    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Bill can speak for himself as well

    Just let me say I know Bill, he HAS NOT GOT GAS ,well only mildly, although he knows I lust after his Zenit C

    If you put yourself around you find/spot these cameras, you sell most you keep a few.

    I know. But I only buy, very rarely sell, operable cameras.

    Yesterday and today I saw and handled probably the largest collection of Graphic, Graflex and similar large format cameras [Georx Anschutz, Nettel, Plaubel Makina] in private hands. The pull on the wallet is at least on the same magnitude as handling Hasselblad [or Leica] equipment. I have been pondering which equipment I should use to start LF photography. I think that I have solved my first round quantry by arranging to buy a 4x5 Graphic Pacemaker and a 4x5 Graflex Model D.

    Please see my signature line.

    That was a few months ago Ian, the condition has worsened since then
    Digital photography is like virtual sex........ you never actually touch the real thing..... or get your hands dirty
