    Brian, and I thought I was nuts! A 30 x 36! I know you are serious! You take the cake! Brian, I hope Dan can get you the info you need. Might also try Barry Young. He is a camera builder in the Pacific Northwest.
    Don't remember if I posted the shot of me and my Walnut 11x14 and tripod yet so here goes.

    Curt, thanks. I'm really proud of this one. It only took 10 months to build.

    My scanner will not take an 11x14 print but I do have a crop of a shot taken with the camera in the Ojai area. It was done with my Hybrid Voigtlander 18" Euroscop @ F-45. (I basically have the rear element of this lens and a +1 diopter for the front element). It was printed on some old Azo contact paper. I just got back from the Redwoods and have some images that are drying and I'll try to scan them when I can. My digital camera is dead so I can't photograph the prints and post them.
    The print does not show well on the web but looks good when you see it.
    Working with 11x14 is way slower than 8x10. The size and bulk slows you down even more.... but I love it!!

    Looks good. The mountains around Ojai are full of wonderful places to photograph. My late wife's sister and her husband used to live in Ojai, they had a Christmas tree farm on the east end of town just past Soule Park. Unfortunately I wasn't into photography the way I am today, but I do have a few good shots of the area. I really used to enjoy the scenic drive on Highway 33 going north out of Ojai. It brings back a lot of wonderful memories.

    Yes, the area is a good place to work. This shot was taken just past the Wheeler Gorge campground off of highway 33.

    Jim, Is that a leather bellows on that baby? And did you make it yourself? Pretty camera. Robert

    Robert, thanks. It is not a leather bellows. Some sort of synthetic I guess. It is very light weight and extends about 36"+ and I think the seller said it was from Camera Bellows or Western, I'm not sure. I got it off of e-bay for 100.00 from a guy in Texas. The great thing about this bellows is that it fit perfectly to my frames when I got it. I had already built the back box and bellows frame and it was like it was made for my camera. Luck was finally on my side. I love the 11x14 format. Harder to set up than my 8x20 but when you look at the ground glass (TV screen!) you are hooked!

    Jim
