    How many film holders do you use for ULF?

    I'm building an 11x14 and was thinking about how many film holders I will need. Most people would say as many as one can carry, either in the vehicle or by back pack or hand carry, others would say as many as you can afford.

    With roll film I might have hundreds of frames, with 4x maybe two dozen, with 5x 22, with 8x 14, with 11x ?. I was thinking about 6 sheets but I really don't like spending the time or energy on changing film, especially when I want to photograph. Then 12 sheets seems like a pretty long day with that format. So it comes down to a number that I won't run out on a days shoot.

    This isn't necessarily going to be my primary camera so I am not done at the end of film, I can use another format and keep going.

    How may film holders do you have for Ultra Large Format Photography, do you use them all on an outing? Any ULF info is appreciated. If I could figure out a a Poll I would put up a poll on "How many ULF film holders do you have".

    Thanks all,
    Curt

    12X20 have 2
    8X20 have 4
    7X17 have 4
    5X14 have 6
    11X14 have 8
    14X17 have 5

    14X17 is calling me. Maybe this weekend. Far too little done with that camera.

    11x14"--4
    7x17"--3
    8x10"--14 (but I usually don't carry more than 5 or 6 on a day's outing)

    I think I'll eventually settle on 5 of each for 11x14" and 7x17". I have one more 11x14" holder that needs some repair.

    4x5 about 25
    5x7 about 20
    8x10 about 12
    8x20 4.

    I think I'm going to try for at least 4 holders in this format. I know that with the recently finished 8x20 at the Owens Valley workshop I wish I would have had about 8 holders. There were a lot of images I could have done in 8x20.

    5x7 = 13
    8x10 = 30
    7x17 = 9

    Just returned from a week long trip to Maine. Nothing but photography for 5 solid days. Never used more than 6 7x17 holders in a day (I expose 2 negatives per setup). I'm sure if I had more, I'd have shot more, but I was always aware that I wanted to have a few holders available just in case I ran across a "Moonrise" or something...

    7x17 = 10

    I have not used that many in a day, but at a workshop or a gathering I may not have a place to reload one night or there may be something I would rather do. That might be listen to the people I don't see the rest of the year or in worse case, sleep.
