I have been asked if I restored the antique camera myself. They looked surprised when I told them that I bought the Tachihara new. They talk about the beautiful Cherry wood and (faux) brass fittings. They want to look under my dark cloth and then ask why everything is upside down, etc. etc. etc. That little 4x5 got more attention than my 8x10 Wehman does.
One more thing about Ken Rockwell. I get a kick out of him but I know some people hate him. Love him or hate him, you would be surprised at how many people got started in large format because of him and his website.
