Voigtlander Bergheil 10x15

When medium format isn't big enough: 4x5, 5x7, 9x12, 8x10 and even larger.

Voigtlander Bergheil 10x15

Post by alexvaras » Sat Mar 09, 2019 12:47 am

Hi all,

Recently I won a local auction and for 120$ I got this camera wearing Heliar 18cm f/4,5 plus 4 holders. No carry case and the hangers for the double extension bellows missing.
After I received I went to my friend Ruslan and found a 6x12 roll film holder for 10x15 and a hand-made adapter from 10x15 to 9x12 that fits my actual 9x12 gear.

The camera and others:

12+1.- Let's go!

Test film 9x12 adapter and film, she moved a bit, he didn't (he was really scared!!)

Test with 6x12 roll film holder, right side is out of focus, I think I know why and I will fix it for the next test.

The camera shot with Super Ikonta 531/s (roll test)

Pretty happy with the camera and the lens, still more test to be done to be 100% about accuracy between 10x15 ground glass and 6x12 roll film holder.

Thank you for watching,
Alex

I bought some Fotopan F 10x15 from Poland, expired in 1977, two first shots:
First shot as ASA 32, second as 16, developed together D-76 1+1 10min. at 20 degrees.

I tried the "taco" system with the SP-445 but negatives got stick at some points as you can see.
Next time I will use the AP daylight and the "taco" system with two elastic bands per sheet.

Thank you for looking,
Alex

Same film, same lens, 3 developed at a time with the AP daylight tank, two elastic bands per sheet, marks are thin and barely not shown after scan.

Things are getting better.

Thank you for looking.

I am a complete ignorant of LF, but this B&W looks fantastic.

I like that violin shot.

I used to use the taco method until I got a Paterson Orbital. Seemed to work well enough, and I never had problems with band marks. If you can find an Orbital though, grab it.

Thank you, P C.

I have got the same feedback from rubber bands doing the taco method, no one got marks. It seems this outdated film has, anyway I’m waiting a DIY reel for paterson system 4 for developing 4 sheets of my 10x15. I will write down here how it goes when I try it out.
