    355mm G-Claron 12x20 14x17 photos?

    Hello I am trying to find photos taken on 12×20 & 14x17 with a 355mm G-Claron but am not having too much luck through google. If anyone has examples please post them, thank you.

    I can't help you, but thanks for asking.

    Users of G-Clarons regularly report that their lenses cover much more than Schneider claims. Schneider claims that the 355 G-Claron covers 444 mm at f/22. 14x17 fits in a 560 mm circle, 12x20 in a 590 mm circle. I'd like to see the shots so I can decide for myself whether Schneider is as conservative as users say.

    Schneider publishes two set of specs, one for strict graphics reproduction standards at f/22, the other for 1:1 bellows extension. Neither really applies to typical taking photography situations. For that, you really need to talk to existing users and how much movement you'll get, whether contact printing or enlargement etc.

    I don't have examples ready at hand but I can say as a 14x17 shooter that the 355 G-Claron does in fact cover 14x17, with limited movement.

    Mine covers my 11x14 with no aparent limitations. Just stop down enough.

    Does anyone know how wide it might look? I read somewhere that its around 40mm on a 35mm camera. Does that sound right to anybody? Ps im also looking to buy one in a barrel if anyone is selling.

    Sorry but I do not have any examples. I have used my 355 G-Claron on 14x17 often. It's quite wide.

    Depends which way you crop (because 14x17 isn't the same ratio as the 2x3 of 35mm).
    (I've done this quickly so someone might want to check my maths)
    17x14" is 431x355mm.
    Crop to 431x287 to get 3x2 aspect
    Then 355*36/431 = 29.6mm.
    at f/9 that also works out to a 35mm DOF of 29.6mm f/0.75 (I'd be stopping down to at least 355mm f/64 to get a semi-reasonable 29mm f/5.4 in 35mm-equiv)

    I'm also interested in G-Clarons for my 12x20 project, but I probably can't afford one (I'll just stick with pinholes for now)
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    I've heard of a number of people using them on 12X20 and 11x14, but a lot depends on the quality you need in the corners of the field. Since
    ULF shooter tend to contact print, this does not became anywhere near an issue as in enlargement. Most users of such lenses stop them
    down quite a ways. I just shoot 8x10, and know that I could limit out a 355 G even on that format in certain situations, like those involving a lot
    of rise or tilt (not hard to encounter when you're trying to shoot redwoods from down in a creekbed!). G-Clarons are generally a bargain compared to other options, and work well all the way from closeup to infinity.

    I have used my 355 often on my 12x20 Lotus. All contact prints and stopped down to f45 or so, everything is sharp corner to corner. For reference, just cut out a 12x20 rectangle from some larger mounting board and hold 14 inches from vision for your view. I've had one for years for framing before I set the beast up.
