    talking about large formats... I recall about a few years back in my office building at Delta House, there was this photographer with whom we rented a small portion of his studio to store our goods, he has the biggest bada$$ large format caemra I have ever seen!. It was rare as it will ever be...think he mentioned there was like only 2-3 of it. They use that to shoot landscape and to shoot shots that needs that kind of sharpness for super enlargement. The damn lens piece ( like the way they do the old Sinar lens/shutter) the lens itself was like more then a foot diameter. half the studio was the camera. It was mind blowing. But it got hardly used these days for "normal" photography. damn wish I could remember what brand it was. It was old but still used and some of the operators were these old guys who still work with him.

    There were a few of those around. Some went up to a neg size of 50" or so....and you can imagine the size of the bellows and the entire thing!

    Even some of the 'old' photo studios where you go take a portrait standing in front of a floor to ceiling false mountain landsdcape had these cams (of couse smaller than what you described) and the whole she-bang was permanently mounted on a pillar-like moveable base. Their lens-boards essentially was a rotating carries that could take 3 - 4 different focal length lenses.

    If you search, back in the 1800s, there was one so huge ass view cam that it had to be mounted on a platform that looked like it was one or two stories high, and the photographer had to use a tall ladder to focus. At present, the world's largest camera (albiet a pin-hole cam, and not a view-camera) IS an old unused airplane hanger.

    well this one you need a ladder too to get to make the adjustment and all that... the whole bellow was like 15feet tall minimum since it was a warehouse office building.


    It's a pity they moved out...if not I would take a photo of it for memories sake

    A camera THAT large ... would have been sold off to re-coup losses, or passed on to an estate or cvollector. Mabbie do a search? It has to exist somewhere still ... hopefully.

    Any chance you can find out the name of the company?

    If you're really serious, would contacting the oil publications help, since they are the ones likely to know who has a camera that huge.

    miniature is right, the one I saw the glass element alone is 1 foot in diameter. I have not even talked about the whole size of the lens,mechanism..etc. that is like another 4 feet in width. It was also made of solid metal frames... it just blew my mind away. In those days I only have a S70 Sony 3.2mp prosumer heheh.. If I had the D70 back then, I would have shot alot of shots of it. Pity...
