OK.....while y'all are glowering about Sandy's new camera (I'm happy for you Sandy!) do you know about the Italian photographer Vittorio Sella? he used pack trains to carry his 20" x 24" (true size in cm) glass plate rig to the summits of the highest mountains in the world..... Holy spotmeter Batman!

His enlarger was a cabin pointed at the sun (reversely, of course). He went outside and mounted the glass plate on the back, and then went inside to print (Camera Inscura).


But is it ALT?
