    Dave, studio404 is a group of photographers, myself included, that exhibit together nationwide. There are more members than the site presents, but since they haven't given me any images to post, I didn't include them yet. We are a group of 14 artists that met in graduate school at Savannah College of Art and Design.

    I'm only half insane with 12x20, but I do belive that it is actually larger than 14x17 by a couple square inches!

    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.

    I may be less insane in terms of size, but the availability of 30x40cm (about 12x16") puts it in it's own class of insanity. The only cameras I've seen are variations over the Russian plate cameras like mine - big, heavy, ugly folding "field cameras" weighing in at 15kg (32 lb) and up. The (plate, not film) holders that are all that's available are also so heavy that I'm almost glad I have only one.

    When I have a momentary fit of sanity I take the (antique, German) 24x30cm plate camera out for an airing. I was surprised to find that it's easier to get film for that than the "Olga". And a "standard" lens is only 360mm, which explains that length's place in the lineups of all German lens manufacturers.

    And the format closest to the Golden mean....

    12 x 20 images are indeed a visual delight....I had the privilege a while back in Dick Arentz's home in Flagstaff, to view a large number of his Platinum prints in 12 x 20, including some stunning verticals....it was quite a wonderful and most humbling experience...yes indeed 12 x 20 should belong in the ULF classification...

    I'm not a user yet, as my planned 16X20 camera with a 14X17 reducing back is still in the CAD stage at an industrial designer's studio. I do, however, have about $3000 worth of FP4 and T Max 400 in those sizes sitting in the freezer.

    I am pumping iron in the meantime to prepare for the camera's birth (and using my 8X10).

    I have a Rusky 30x40 but it only weighs in at 23 pounds. I thought we had the same camera but maybe they are different. I'de like to see some pics of the one you have. Mine is clunky but it is mahogany and has huge leather bellows on it. The plate holders add a bit of weight. The availability of film is poor but I have a few hundred sheets of Russian Pan film along with some Agfa Aviphot 200 and I even have some color Fuji NPL in 30x40 size.

    Thought I would put up some info on my web site on my 20x24 "hobo" style camera.
    Here's the link:
    http://www.jamieyoungphoto.com/Homem...meras%201.html

    I just have to clean up a few details, and will be ready to go. It's pretty rough looking, but should work fine. I'm planning on using a 8x10 protar 5, and a 270 WA G Claron to start. Both make round images on this format.

    Thanks Jaime,

    That should generate some interest!

    Jaime,

    How big, square, is the focusing bellows? That is quite clever...and is there a locking device on the bellows?
