    It's easier to cut a darkslide than to find an old Deardorff with the sliding masks intact (particularly if you've already got a camera other than a Deardorff). You can buy one pre-cut from Bender for around $20 last I checked.

    Thought I recalled that David, but a look at the website does not show the darkslide...there is a 4x10 panoramic adapter (which I bet is the same thing) for $34.95, but could not find a picture or description of what it is. May just send an email to find out.

    I had Richard Ritter make a wood 4x10 back for my 8x10 Kodak Masterview, bought some Canham holders and now all I have to do is find time to use it. Richard did a great job on the back and I'm itching to use it. I really like that I'll be able to do verticals by rotating the back.

    As so many stated - with a variety of different tools - you can make an 8x10 work as a 4x10 - either with dark slides, new backs or simply composing with the 4x10 in moinds and crop when you print.

    I went the route of getting a dedicated 4x10 camera - a Canham. Here's the deal... the camera is dimensionally very similar to a wood 5x7... yes it's wider but it's not as tall. The weight was virtually the same. In addition Keith's holders are $95 and fiarly readily available. My kit of the camera, 4 lenses and accessories will fit in a backpack that most 4x5/5x7 users would use.

    The key limiter of these dedicated cameras is that doing verticals becomes much more challenging - as you are swinging the hole camera onto it's side. Scarry... but not as scarry as doing that with a 12x20.

    If you see your work with the 1:2.5 ratio - then it is viable.

    I shot 4x10 for the intent of enlarging - however I print many of them on Azo and mount on a 10x16 mat (half of a 16x20) - and they present very nicely even in that small size.

    I hope this helps?

    Here's the page with the picture--

    It's just a darkslide cut into an L-shape. I made mine from a cracked darkslide that I rescued from a friend who was about to use it for mixing plaster or something.

    Great site. Drool, drool.

    Thanks folks for the info. This looks more and more doable.

    Most, perhaps all, of these questions are answered in the Sept issue of View Camera.

    Steve, the View Camera magazine is very difficult to get hold of in some parts of the world. I for one can't just walk into a bookstore and pick it up - I would have to order it specially from abroad.

    The information given in discussions like this is far more valuable to me (and many others) than that which is printed in a magazine which is widely unavailable outside the USA.
