Yes - I kind of have to admit it: I have the gene for collecting. I just got my 5th Gandolfi, and I am totally in love with it. I think it is similat to the one Ole has, bu tI am not totally sure. the latest is a black laquered 5x7 Gandolfi, with a 250mm Heliar and 4 extra front plates. I've been wanting a camera in this size for some time, as I can enlarge 13x18 cm films, but not 8x10. And because I'd like to go out more and use the camera in the nature without breaking my neck (not having a car...) in short, I now have half plate stereo Gandolfi Full plate Gandolfi 5x7 Gandolfi traditional 8x10 Gandolfi Traditional 12x16 huge Gandolfi (I also must admit, that I would like the 4x5 version too...) collector? maybe a collector wannabe, but a happy one.
