    I've been thinking about purchasing a kit. But, not so sure. Do you have any experience with these?

    Do you use one? Why? Why not?

    Any warnings?

    Thanks

    Scroll down the LF area a bit and read the thread on "Bender Camera Kits," and jump in the discussion.

    At $299.50 the Bender kit has an attractive price.I've never used one myself,but I've seen one.The camera was very attractive and the owner quite proud of it.He told me assembly of the unit wasn't hard but was time consuming.If woodworking is easy for you and you have the time I say go for it.If you are undecided then look at the kit offerrings at Calumet Photographic,Badgergraphics,and B & H photo......
