    Is there such a thing as 5x14inch format?

    I was just thinking that 5x14 inch (actually 5.5x14, half of a 11x14 inch sheet) might be a nice panoramic format to work in. The diagonal would be around 15" right? About 380mm. There might be more lenses available to cover than the 7x17 format.

    Is there such a thing?

    Never heard of a 5x14, but Al Vista swing lense cameras had a 140 degree swing lense 5" x 16" format, along with a 5" x 12" format, and a bunch of other sizes as well.

    Sure, just cut a darkslide in half for an 11x14 holder and get two 5x14's per sheet of 11x14 film. I was thinking of going 7x17, but I think this 5x14 route would be the way I would go...when I win the lottery.

    Other than that, I have not heard of the 5x15 format as a stand-alone camera.

    I am presently doing this with my 8x10 camera (3.5x10 negs). Not as smooth-working as a dedicated 4x10 camera, but cheap.

    Given that new ULF cameras and filmholders are pretty much custom equipment anyway, there's no reason not to build one or have one built, if you really like the idea and can afford it.

    There's an eBay seller from India, "lexim2k", who periodically offers a bunch of old wooden cameras in odd formats, including a range of panoramic formats that I've otherwise never seen. He might be able to come up with something close.

    Otherwise, I'd second David's point.

    I have never heard of one, but now that someone has mentioned it I'm sure it's only a question of time before there is one...

    What? You don't already have two of them?

    No, the closest equivalent I have is a 45x107mm - but that's a stereo camera.

    I have some 5x14cm holders though - and some 5x12 inches...

    Hi all
    Have been working on this format since last summer. Have ben awhile in defining exactly what I want it to do. Have also decided to have a second back to shoot 7x11. Am working on the film holders now and have already constructed the bellows. Will keep you advised on my progress. PM me if there are questions.
