    I got a new toy, 7"x17"

    I just picked this up on eBay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWN%3AIT&rd=1

    It's the 7x17 adapter back for a Canham 8x10 with 1 holder and a focusing hood. It looks pretty darn nice, mint condition. 36-inch bellows draw. I'm looking forward to moving up into ULF. I ordered some 7x17 film (EFKE PL100) from JandC today, too.

    The Canham 8x10 is amazing. With this camera I can now shoot: 4x5, 5x7, 4x10, 8x10, 7x17.

    If anyone has any 7x17 images in your gallery, please let me know.

    -Mike

    I forgot to mention that the holder is an AWB! The back retails for $3500 and the holder $450, so I basically got the package in mint condition for under 50%. I was amazed that I got it. I thought for sure I'd sniped at the last second, the other bidder was only about $110 below my max bid.

    I'm selling a lens for my SL66 that should get back what I paid for this item.

    Very nice. You can give scootermm a run for his money now.

    I assume and hope you already have the Canham 8x10 as the auction item states:

    NOTE: Some photos show the camera front and body. These are not included. This auction is ONLY for 7x17 back and rear standard.

    Kerik has plenty of 7x17's on his website. Don't remember the URL, but it's worth finding it out. They're awesome.

    Congrats, BTW!

    Scootermm has some in this here APUG gallery

    I don't know why I am telling you this. I am so envious it hurts. 717 is my dream format. Plenty big enough to contact, intimate enough to hold in your hand. Ahhh well, I'll win the lottery someday.

    Mike,

    Congrats on the new setup. I used 7x17 almost exclusively from 1992 - 2000 and loved it. I don't use it much anymore, though - mostly 14x17 and 12x20 now.

    Clay Harmon is another APUGGER who does some great work with 7x17. He also has a Canham. I know he's been working on a website, but I don't think it's live yet.

    Have fun with it!

    ps Norm, thanks for the kind words.
