    8X20 on Ebay, but it's not about the camera,...

    ...it has the first 12X15 Series V protar I've ever seen surfaced. No worries about me bidding, I can only dream. A Series V 12X15 is 12 3/8" 313mm and will cover 20X24. Quite a lens. In the pics it looks like a 12X20, not 8X20 but that just could be distortion.

    It'll be fun to watch. Maybe I'll go to the bank.

    I noticed it this morning. I'd agree about being 12x20 as its dimensions don't look right compared to my Korona 8x20 and the bellows extension he lists is a few inches longer than my camera's. Not sure how you read the lens size. I stared for a few minutes and couldn't read it, and didn't want to get my fever raised by asking what size it was.

    By the by, since we're talking spoilers here, it's not ULF but there's also a complete 5x7 Elwood enlarger with 5x7 film tray going for almost nothing but pick-up in Erie, PA. If I didn't already have one I might have considered swinging out that way on a photo trip. They don't go for much because of their weight and age, but this one looks very complete. Be a shame to see it just thrown out.

    I bet you could buy the lot and get enough for the camera alone to pay for the lens.
    art is about managing compromise

    It looks like the 12X20 that I had. However mine had a BandJ back installed and mine had been modified for 36 inches of bellows draw.
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    It's the earliest Banquet I've seen. Never seen the Seebold Invisible Camera Corp. brass tag before. Whoever dreamed up that name needs a place in the inventive name hall of fame.

    Has a bit of a Get Smart feel to it.

    If you decide to pick this up and part it out, I could use the film tray and filter tray. I have the same enlarger complete except for those two parts.

    cheers

    I'm in the same boat, but Erie is a long haul out there for a few parts that I can probably make with some simple tools.
