I have a 610mm APO Nikkor for my 14x17 project.......
Tim, innovative idea on the holder. Way to go! I must say that 8x10 and now 11x14 are so easy to handle after setting up the 14x17 a few times. Once you set up a big ULF camera a few times in a row it does get easier. My 8x10 feels like my 645. Light and fast to set up!
I am coming to grips with the size of my 11x14, but I cant imagine what its like to pack your big rig around.
wow - looks super nice and the holder conception is so good
Thanks, I haven't used it a enough to say its all good. But so far its been working out pretty well.
