    Now these guys know how to build a camera

    http://www.rtpnet.org/robroy/lawrence/mammoth.html

    This is a great camera. I'm wondering if I can get the wife to let me buy one?

    Has anyone seen the picture from this behemoth?

    I wonder if it folds up for backpacking.

    I have a coffee table book, about 20 years old, called "The Americas". Has photos like Curtis and other western photographers. There's a good image of that same photo above inside it. I now know, what he was taking a photo of! After all these years. There' s a photo inside, I remember well also, a guy about a foot from the edge of a cliff and looking behind the ground glass of an 8x10.

    What strikes me as fascinating about those photos, is the post processing of the plates out in the field. Now that is insane!

    It is possibile that they used a dry plate for this camera which would have made the whole process slightly less cumbersome.

    And we think our teensy 12X20's are something. Hah! There were giants in the earth in those days. Now when is that lens going to show up on Ebay. Hope they list it in the automotive section and I'm the only one that finds it
