    Blast from the past! :-)

    Yes, I am. I like view camera so much that I bought 3 4x5 cameras since then :-) So have not shot as much with the 617. Still highly recommended!

    I'd highly recommend one of the DaYi 617 backs (although my first few rolls had light-leaks, I've worked around that).
    The one I have is Graflok for 4x5, it sits back from the regular GG (and has its own GG), there's also a version for 5x7 that fits flush with the normal GG. Then changing to 4x5 is as simple as changing back to the regular GG.

    Definitely isn't as light as a dedicated 617 like a ShenHao, Fuji G(X) or Technorama though, but they're only $500 plus whatever 4x5 you want.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    I am, however, I never use it now.

    I only shoot B&W, so have the 7x17" to use. I much prefer the massive camera to the (relatively) tiny 6x17cm.

    I'm currently weighing up selling the original Shen Hao 617....
