    And the front. Looks like a 6 3/4 " lensboard.

    Hey Brian, Looks like a sweet deal. The lens board (if it is 6 3/4 in.) may required the services of a carpenter. Could be made out of 5/32 baltic birch plywood. Fairly simple actually. Good luck.

    That thing scares me to death! Now I know how the 35mm people look at the 4x5 camera! Holy COW! I'll try that when I feel I have outgrown the 4x5. I will be anticipating seeing the great work you will do with it!! Frank

    C'mon Frank, it's not THAT big. Biggest camera I ever played with was big enogh to hide behind. Clydesdale Process Camera. Of course I only saw it moved once when we migrated to a new building. Also when I would shoot portraits with it the subject always had a terrible squint due to the 4000 watts of halogen lighting.

    Frank,
    It is interesting to me how my view of camera format changes. When I moved from medium format to 4X5 it seemed like a big step. Then from 4X5 to 8X10 the large camera seemed huge. Now the 12X20 makes the 8X10 seem like medium format once did. My 4X5 seems like a toy. What was it that someone said about "the difference between men and boys is the size of their toys"?

    LOL! It was a little different for me. Started with 35mm, then went to 6x7, then 4x5. I knew the second I processed my first 4x5 that I needed something bigger. I think the 8x10 will last a while

    One of my best friends is a woodworker. We&#39;ll be making a few lensboards soon.

    I am still laughing here ..
    Well - I&#39;ll say before some one else does


    .... it is not the size of the camera that counts .... it is what .... (never mind)


    ..... actually I discovered, when I went to 4x5, that size DOES matter. But I am not EVEN ready for negs that don&#39;t fit im my JOBO or my enlarger. Besides, at 20x24prints - the 4x5neg looks pretty good - even with TRI X. And I only print up to 16x20 usually.
