    I am happy with my Zone 6 and accy bag bellows. $500 is is not.

    For less then Wisner charges for the 4x5 Technical Field I got:

    5x7 Shen Hao
    4x5 back graflock
    bag bellows
    6x12 rollfilm back
    case
    adapter lensboard
    FEDex air delivery

    Even the lower priced Wisner isn't much less then I paid for everything.

    The deal with the Shen Hao isn't just the camera. It's the whole package.

    4 x 5 field Camera

    For the Money: Graphic View 2 by Graflex. Make sure you get the tripod mount and the proper case that will allow camera to be stored upside down with the tripod mount attached. You can back pack this whole outfit on a back pack frame. The case camera and gear will weigh right at 22 pounds with cut film holders, polaroid back, filters, 2 or 3 lenses, and light meter. You can store a full 8 x 10 grey card in it, a darkcloth, etc. A 127 Kodak Ektar and Kodak 203mm Ektar and you will have a nice outfit. Plenty of movements with the 203 . Just enough with the 127 for landscapes straight on. Easy to set up, easy to use the movements. Get one preferable with a Graflok back but a regular spring back will suffice.

    I have a custom Ebony SW45. Very light...only 1.5kg. I use the top hat lensboard extender for my 180mm APO Symmar. The back tilt with this camera is great...in fact I like it better than Ebony's assymetric tilt.

    The back is different, it's like the back extender in the way it extends and tilts. I just push the bottom of the back in for tilts...works extremely well.

    Natively it only extends sufficiently for 150mm lenses. WIth the 37mm top hat lensboard I can use the 180mm. Adding a back extender would add another 90mm of extension.
