    Wow, that camera looks like it was built for that lens. Good luck with it Dale. May it bring you lots of happy times and the good pictures to go with them.

    For the old Century camera, I'm going to mount my brass Anthony lens on that camera. When I use the Arista.edu 100 film I shoot around EI 12, so I'll be OK without a shutter.

    I may consider selling it also.

    Since I have to take the lens off the Shen Hao, I need to come up with a new carrying arangement. That lens is pretty bulky, I need a third bag just for the lens.

    So now I'm looking for a backback that will hold the 8x10 camera, one lens and 2 film holders. I have heard of folks making a cardboard box the size of the folded camera and going to a department store to see if there is any appropriate luggage or book bag that would work.

    The Shen Hao is fantastic. The controls are smooth and it folds up very quickly. It is quite sturdy. I'm glad I did not go with a super lightweight camera. That Fuji lens is turning out to be quite fantastic and much to my liking. Moving to a lightweight 'field' lens is going to be a step backward. Thats a f 5.6 lens; I forgot my darkcloth the other day and realized I was fine without it!

    I have been asked what I was doing at both Target and Wal-Mart when caught slipping 8x10 film holders into cooler bags or cheap over night bags. Even when I explain they don't understand. The Wal-Mart people were happier because I at least bought the bag.

    We actually have two brand new-in box jogger/strollers, gifts for our first child. We never even opened them. So, I'm keeping that option available...
