    Yes, it's 1.3 mega pixels and costs 8 billion dollars, but I could make one for you for half that.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

One for $360-, one for over $1500- I should have bid on the less expensive one...20x24...sounds great! I've been thinking of converting my Century studio 11x14 to 20x24 for awhile now. Let me know how you like the format.Emile/www.deleon-ulf.com
    320mm Protar V will cover, but very soft corners. Same thing with 450mm Nikkor-M, but slightly better performance on the corners. 600mm Fujinon-C covers just a tad better than the 450mm Nikkor-M.

    If you don't need wide angle coverage many/most of the process lenses over about 30" will give very good performance. I have a 30" Red Dot Artar that just dazzles on this format, all over the field, and is close to *normal* focal length. But for contact printing any of the process lenses over 30" should give outstanding results.

    If you do need wide angle, the best bet would be 16.5" and 19" Dagors, or for that matter any of the old symmetrical lenses of these focal lengths.

    I bought the 30" Red Dot Artar in barrel and had S.K. Grimes install it in a Copal #3.

    The 30" RDA is a great lens, not only for 20X24", but also for smaller ULF formats such as 12X20, 8X20 and 7X17, assuming you have enough bellows draw.

    In terms of size, the 30" RDA is just slightly larger than the 600mm Fujinon-C.

    You will probably want to bracket a couple of stops over and under by half stops just to be sure that you got the shot
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    YOu think I should do double exposure of each bracket in case I ruin the negative?

    In my opinion it is very cost effective to put a 30" Red Dot Artar in Copal #3 because 1) it is a great lens, and 2) there is nothing similar new that one could buy at anywhere near the price of the lens+shutter+mounting.

    Total cost for me was $250 for the lens, $400 for the shutter and $250 for mounting. At $900 I consider it a great bargain and would bet that I could sell this lens today for way way more than I have in it.
