Here are some pictures of the 14x17 on the tripod I built for it and the 11x14. It is rock solid and we built a sliding tripod block which made it much easier to mount the 22 lb. camera on the tripod. The great thing about all this is that the camera works! When you build these things you worry about film registration and film planes, etc. We developed the negatives from the shoot and they look great. So after 7 months she is ready to go!
