    Searching for a 6x12 historic folder ??? Pls help!!

    Hello,

    some time ago I read a description of a historic folder camera which had a film format of 6x11 or 6x12. I tried to google for it, but could not find a thing. It was a german manufacturer, Agfa or Voigtlaender or Zeiss?!

    I just can't remember the name. Can anybody help?

    Thanks in advance,

    Heinrich

    Could it be the Voigtländer "Filmkamera"?

    I have seen quite a lot of larger format folders (all plate I think) in the antique shops here, but I havent looked closely - most dont seem as wide as 2x1. I dont get the impression that panoramic was that popular (why waste expensive lens coverage) and most of the really wide plate sizes were for stereo, thought I am not an expert.

    Is panoramic really something that came in with modern wide angle lenses?

    Ole, thank you sooo much. The Inos is exactly what I meant.

    Justin, look at the work of Lartigue, that will answer your question.


    Regrds and many thanks....Heinrich

    Kodak also made many cameras for the 116 format, which was about 6.5x11cm.
    Also I beleive Zeiss ikon made their ikontas in a "d" size, which was a similar format.

    The graflex 1A was 2 1/2 x 4 1/4, and used 116 film, which isn't too far off 6 x 12.
