    Dear Ole,

    Same here. I've had 11x14 inch; I have 12x15 inch; but I prefer 5x7 inch/ 13x18cm and use 8x10 only for portraits.

    Cheers,

    Robert,

    If you REALLY wanted it, you could get it. Kodak will cut any of their emulsions in any size you want - as long as you're willing to meet their $$$ minimum order requirements. Or, you can buy 9.5" rolls and cut your own to your desired length. Or, you could shoot it in 150 ft. rolls with a motor driven back, like these guys, for rapid bracketing of exposures in rapidly changing light.

    Anything is possible, if yuo have enough money an REALLY want to do it.

    Jim,

    I had the same feeling when finishing my 7x17", it lasted for some months after that and is now levelled at an acceptable amount of interest.

    I'm currently working on the restauration of a full plate camera... the spouse said it was OK after I put 4 days in putting up the fence around our garden last weekend

    Looking forward to see your completed camera!

    Naw. I've only got 9 ULF cameras. It's these darned giant antique lenses that are killing me.....

    I completely agree with Kerry in the sense that it is easier to admit defeat and blame any number of companies for the condition than it is to solve the problem. Fundamental human nature. But at the end of the day the future of ULF is the collective responsibility of the participants. In this regard I am one of the hopelessly addicted that is willing to step up and allocate some of my time to insure that we have B&W sheet film for these cameras for years to come. I am working jointly with J&C toward the goal of stocking TMY in ULF sizes shortly that would eliminate pre-orders and make this emulsion available to many more photographers that prefer to pay as they go.

    Long live B&W in ULF formats!

    Jim,

    11x14 is not much bigger than 8x10. Why don't you build yourself a 14x17 and be done with ULF camera building and we go out burning some big negatives?

    Hugo, now there is a great idea! Bigger is better!

    I'm not blaming anyone. I'm just stating my opinion.

    Fuji used to make Velvia in 11x14. If someone were to throw enough money their way, they'd probably be willing to do it again.
