    The "F" in the camera's type name stands for "Field"

    And it really is an excellent lightweight field camera, even though not as portable as the folding types, nor as sophisticated as the Sinar P models.

    I have an F1 - I think you'll enjoy your purchase. Using the angle calculators is a good way to learn movements. Large format is a great way to photograph as it forces you to slow down and see the world anew on the ground glass.

    It's hard to go wrong with a Sinar!

    congratulations on your Sinar kit - if you need any small parts you can identify the bits from these Sinar service manuals which you can download

    Nice rig! If there are any issues with the camera such as stiff focussing, etc. don't fret. Just send it to Sinar and they will bring it back up to spec. Earlier this year we had our P2 serviced and, with parts and labor, it only came to a little over $300. You will use this camera until you are 100; rock solid.

    The camera is worth about 400 in good shape, so you got a fair but not great price. It is a good camera. Best of luck with it.
