    1) A 12x20 camera
    2) 12x20 BTZS Tubes*
    3) Delta 3200 in sheet films, and avaliable during Ilford's ULF runs*

    *Hey! I dont recall saying the wishlist had to be avaliable or commercially viable.

    But seriously, I would like to be comfortable enough in my LF photography skills to justify buying one of those monsters one day. So I guess my real wishlist is

    1) 12x20 camera
    2) The skill to use such a monster
    3) a wife that also wants a behemoth camera

    I think my husband has learned that if he gets me a camera, I might not kill him for getting another old car. You might just need to point out that cameras take up less space (at least individually) than cars. And I'd suggest buying something that sparkles for her prior to buying another camera.


    And my wish list might include an 8x10, but I don't know that I'd use it enough with all the other cameras I have that don't get used enough already.

    What's on your wish list?
    I already own my wish list and it didn't make mea better photographer;just poorer.

    Every lens made for my Canon Elan 7n, a 2nd Elan, and a big chest freezer of film.

    Ralph:

    Having reviewed a fair bit of your model photography, it seems to me that a fair few times all they are wearing is shoes .

    Trust me. Buy an 8x10 and a 14" Commercial Ektar. You will use it!
