    No attack intended...I have no control over how someone interperts things. Nuff said.

    Art-

    For a lot of folks, saying that this won't be your last LF camera doesn't imply that you'll own more than one, just that you'll "trade up" to something else. Everyone's familiar with Gear Acquisition Syndrome, a disease which attacks many photographers of all formats. But LF photographers seem to be particularly prone to Magic Bullet Syndrome - the disease that makes one believe one would be a better photographer if one only had some additional movements or bellows capacities at hand. (It's the same reason that LF photographers accumulate lenses...we all want you to think that it's simple GAS, but in reality we're looking for that magic lens that takes only great images.)

    So when you're warned that you aren't buying your last camera, don't worry about ending up with a closet full of cameras. You'll likely end up with more than one in time, but you'll also probably sell some off as you acquire new cameras.

    (This, by the way, is written by someone who has four 4x5s and three 8x10s in his posession at this time, and intends to sell precisely none of them. So take it for what it's worth.)

    In all seriousnes: I think the Canham is the best answer that I could come up with for you. You can even get the DLC45 finished in some interesting colors if that's your thing. But the cameras are engineering marvels, very capable, and cool as all hell even in black.

    Best of luck with your decision.

    Just went down to B&H to pick up some supplies (and I finally bit the bullet and bought a Rotatrim), and then it hit me. How could none of us think of it?

    Now that is erotic David. Especially the disrobing series of pics in the Article.
