Super-duper wide angle, Seneca Improved View 8×10

Ok, so I wanted to play with the new finish schedule on the lensboards.  Grabbed one of the three blanks, and on a whim, drilled it to fit my 121/8 Super Angulon, which, in 35mm-speak, is around a 21mm lens on this format.  Mounted the lens and covered the camera with a blanket.  Astoundingly, it covers 8×10.  Not only are the corners lit, but there’s good, sharp detail there as well.

Now, I doubt there’s much/any room for movements, but talk about a wide angle on 8×10!
