Seneca Improved this week. I have an 19" Red Dot (in shutter) and a 260 f10 Nikkor Process (no shutter), that should cover it.

    Looking forward to the big film!!

    Anyone know if there's a source of 11x14 color neg?

    Welcome from another Seneca user. (abuser?) Don't think there's any fresh 1114 film left on earth but you occasionally see some show up on Ebay.

    I think some people put together a special order together not too long ago for something like Portra 400 VC, and I know someone who did a special order on his own for one of the Portra films in 11x14", so it's possible.

    well.. the camera's here, and it's beautiful. can't wait to get some negatives from it. First, some lens boards. Anyone know of a source of Seneca boards? Matching is my first choice.. otherwise, it's down to the hardware store to get some raw materials to make my own

    Jim, I've made several lens boards for my Seneca 8x10. It's not that hard to do. Take some measurments and try your local hobby store for some thin Mahogany or look on E-bay for craft wood sellers that have thin stock. I have found several that are very good. If you laminate the pieces together they will come out nice. Good luck.

    Stay Focused!!
