    ...afford a bellows..
    Shoot, MAKE a bellows- Freestyle has the fabric, might cost ya $20
    Your first try might be UGLY- mine is, but it's light tight.
    The next bellows will be better- easier cuz it's not gonna be tapered, for the 7x17 that's maybe half complete [see above].
    And did you see that lens Tracy Storer offered for only $500 !!! Convertible, covers 20x24 !!!

    Try some 8x10 pinhole, it will amaze! And the lenses are amazingly inexpensive....

    The 300 mm Fujinon-C was my first lens for the 8x10. It is a great lens for the format.

    Welcome to the dark side. We have great big beautiful pieces of film!

    I admit it. Sometimes I'm tempted to just back an 8x10 negative with a piece of white paper and frame it. Is that so wrong?

    Does Faith Walrath (and others) know about this line of interesting logic?

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    Faith:

    11x14" HP5+ costs 4.3 cents per square inch;
    4x5" HP5+, on the other hand, costs 4.7 cents per square inch.

    4.7 cents is considerably more than 4.3 cents.

    (Mind you, the best bargain of all may be the arista-II ortho lith film in 20x24" size, which costs a mere $3.79/sheet, or less than a penny per square inch. It's practically wallpaper....)

    Hopefully, somebody will buy the Speed Graphic I have offered for sale and I can recover from the "eBay Ooops!"...and maybe even afford a bellows eventually
    Dude!!!

    Let's get together and I'll let you use the 12 inch commercial ektar I have (already mounted on a Deardorff lensboard). Alviso? Next weekend? (this weekend I have kids). Can also let you see what the 5x7 back does on the dorff. I have a 191 ektar lens for that.

    It's been over 100 deg and cloudless for weeks around here. A little rain sounds delightful. Raining 8x10s sounds even better! Enjoy that 'dorff!

    I was expecting a thread about using our large format cameras in the rain!

    Which I have done with my wooden field camera, praying all the while. Now if only it were raining 8x10s (While I'm safe under a proper roof, of course)
