    How lucky can one get? ;-)

    Well, I love ebay, I really do (sometimes at least).

    And so it came about, that I found myself bidding on "A BIG SIZE WOODEN CAMERA". The price of 300$ sounded fair, considering the listing included two holders and a 24cm Voigtlander Heliar. I was hoping it being the sibling to the Watson&Sons 8x10 which I had gotten a few months before from the same seller.

    Well, the camera arrived today. Looked a little on the large side inside all that bubblewrap. Then came the shocker - the sucker isn't a Watson&Sons, nor is it a 8x10 either. CRAP!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

    Turns out, it is an 10x12 Gandolfi (acording to the label). Now what should I do? Leaving a negative feedback to the seller for misrepresenting the item.? How good can a 300$ Gandolfi be for crying out loud? Gotta have to leave now, need a drink ...

    Chris (PS: someone having 10x12 film for sale by chance?)

    EDIT: Jeepers, there's another thread with the same name and about another Gandofli too. And I didn't notice it. Where do I have left my mind?

    So there are two of them!?

    10x12" is a nice format. My favorite print size is 9.5x12", so naturally I have a camera in that format. 10x12" is almost as nice (just a little bit too square)!

    Sounds like you got a good deal! A 12x10 Gandolfi went for just under £1000 a few days ago in the UK. Ilford make film of that size as a special order - I was quoted about £95 per box if I remember correctly. It may be easier to find 14x11 film and cut it to size...
