I shoot a Canham 10 x 12 for both film based Pt/Pd Gumover work and my wet plate work. I LOVE the format. PM if you want any specific questions answered but the format itself is great, significantly bigger than 8 x 10 but not as monstrous as 11 x 14. At least that's the Goldilocks feel it gives to me......just right
I totally agree with Monty about this format. It also happens to be the largest I can now handle comfortably. Film is readily available in the Ilford yearly run.
When I was 16 I thought my father the stupidest man in the world; when I reached 21, I was astounded by how much he had learned in just 5 years!
