    Does anyone have any knowledge as to the availability of a 6x16 back theat will fit an MPP series seven camera?

    Any directions would be appreciated.

    Yes, I did mean 6 x 12 -- BBQ and a beer on a nice day.

    Thanks for the info.

    Sounds like a good use for it. I'm planning on ordering one myself in a week or so - assuming I can find a store with one in stock. I'll let you know how it works.

    i bought a horseman 6x12 (new) back this spring from midwest photo exchange (mpex.com). I can say I wish I had bought it years ago. I did a price search between calumet and b&h and mpex, and mpex was cheaper at the time.

    Robert,

    Sounds like you have a panoramic itch as well!

    Yes, I have an interest as well. I'm been holding off ordering one because I wasn't sure if I wanted to get involved in another format (I already do 35mm and 4x5). But, I'm beginning to think that there are good sales potentials here for panoramic images. FWIW, I am looking at Midwest Photo Exchange as well.
