    Thank you all, always love to learn new things.
    Mike, the Fujinon-W 150mm/5.6 lens comes in Copal #0 shutter, as most regular 150mm LF lenses I'm aware about. The lens is quite small and light - 52mm front size and weights about 250 gr at all.
    BTW, your advise about keeping the holders dust free by vacuuming and storing i ziplock bags is soemthing to consider indeed. Will keep it in my mind, thanks.

    Well that sounds great then. Have you downloaded th Ebony manual page available online? Since Shen Hoa's, don't come with instructions, it can be handy.

    No Mike, I did not. Should I ?
    Is Shen-Hao's operation exactly similar to Ebony 4x5 counterpart ? I wasn't aware about this.
    What is their link ? (ebony.com or ebonycamera.com aren't relevant for them)

    Not an exact manual, but pretty close:

    http://www.ebonycamera.com/media/sv45.users.guide.pdf

    And there is this one which is in Italian, but the pictures are pretty helpful and it is of an actual Shen-Hao and not an Ebony.

    Alex, I will have to find the link. But the instructions are close. One of the tricky things that I noticed at first was in closing you need to push the rear brackets out of the detents. Also, before you shoot, make sure that the bellows is properly attached front and rear, top and bottom. There are sliders that make it easy to change the bellows and its a good idea to check the bellows occasionally to make sure that its seated properly (particularly when its been off).

    That's the one Jeremy. I had seen the Italian as well but I never printed it. I printed the Ebony version and just stuck it in my camera case.

    One thing I advise is to make sure that you get a ground glass protector. When the camera is folded one side of it is the ground glass, it would be very easy to scratch or break it, and almost impossible not to get the stray fingerprint on it without a protector. I bought a mess of anti static ziplock bags from staticbags.com and am using them to strore my holders. If you pm me your address I can send you a few as a camera warming gift.

    Good luck!

    Paul.

    Mike, what kind of vacuum do you use? I have been looking at small electronics vacuums and the like and haven't found something yet, although I am not sure what I am looking for. If anyone else has ideas here, chime in as well. Thanks!
