    Does 10x12 count as ULF? Seriously. I don't know.

    I started, like, four years ago with a Super Speed Graphic. Went to a Seneca Competitor 5x7 I completely rehabbed, kinda arbitrarily settling on the format. Been hooked on fixing old woodies ever since. Got an 8x10 Gundlach a couple years or so ago, summarily sold it for financial reasons. Later regretted that. Bought a Seneca Improved View 8x10, rehabbed it, bought a Seneca View 8x10 (in mahogany and brass), and sold the Improved View. Bought an Asanuma half plate and converted it to 4x5 (recently), but have been dying to finish the Seneca View 8x10. Until a few days ago when a Star Camera Company 10x12 showed up on LFf. Was second in line for it; the first sale fell through today. Now it's mine. It's shipping tomorrow. Woot!

    [EDIT] I totally forgot my foray into 5x12 in the middle there - converted a 6.5x12 Indian plate camera. That was a fun experiment!

    In my book, 10x12 definitely counts as ULF. As I see it, a format with an image area greater than 8x10 is ULF. But of course there's more than one way of looking at this, as some consider 5x12 ULF since one dimension is greater than 8x10, etc. etc.

    I will be looking forward to your rehab of the 10x12 as I'm sure it will end up looking very nice!

    Curse you all. I used to think that 5x4 was big, then I got an 8x10....apparently that's a bit miniature as well! Where does it end?

    After the 8x10, the 4x5 looks small. After the 8x20, the 8x10 will look small. The 20x24 folks probably consider 8x10 as miniature format.

    I have to agree. started with 4x5 and then thought it was too small and that 8x10 was big enough. Then the 8x20 came along and I was commenting on the weekend about how small 8x10 looks. Now a 16x20 is being planned, but I sometimes wonder whether to just take the step up to 20x24 instead.

    Agreed, save time and money. I'm actually planing my 14x36 Pano right now.

    I'm still grooving on my whole plate - it's such a nice size. Small enough to be light and portable, big enough to be easy to view. And then there's the 14x17. Almost exactly 4 times the size. Ended up getting a studio mono stand for it to make life easier in the studio. Can't wait to shoot with it again.

    I thought I'd add a picture of MY boys. The 8x20 was first, then the 11x14 and then the 14x17. These are all hand built by yours truly out of some fine Walnut I've had for years. I don't think there are any more cameras on the horizon but one never knows!
