    Heres a funny thing. I ordered a box of 8x10 film, before I stepped up to the final 11x14 (or 14x14) film size. It arrived via brown truck yesterday. Thought I'd save a buck or two, while getting my development ironed out.

    Ready................. Its tiny.

    Lord help me.

    You seem to forget that 5x7 is pretty comfy right between 4x5 & 8x10.

    I don't know why it isn't the most popular size.

    I have to look at 645 negatives with a reading glass and magnifier these days.

    A little peek at the holder

    Here are a few shots of the cameras back side, and holder.

    My concept was to be able to use any size film up to 14x14, and to make it easy to load, and build. I did not want to have to slide the film in and out. And more importantly, I'm too cheap to spend 300 bucks on a holder. And in a pinch I can bake dozen cookies on the darkslide.

    After a few 8x10 test shots yesterday, I'm going to call it a success. You just fold up the flaps, lay the film down, and fold the flaps back down.

    The septum is a 29ga piece of painted steel, and the little thing holding the film in place is a mask made of magnetic sign material. So if I want to change formats, just change the mask.

    I'm done now.

    Oh, and thanks everybody who kept me inside the lines.
