    Shen Hao 617 Arrived!

    Not sure if I ever introduced myself here. Anyway, I am a confirmed pano-nut. So much so that I have 2 XPan-II: http://www.5pmlight.com/?p=2225

    I just took delivery of a Shen Hao 617. This is my first view camera, and I am having a blast:

    I think the Shen Hao and the XPan make a killer combo!

    Nice. How did you decide on that model Shen-Hao over the others? I've been thinking about getting one myself.

    Very cool. Nice website. I just got an XPan myself and am looking forward to shooting with it. That 6x17 camera looks neat. Does it fold up small?

    Thanks all for the comments.

    @Jeff - the only one available from Badger Graphic at the time was the PTB617 rather than the TC617, and after looking at the spec, I thought the PTB is better: it's lighter and folds up, and only lose some movements that are probably not important. I like pano format a lot so I know I don't want a 4x5 or 5x7 with a 617 back - that's wasting a lot of the camera features that I don't use.

    @Tim, yes it folds up to the size of a hardcover book. Of course you still have the rollfilm holder and the lens....

    Thanks again!

    I'm considering purchasing a Shen-Hao TFC 617-A this weekend. Are you happy with yours after all of these years?
