    20x24 darkcloth size recommendation

    What size of a dark cloth do you recommend for a 20x24 camera?

    Thanks,

    Kev

    8'X10' is probably minimum size. I have a 6'X9' cloth and it is really a bit small for 20X24.

    Yeah Kevin. Figuring the guy will not be taking the camera in the field and stuff...it really does not matter if the darkcloth is big and bulky. 8x10 seems like a good size.

    Damn thats a large darkcloth!

    It is almost 8 ft around the ground glass, either velcro or elastic or both...so you have a tube 8 ft around at one end and it could taper to the viewing end with the ability to velcro the tube at the bottom the whole distance?

    for really windy days a reflex viewer would be a nice touch..

    Yeah, but Dave, even without that reflex finder you guys have an awful lot of weight to carry.

    I had a 20x24, it takes a bit of cloth to cover a monster f this size, mine was mounted on a wheeled cart to move it into place! I think 8x10 FOOT would be minimum to have a good usable dark cloth for this sized camera...

    LOL

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.

    No, I make them. I had a request to make one for a 20x24 camera and I wanted to know what size would be needed.

    Everyone thank you again for all the input! Greatly appreciated!

    I know someone who has a Lotus 20x24" on a wheeled cart, but he says he's supported it in the field using a Black and Decker Workmate portable work bench.
