    Being a bit of a photo antiquity myself after more than fifty years photography, I don't relish the idea of spending the rest of my existence on a landfill.

    I have an old Graflok roll film adapter for 4x5 that is, like, 1,500 years old. I know I will never that capacity to use it. I have had ot for a year and I don't see it leaving anytime soon. Yeah, it's OK to toss unneededs. Good luck trying to carry through with it.
    Thank you.

    I find that I feel the need to rescue things from the dumpster. Hence, the 8x10 Century No. 7 studio camera on it's stand in my living room. The lights that came with it are in a different room. One of the lights plugs into a lens board and is usable with the camera, though I haven't figured out how to use it properly.

    I also have some old Kodak ads, one of which is for IR film during WWII (I think).

    Curious... could this be a means of converting the camera into a projector or enlarger? I have heard of an adapter for large format cameras to make enlargers out of them but I've never seen one.
