I use a Linhof 6x17 and I just noticed that with the Shen-Hao you can get a
6X12(120) Roll Film Back for 4X5. This means I could sell my 6x17 and have the best of both worlds. A pano camera with swings and tilts.
My only problem is that I want to make sure the quality will be the same or better than what I already have. The 6x17 is a 5x7 cut in thirds I believe,.
How many 6x12 shots can you get per roll? Right now with the 6x17 I can get 4.
I can a) keep the 6x17 and buy a 4x5 or b) sell the 6x17 and buy one heck of a nice kit with the money from the 6x17 including the pano 6x12 back. Does anyone have any examples from this back? Also can you take the back off to focus then put it on? Right now the 6x17 you cannot focis by looking it is a rangefinder so you just get to know your camera.
Again any input would be greatly appreciated.
