    I was tempted to post a snide comment on the winning bidder on the second #10, but C.D. beat me to it. I wondered if Jim was wavering on his Cirkut interest, but now we all know - no hope for him. Seriously, to me that seems like a really good price for a #10, and you can shoot 9 1/2" aerial film without cutting it down. Although, a couple of features of the #8 are being able to use wider angle lenses than a #10, and shooting sheet film and Cirkut with the same camera. So you may want to keep the #8. Also, be afraid, be very afraid -someday a #16 will show up on eBay.

    Charlie - I tried to find your email address to tell you about this thread, but I'd lost it. As I recall, you once mentioned starting a Cirkut forum or mailing list. This thread seems to indicate there may be a need for such. Any thoughts?

    Len: Did you miss the one that went off late last year? As I remember, it lacked the platform and tripod, but was in more-or-less working condition otherwise. I felt very good about avoiding it (guess I was attending Camera Anonymous meetings), until I saw the final price - something in the $2,000 range.

    I mentioned it to Ron Klein, who suggested that the IAPP site was the best place for it. I didn't pursue it after that, having become quite busy. Maybe if we get a groundswell here, we might get something going. I'm hoping to 'semi-retire', yet again, in the next couple of months.

    Charlie - I too avoided that #16 on eBay. I'm glad an incomplete #16 is unusable, and a complete one very costly. That is what I tell myself whenever one surfaces. For several years I knew of one in Oregon without gearhead which I managed to resist. I would be happy to hear someone else bought it, so I don't have to think about it. The couple of times I seen an actual live #16, it is a wonder to behold. Rather like seeing a full size operating steam locomotive. The jaw drops open and the eyes become glazed.

    I suppose a Cirkut group would be rather inactive, until someone new to Cirkuts joined with many questions. As I recall only part of the archives of the old Panoramic group are available on line. I always wonder about newsgroups and mailing lists - who owns the archives and decides where/if they will be available in the future.

    16" Cirkuts seem as out of reach as Duesenberg J's and other things like that that I waste no time coveting. They're for bigger than life folk. Like people who would drive around the world in a Model A Ford, and re-capture San Francisco with a G. Laurence camera 100 years after he did. I'm in awe but unless I discover one in a shed in Tonopah Nevada.........with film, I'll make due with the #10 I just bought.

    Jim Wrote:
    "....I had to cut 9.5" aerial "recon film down to 8" ....."
    Did you make paper leaders for the start and finish?
    thanks,

    Hi Ed. No. I loaded in the dark and simply taped the film to the take up drum. Cost you about a foot or more of film. Jim

    the leaders are easy to make, just use some black paper from an art store. You can do what Jim did and shoot without a leader but if you use them you can shoot as many rolls as you like. On a good day I would shoot 4 to 6 rolls.

    Also you can load different amounts of film on each roll, say 2 each of 4, 5 and 6 feet then shoot the appropriate roll for the job.

    Anyone getting Cirkut fever from seeing Jim's pic might want to give it a read.

    Oh, and if you read this in time, take a look at "The Cirkut #10 for sale... Next door!" at http://www.photo.net/bboard/q-and-a-...?msg_id=00FzyK ... There is a nice #10 Cirkut on sale at a "drop auction" storefront just a couple hundred yards from my front door... No s**t!

    Turns out it belongs (belonged, if it sells) to a portrait photographer in Blackwood, NJ who is retiring: He dumped all of his cameras, including a nice Crown Graphic; but the star of the show is indeed this baby, and the 12 foot set of tripod leg extensions.

    Also, if anyone wants me to walk over and snap photos of any parts of it and post it here, just let me know.

    Cheers!
