    Dear Sergio;
    I bought the Shen Hao XPO over six months ago, to compliment my Sinar camera which was used in the studio. Since I bought the XPO the Sinar has gone almost unused as the XPO is so versatile I use it almost every day for 90% of all my work including the studio work where it has almost replaced the Sinar view. I really love the XPO for field work and especially for close up and macro. When I was looking at cameras last year, I narrowed the choice to the Chamonix and the Shen Hao and after using both and seeing the quality and the rigidity of the XPO I bought the XPO and have been extremely happy with my choice. I believe you will too.

    I use one, mainly with a bag bellows, for architectural work. Very rigid and nicely built. No regrets.
