    Just too weird to pass up: A "hand held" 11x14 camera!!!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...sPageName=WDVW

    This struck me as just too weird (and comical) not to share. A hand held 11x14 camera? LOL! Is this a burst of photographic enthusiasm gone horribly wrong?

    A perfect match for someone who already has a Gowlandflex 8x10 TLR, I'm sure.

    Hey, I've made a mount so that I can use my 8x10" Gowland PocketView on a pistol grip with a 120mm lens. It's kind of in between a Hobo and a Sinar Handy. It has two focus positions--8 ft. and infinity. I just need to figure out a viewfinder for it.

    Put a .8mm pinhole on that puppy and you have a great big, heavy, pinhole camera.
    Based on calcs at mrpinhole.com

    .8mm pinhole at 14.25" focal length gives an image circle of 27".
    fstop is ~452
    angle of view about 55degrees.(film dimensions 10.5 x 10.5 = 14.85)
    iso 100 sunny day exposure is 8seconds.

    Isn't it really a 10x10 handheld camera?

    Maybe you could make a rollfilm back for it and shoot 9 1/2" aerial film?
