    I took my Crown Graphic to Norway a few years ago, to use handheld. I got some satisfying pictures, but never again... I replaced it with a Fuji 6x8 rangefinder for handheld stuff (and a Wista field camera for tripod things). The Wanderlust plastic camera may just get me back to handheld 5x4! I am looking forward to it, and can't think of anything wrong with a popular new film camera, really...

    Having never shot LF before, how handholdable do you guys reckon it would it be?
    I've handheld my Bessa L and 21mm Skopar to 1/10 easily, and have done my Mamiya 645AF and 45mm down to 1/30 before I get nervous about wasting blurry shots.
    With those numbers as a rating of 'my stability', do you think I could hold it at 1/50 or 1/100? Faster or Slower?
    Basically, if I'm going to have to use f/16 or even f/8 at the fastest, on a regularly-lit day, I'm wondering if ISO100 would be enough or if I should try stocking up on Provia400F?

    I actually think the 'lack of weight' will be the biggest issue - I have the Harman Titan 5x4" and that thing is lighter than a film holder (or it feels like it) - you would use that handheld, but it does give a sense of how light a camera like this might be - and the 90mm Angulon doesn't really add much weight at all.

    Shooting at 1/50 should be pretty easy--slower if you can brace the camera. It should be comparable to shooting any rangefinder with a wide lens.

    First they steal our Grand Prix, now our lenses.

    Anyone want to send a 65mm SA over to Adelaide?
    Us hoarding lenses? Never!

    I do have a 90 mm Angulon mounted to my Pacemaker Crown Graphic, plus a 90mm Graflex wide mounter onto my home made 6x12....

    Come to think of it, I think I have a Linhof Angulon somewhere too, or did I sell that one

    Oh - and I've never owned a 65mm - so I'm not hoarding one!

    Actually, I suspect we will be able to hack the camera easily enough to mount a 127 or 135mm lens on the camera. A home made extension tube of the right length is easy enough to make, and it will be easy enough to re-calibrate the focussing scale...

    The more I think about it the more I'm tempted to order a second one...................

    That's what i was thinking. the 65mm is set at "hyperfocal", so I was pondering if I put a 75mm Fujinon on it if that would be set almost at infinity (or a few mm each way can be fixed with a drill and some hacking). Initially I've gone for the 65mm, but I'm tempted to get the 90 as well. Hell, $100 used to be what i'd blow on a weekend's drinking back at uni, now i barely go out and I've got a lot more income...

    I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with the Wanderlust, when they realize they either have to pay a lot for development, or do their own.

    p.s. and I love the Chamonix 4x5 F1 I got. I may pick up a "P&S" 4x5 soon, for more night exposure stuff...
    I don't think anyone who buys this should be disappointed for those reasons. Anyone who buys this either already does 4x5 or has been looking into it enough to know that they have to do their own or pay through the nose to send it out.

    I do my own of course, and I'd bet 90%+ of the people who shoot black and white in it will do as well, and probably 1/3 or more of the folks who use it for color.

    Well, it's official, I need to buy the 90mm camera too. Just scored a 65mm SA and 90mm SA, both f/8 Linhof Technika versions, off fleabay last night, €400 shipped together to aus. Might ditch one or the other later on, or hoard them like the Vics...
