    you can try:

    Comercial Congo 360/6.8

    it's the same coated tessar type lens in a modern shutter.

    have fun with it.

    It certainly seems that was so. I also asked the same question on another forum and I got this reply from Professor H. Lynn Jones formerly of Calumet.
    Cheers.

    I see that it stops down to f/90 and covers 10x12 format.
    Thanks for the link.

    OK, the camera is interesting. What is even more interesting is Karsh's story about the Churchill photo session. Churchill, being a painter and micromanager, kept telling Karsh how to make the photo. Karsh followed his instructions, until the last shot, when he stepped up to Churchill and took Churchill's cigar out of Churchill's mouth.

    The result was a great photograph of the toughest man of the 20th Century.

    The best equivalent to a 14" Commercial Ektar is a 14" Commercial Ektar. There are a lot of them around and at reasonable prices.

    Apparently Churchill's wife never liked the picture. She felt it made him look tougher and meaner than he really was.
    If I had been present at the creation, I would have given some useful hints for the better arrangement of the Universe.

    Sinar Norma 8x10.

    I have just recently bought my first 8x10 Camera, an old Sinar Norma. The lens that I have for it is a Nikon 240mm f/5.6 Nikkor-W. Perhaps at some time in the future, I will buy a lens of around 360mm/14 inches for portraiture.
    Getting similar lighting quality to Karsh`s portraits would be quite an achievement, any suggestions?
