    Hello from France,

    I'm actually looking for specifications of the MPP Mark VIII (weight, movements...) but don't find it on the web (nothing about that on the mppusers website).

    Is there someone here who have idea about that ?

    Thanks

    Not sure about the weight but the additional movement that the MkVIII has over previous models is front forward tilt. Otherwise the movements are the same as the MKVII which is:

    front - backward tilt, rise, shift and swing.

    rear - tilt and swing.

    The lens boards are different to previous models, they have rounded edges, and the back should be a graflock international back.

    nothing on this JasonC or I have view too fast but I think I'll contact a member of the MPPuser cause there's not many informations on the web about what I want. I want to buy one.

    I'm a member of the MPP users club. I'll try and find out the weight for you but the movements are as I described above.

    I've just weighed my MkVII (should be about the same weight as a MkVIII) and with a 150mm Sironar attached it weighs 3.1kg.

    My MkVII is a good camera so a MkVIII should be excellent for most purposes. Good luck!
