    I think 1417 is ideal for ulf size and i've always wanted one.

    The price isn't too bad but one just sold a couple weeks ago for 2500 with 2 lotus film holders and a lens. i'de take 2 lotus holders over 4 antique ones any day. These antique film holders are certain to leak and they all probably need to be tuned up. The light traps may also be shot you never know until you get them. Anyway if you can burn 10shts of 14x17 in one shoot then you can afford the price for this.

    Agreed, (IMH and prejudiced opinion)

    You can also shoot 11 x 14- using the 14 x 17 holders and with a mask shoot 2, 7 x 17 s ... this works nice for verticals ....

    I saw that one. Very nice. I'm assuming it's a 7x17.

    The format is sweeping the country! There are now 14 x 17 Wisner cameras in 25 percent of all the counties in Nevada. We could be literally fighting for tripod space in the near future...

    Also on Ebay, it included the bed extension, lens and two Lotus holders. But the selling price actually was $2000. And it's in beautiful condition.

    Don't ask me how I know...

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    Yes, the 8X20 Folmer in the link is a 7X17. Thank goodness.

    Did F&S ever make an 8x20? The fiberq site seems to say "no", but there's always a surprise or two out there.

    I like my Korona 8x20, but it's a tad flimsy. I guess if it was heavier I'd never drag it around the city (sold my car 9 years ago), though.
