    Copy Camera Lenses Advice needed

    Hi all I'm a new member. I used to have a darkroom and am looking to set one up in the next few months. Mostly I shoot images to use in my artwork andf slides. Copy Camera lenses! I have a bunch. The studio I live in was a camera factory that used to build the old room sized cameras and some of the 8x10 and 11x14 as well. I was wondering what to do with them all. My landlord wants to clear the basement and I have posted a few up on ebay but it's a lot of stuff and time. Basically is there an aftermarket for these lenses? Some are Taylor & Hobsons some are Cooke, Wollensaks, Rodenstock, Bausch & Lome. Can anyone reccommend what I need to do. I don't want to give them away on ebay but I don't know how to evaluate them for price or where to go. For my own slide photography I'd be using a 4x5 camera at the most. Maybe a 5x7 but most galleries prefer 4x5 or 35mm for slide submissions. Anyway I could make use of some of them but I can't store them forever either.

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    It's just like being "The Man" at the North Pole prior to Christmas. Make a list, check it twice, and then post it here for further advice.

    Copy Camera Lenses also

    I also have two cases of new 11x14 dark slides. Does anybody still shoot 11x14? Helix Camera told me no one uses tham anymore but I know there is a market out there somewhere. In my lifetime if I had an 11x14 camera I don't think I could wear out this many. Thay were still in the crates so they've never been used.
