  4. Bit of a problem as hand-baggage, though....

    woweee!!! A standard lens for that baby would be about 43 inches, or about
    1100mm!! Any bets on what the aperture of that lens would be fully open? I
    reckon about F11. Stopped down? F128 maybe?
    Wonder how much the ground glass and dark slide weigh, let alone the camera
    itself.

    Well I have a Crumpler 7 Million Dollar Home (among others) and with this
    one I think I will need the 700 Million Dollar Home. ;-)

  8. Thanks for the link. Somehow, I feel even my 1600 x 1200 display will not
    quite do full justice to these images. <G> In fact, I'm not sure if I
    even have a sufficiently large uncluttered are here where I could lay down
    a 20 x 24!

    Hi Mardon,

    sorry for popping up in here but a few folk on ABPO are wondering where/how
    you are, and your photos of foggy Newfoundland are much missed!

    That is very sad. A bit like daVinci or Michelangelo spending their time producing those cheesy pictures of dogs
    playing cards.

    It sez:

    "I use only one lense w/ the camera. Made in Chicago, it is 600 mm, f 11.0."

    Dunno who the manufacturer in Chicago might have been. Schneider make
    them, too:

    Hi Wollyzone,

    Thanks for the interest. I posted a note to ABPO before I left
    explaining that I was giving up my Easynews account to cut costs.
    Teranews was suggested as a free alternative but I've found it
    unreliable. I post occassionaly to text groups (like this one) using
    Google but Google won't accept binary posts. Thanks for letting me
    know my photos are missed.
