Darren's Great Big Camera

He is using 14×36-inch negatives (for X-rays)! I wonder how big can you he print and what will be the size of scanned computer file.

Well, I've never heard of an enlarger bigger than 11x14 inch, and I've only heard of half a dozen of those.

Who else has tried handling seriously large format? It's evil stuff. Not dinky sizes like 10x8 inch: that's easy. But even 12x15 inch (the biggest I've ever handled) is not just as slippery as wet fish: I'll swear it jumps like live fish too.

And in our séjour there's a portrait of Frances and me on 20x24 inch Polaroid, from the Great Camera of Prague.

Darin is miniature format for sure. Look around the Interweb for a guy who converted a box trailer into a camera. He makes his exposures on color paper. Like 40" wide color paper. The photos are HUGE!

The largest that I know of. Is the 40"x80" polaroid that Joe McNally has used on some of his projects.

Nice camera! Unfortunately most of the pictures taken with it so far aren't very special but interesting camera nonetheless.
