    That's a perfectly viable camera. I have that same camera with the 4x5 back on it. They're rugged, fairly full-featured. They've got massive bellows draw so you can even use some long lenses with them without sacrificing close-focus capacity. Only downside is they won't focus anything wider than about a 120mm lens at infinity without a recessed lensboard.

    Thanks for that - are recessed lens boards a straight forward thing to come by?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Not really. They're a bit unusual. You can make one pretty simply out of plywood if you're even modestly handy. Alternately, I happen to have one, undrilled, that I'm willing to part with. PM me for details.

    Thanks for that - I am starting to think that this model may not be that suitable in the UK,

    But thanks anyway
