Universalis demonstration video

We get a great look at the versatility of the Universalis view camera in this demonstration video by Martin Vogt from Arca-Swiss, Int.

The Universalis can be ordered in DSLR, medium format, and 4X5 configurations. Conversion kits are available between the formats and all accessories are modular components as normal within the Arca-Swiss design philosophy.

This camera is our smallest view camera, but works great in studio or on location. It is easily packable for the outdoor photographer.

Video is shared by Eddie NG from YouTube. Thank you Eddie.

Sutro Baths SF Large Format Photography Meetup 6/10/2012

Sutro Baths, San Francisco, Cal, from Robert N. Dennis collection of stereoscopic views

I am meeting the SF Bay area Large Format Photography group for a Meet-up at Sutro Baths on Sunday June 10, 2012.

The Baths
Sutro Baths opened March 14, 1896 with a $1 million pricetag — an extravagant public bathhouse envisioned and developed by the eccentric one-time mayor of San Francisco, Adolph Sutro. After working its way through its many lives (Playland, 1960s ice rink, etc..)— burned down while being demolished on June 26, 1966. In 1980 the Golden Gate National Recreation Area (GGNRA) bought the land for $5,500,000.

Sutro Baths is on the ocean on the far west edge of San Francisco, just north of Ocean Beach and south of Land’s End. It’s immediately north of the legendary Cliff House.

We are meeting in the parking lot at Cliff House at 10:00 AM.

I will have the Arca-Swiss 141 4X5 Field Camera, D4, C1 Cube, and Z1 tripod heads, plus other accessories. If anyone is interested, I will also have the new RL3d 4×5 technical camera for demonstration.

Please contact me if you need more details, otherwise, hope to see you there for a great day of photography!

Kodak Large & Ultra Large Format Special Order Film

Kodak™ Sheet Film

K. B. Canham Cameras, Inc. has announced that they have an agreement on pricing and minimum quantities needed for a range of special order Kodak™ films 5X7, 8X10, 11X14, 7X17, 14X17, 8X20, 12X20, 16X20, and full plate 6.5X8.5.

Film orders will require 100% pre-payment (shipping not included). Once pre-payment is received you will be placed on a list along with everyone else that has ordered the same size and emulsion of Kodak™ film (this will be referred to as a Co-Op). Once enough orders are placed to reach the minimum number of boxes needed, K.B. Canham, Inc. will contact Kodak™ and should receive the film in 6 weeks or less. Once a Co-Op is started, a deadline date will be posted for that group.

You can purchase this Kodak™ film from a dealer or directly from K. B. Canham Cameras, Inc. If you have questions regarding Kodak™ sheet film you can contact a dealer, or direct via phone or mail to K.B. Canham, or you can use this online inquiry (question) form. To find out what is currently started pre-purchases please check the status page. To place a pre-order for a film please fill out this form and send it along with your payment.

Here is a “How to order film” page for help on ordering film.

Each box contains 25 sheets unless otherwise stated. All prices are in US dollars. Once an order has been placed with Kodak™ for a film size your money is not refundable. Prices do not include shipping from K. B. Canham Cameras, Inc. to the purchaser. Shipping cost will not be collected at pre-payment, but charged later when the film has been received and an exact shipping amount can be determined. If you are interested in any Kodak™ emulsions or sheet film sizes not listed please contact them.

K. B. Canham Cameras, Inc. is only supplying sheet film from Kodak™. They will not be supplying any other types of film.
