I recently got 10 exposures worth of Provia 100 4x5 so now I'm looking for an LF camera to rent in Toronto. Does such a thing exist?

Try Headshots on Dundas E near Logan.

Vistek? Might be worth a call just for leads. Same goes for TIW.

I would try Film Plus in the west end - symington and dupont I recall. A most personable shop.

They likely either have some yto rent, or someone who works there will rent you one.

I presume you will also need film holders and maybe a changing bag.

You have sorted out development and what it will cost?

PM me if all else falls thorough. I can get you fixed up with a cameras for a week or so and process 4x5 in a sink line on hangers, if no one else will.

Alright, looks like I'm on the hunt for a 4x5 field camera. I checked out the Film Plus rentals and they only have 4x5 studio cameras for rent. Any suggestions of where to look? Should I just give up?

Well 4x5 E-6 processing is pretty dear at labs that still do it. I have a stash of 100 or so sheets of expired EPP bought at the last phsc camera show, and slowly I shoot a sheet or two whan I have my crown graphic out with me. I think there are perhaps 8 sheets on the shelf at home in the darkroom waiting for the next time I mix a litre of e-6 chems.
