    Used 8x10 cameras like the Burke and James, older Korona's and the like are around for about $300. You can also sometimes pick up old graphic arts lenses (no shutter, use a hat or lens cap) for under $100. It depends on what you want to do. I started with a cheap 4x5 and progressed up.

    Curious, where will you be moving to and what are the picture potentials? I just bought an old Graphic View because I wanted the Ektar lens. I'll be re-selling it OTC (on the cheap) with an Ilex replacement. 4X5.

    I could just kick myself in the butt. I used to have a westen 4x5 in cherry years ago and sold it for nothing something like 50 bucks with 10 fikm holders cloth and two focusing glasses all packed in a nice hard case. Oh well. I am looking into everyones ideas and if anyone has MORE let me know

    I picked up a Toko (that's right Toko not Toyo) wooden field camera real cheap at a local camera store. The lenses I mainly bought on eBay, again really cheap. I would think a good beginning kit should cost you around $500-$750usd. You could get away with old Graphics etc. but you will end up buying something better sooner or latter and then that money would have been wasted.

    Contact Greywolf, I believe he still has a PrinzDorf 4x5 for sale relatively cheap. He's a good guy and I've seen the camera. It's in good shape.

    jimgalli to answer your question about moving. We have two locations which we are thinking and praying about. The first is the upper Rim of the Grand Canyon Az and the other place is the western part of the state of Wash. So either place is full of great photo op's.

    There is no size to fredonia. Just abandoned buildings.

    Photog--In the park would be great. Jakes Lake two. I lived for two months on the south rim before I owned a camera. the North is much prettier.
