For those with experience with the Canam cameras I would appreciate their thoughts on the 5x7 / 4x5 wood camera and the all metal versions. Also if you have any comments on the 6x17 back it would be appreciated. For those who have used a variety of field cameras please give your opinion on other models. My primary interest is 5x7 with lenses from 72mm xl SA to the 720 Nikkor Tele. I know this covers the full range but this is the spectrum of lenses that I use. I currently have a Shin Hao and like it and will keep it and a Sinar Norma 4x5 with a 5x7 interchange kit. The Sinar is tops but a little bulky and heavy for field use particularly in 5x7. I owned a Linhof master Technika for about 30 years and loved the camera. I also had a Baby Deardorff 4x5 and a very early 5x7 Deardorff. My 8x10 that i've used over thirty five years is a Deardorff. As you can see I like the Deardorff cameras but they're not particularly good for wides. Like a fool I sold the Baby D. and the Techniks a few years ago when i thought there was no need for film again. Wrong, I'm back using film 100% for my art and documentary work and only using digital for my commercial work. Your thoughts are appreciated!
