    Sweet!!!!!!!!!

    Thought of you the other day - picked up the book "America by the Yard", of Cirkut pics. Wow..! I can see where shooting with such a thing would be addictive.

    Whoops, got OT there. Repeat: Sweet camera!

    Hah! That's just absurd! Resolves cormorants at > 1 kilometer!

    I want one, and a lifetime of free film.

    Amazing!! I have a question, how are you digitizing it? Is there a scanner that covers that size?

    One could use a big color-corrected light table kinda light, and a high-resolution 4x5 scanning back from Betterlight on a 4x5 view camera.

    Dare we discuss DIGITAL SCANNING???

    I use an Epson 1640XL scanner and scan in four sections that are stitched together. File sizes are around 300 MEGs for a slightly bigger than contact print size (18.5 inches by 43 inches) and are printed on an Epson 9800 at 360 DPI. If the print needs to be bigger, I scan at a higher res, sometimes 720 or 800 DPI but then you are getting into GIGs instead of MEGs and I need to upgrade the ol computer or it gets time consuming. The 9800 could make a print 44" by 100" at 360 DPI that would be awesome, but I haven't done that yet.

    Real prints are made the same way I print my cirkut negs with a huge contact printing frame. I have had problems with getting good contact on 16 inch wide film so I am inventing a vacuum frame to suck the negative down.

    Ten inch negs don't need anything special.

    That's just dumb - sorry. Then you'd be better off shooting the original scene with a better light. A scanner would give a far superior result. Many drums can handle CLOSE to that size... though that particular size - i don't know about.

    Please send me a PM if you're apt to pursue this discussion as it is not appropriate chatter for the apug forums.
