    If your budget allows a 4x5 Arca F camera is very desirable. You will not out grow it.

    Hi Walter,

    At this point as a member and not a subscriber, I am not sure if you can access this, but there was an older Arca Monorail (Model A???) just posted for sale in the Classifieds. It is not a current Arca Swiss, but it might be a good option and probably a great starter camera. If you can contact the seller, you might get some additional info inculding how small it collapses and the weight. The seller has posted a price of $350 or Best Offer.

    (wave of nostalgia)
    I had one of those about 20 years ago; great little camera and a lot more rugged/heavy than a ShenHao. I suppose it all depends on how far Walter wants to go in search of his landscapes...

    My Arca Swiss I once had (I think this was a an A model, because mine had base tilts, while the B has axial tilts?) was very light and easy to put in a smaller backpack. For being such lightweight (complete with lens it weighed less than my RZII with a 110), it was sturdy and good to handle. Beware of the foam on the standards, which on mine was close to crumbling into oblivion (just).
