I did a Video on my Voigtlander 'AVUS' 9x12cm plate camera I show a glass plate and 120 rollfilm back and an actual darkroom print taken with the 'Skopar 13.5 cms f4.5 lens' -- you can see it here :

Thank you for this video Pete! A true eye-opener for a young enthusiast like me. I almost picked up a Moskva V (Zeiss copy - folding 6x9) for 120 film but they're pretty complicated with limited options for exposure, not to mention costly! Large Format plate photography, though... well that's on a whole 'nother level! I think I'll stick with my SRT. Laugh 1

I'd love to see some images produced from the camera. Is it possible to scan any of the smaller enlargements that you've made?

Thanks for viewing that Video -- well, I had some 6x9 format transparencies taken with it years ago but they all got dumped on the orders of Wife No. 2 with most of my 1970's-80's press negatives -- I have no more to scan at the moment. as my scanner will not fit the larger 9x12 cms negs.

Interesting video. Nice looking camera, too bad about the broken glass.
Thank you for posting this.

No worries!
