Check out our page, Raven Visionary Arts ( All of my large format nudes were done with an 8x10 Deardorff and either a 10" WF Ektar 0r a 14" Commercial Ektar. I consider the Deardorff a classic.

Dear Guy,

For the past 17 years I have been in the business of restoring Deardorff cameras. I was trained by family members in Chicago. Currently I have rebuilt / restored over 700 Deardorffs of all models. I have posted in Search for "any" & "old" to see my postings and search with my E-mail address K-4SB@MSN.COM. I also write the Deardorff section in McKeowns Price guide. I also have had stories printed in Shutterbug and the Chicago Photographic Historical Society and Photographic Canadas Magazine. Ken Hough Photographic Repair.
