    Buy it quick will you Brad! It's been tempting me something awful! Hell, want me to lend you a few bucks? It would save me in the long run!

    Me too. I could carry it around in my Roll Royce, time shots with my Patek Philippe watch while sipping Dom P. out of a Waterford crystal glass!

    I had briefly used an older ARCA F with the 171mm lensboards. It was a little big for field work, but otherwise almost perfect. So I was looking at the “field” model 4x5 with the 100mm lensboards when ARCA introduced the new 141mm lensboard model. I think it’s perfect. Collapsed onto one 15cm rail, it packs as small as most field cameras, and has all movements for studio work. Bellows are easily changed, and it will take a 450mm Nikon M with the regular bellows. The modular design has so many benefits.

    Art,
    it really all depends on your intended use for the camera: for studio work and architectural stuff I would go with the ARCA (geared movements are a big bonus); for hiking and backbacking stuff it's the CANHAM. I don't like the Sinar F2's; when I went to college, the media department had just gotten a whole batch of these cameras for their students to replace old and battered Linhofs (some 25years old), and these abusive kids are a good testing ground. Well, let's just say, I honestly don't believe that these cameras will still be around in 10 years from now (too much breakage).

    BTW, I have a DLC45, bought from Badger many years ago - works great, BUT if you want to use anything shorter than a 90mm, you would have to get a bag bellows as well, or at least a recessed lens board. Yes they say that the camera can use shorter lenses with it's regular bellows, however, you would have to compress the bellows very tightly, and that puts enough pressure on the standards to potenitally cause unintended moves (most of the movements are by friction only). Other than that, it's a fine camera.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    A super expensive brightly colored 4x5 camera will always make sharper, cleaner, better contrast and even toned negatives than a plain old black or wood stained camera. Even at f wide open! :-) My vote is for the 5x7 B&J then spend the mega bucks with J. Galli for a super good batch of lenses! Charlie........

    You could get a Tachi and paint it yellow to match your Hassy ;-)

    No worries. It doesn't meet the 'appeals to me' test!

    Now there's a Cambo PC Master 4 x 5 View Camera for sale at a cheap price of $540. How's that camera? Why is it so cheap? What's wrong with it? Does it meet the technical specs? If you guys say it's a good first camera, that camera will be sold tonight.
