    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    That answers most of my questions very nicely.

    I might have to run some numbers and do an amortization on costs vs. just shooting sheet film.

    This is getting a bit interesting....

    Robert, yes, that's called 35mm...a format I gave up 8 years ago.

    You're still on my list BTW...I'll be coming down this weekend. I'll call you.

    Michael,

    Its always better to make one cut on film instead of two.
    Reduces the chance of scratching in half.

    Also remember be careful to cut on the side of the film opposite the notch, you don't want to trim that off.

    I know others have had great results with cutting down roll film. I haven't.
    It always wants to stay curled.

    Something to think about...
    If you keep the film in its 12x20 format instead of cutting it, you get a little extra room to hold the negative without damaging the image.

    Good point, and just crop your prints.

    You never know when you might see an image that works better in 12x20, and you have the whole camera set up for doing 10x20.

    10x20 ULF

    Michael,

    I actually bought such a camera from Ebay a few weeks ago. Well, the camera is from India, beautifully made with 38" bellow, about 100 years old, I guess. It came with 2 holders which were not made to take today's sheet films. No problem, I have located a small shop in China specializing in wooden cameras and holders and they are custom making 5 holders for me as we speak. The film size as I measured is really 9 1/2 x 19 1/2", the ground glass is 10x20". I had searched high and low for films and by pure luck found 5 rolls of Kodak Aerographic Plus-X films 9 1/2 x 250 feet. I bought the guy's whole inventory which will last a few years for me.

    I feel so excited about this project because this is my first ULF and the more I lookat this 10x20" size, the more I like it. One thing is certain, my picutres will look a little different than popular 8x20" and 12x20" ones.

    Ask me any questions and good luck in your search.

    Welcome Hugo,

    It would be great to see some photos of the "new" camera!

    10x20 ULF

    Dave,

    I have some pictures of the camera. But as a computer illiterate, I can't figure out how to it here. If you give me your email address, I can send some there and you can post them here for those interested.
