having using several LF cameras i bought a shen hao TZ45-IIB as it seemed very portable, versatile and reasonably build, although it seems that it´s ground glass is a tad dark. I haven´t received the camera yet...
1º - is it so dark as people say?
2º - should i buy a expensive replacement? (maxwell boss or ebony?)
3º - Should i buy a cheaper alternative, if so which one (hopf or yanke??)
4º - To frenel or not to fresnel (related to the previous question)?
5º - should i try to make my own with abrasives?
