    That seems a bit of a contradictory statement. I assume that it wasn't suitable for you rather than an actual problem with the camera.

    EDIT: In re-reading your post, I now know what you mean!

Also, I found the thing clunky and awkward to handle. The devil is in the details on these things - a big part of how comfortable it is to hold one of these to your face is determined by the exact profile of the back, and this varies from one shop to another.

    A 4x5 Crown is bigger and heavier, and I don't find that especially comfortable to work with either, though I'm finding that a 3.25x4.25 Crown that I had fixed up recently is enough smaller and lighter to make a real difference. IMO all of these are on the edge of what is practical for hand-held use, and because there's such a large element of personal taste involved, it's hard to give general advice or to know where the line between practical and impractical will fall for you.

    FWIW, another shop that does these is Alpenhause.
    If a 3 1/4
    crown or Speed fits you, you can get film from Freestyle, and sheet film holders on e-bay

    Hi Guys...I am still going strong, although a little swamped.. I really try to answer EVERY message, but sometimes they simply go astray.. Thanks to Eudora!
    I think the 4x5 Razzle rangefinder is an amazing device, as there's no other LF point an' shoot that can produce a 50 inch print like this in a single click.. http://homepages.ihug.com.au/~razzle/
