    Out of curiosity, what do you want to do that it can't?

    Maybe he just wants a prettier camera. Maybe one of those Ebony jobs with the titaniam.

    Those do fall well within "pretty" territory...

    Yes it begs the question, are you looking to upsize format, or are you just looking for a better/more expensive/prettier camera. If your looking to upsize, I'd head strait to 8x10, but thats just me. Many really like 5x7 and they have good reasons to. If your looking for a better/more expensive/prettier camera, I like some of the Canham offerings, and had a chance to play with one in Tonopah at Per's workshop. Sweet. My Tach works just fine though, and I would spend money on glass before I changed cameras, but thats just me.

    upgrade?

    Is it size or are you looking for a camera with 'finer' movements? Arca Swiss Discovery? PErhaps?

    The only thing I could wish for with my Shen Hao, would be a longer bellows for 300mm lens use. The rest seems to have held up pretty well in all respects. Curious about other's opinions for improvements, as mine still functions well. tim

    P.S. The Ebony really is a nice camera, but at 5 or 6 times the cost, it should be!
