    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.

    Well, the big beast arrived today. Wow - sweet camera. It looks like it may have been used at most a dozen times. There aren't even any scratches on the tripod socket. It IS the Zone VI Ultralight version. Now I need to find a backpack or other carrying case to haul it around with. I think this will work well on my chinese Bogen copy tripod with the 3039 head (or is it 3046?).

    Congrats. I am sure you'll be happy.

    Just curious. With what you paid for that you could have had a very nice (okay probably not quite as clean) Deardorff V8. I've seen some nice Deardorff's going for $1000 recently. What made you go for the Zone VI?

    three major factors - 38" of bellows, more front movements, and lighter weight- this one is the Zone VI Ultralight model, which weighs in at under 10 lbs.

    I measured my V8 at 36" of extension, it only lacks front shift which I can fake with both swings, and weighs in at about 12 pounds. IMHO, I don't think the camera weight is the big factor, the film holders are.
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
