Um, sorry. I meant the camera. Nice score, er, borrow. Be gentle with her.

That tripod looks kind of small under that camera.
I have a similar Korona View 8x10. The baseplate is needed, it just wobbled too much otherwise.
Lucked out and found an old TV camera tripod by Manfrotto for a song. Big heavy solid iron monster, works great!
Best of luck with your find, although I recommend ditching the PJ's for any shoots in public...

8x10---great fun! A heavier tripod would be a nice addition. You said your camera is light, but the profile presents a lot of sail area for wind to work it's mischief. Did any holders come with her?

Cool! I had one of these, once upon on a time. Worst (and I mean it) Ebay purchase in history. You know, smashed groundglass in the box, mummified bellows, three huge scratches on the front element of the lens complete with balsam separation. The only thing that was nice was the brass lens flange. Unfortunately, it was my first ebay purchase and it was from overseas, so I didn't know what to do about it. Lesson learnt!
You have done better on all points, except the... uhm... outfit.

I've always liked Koronas and have an 8x20. You'd never believe it would take a sharp picture but it does time after time.
And yes, that tripod is a bit too small.
Good luck, you'll enjoy 8x10.
Three holders. Came with a wooden tri-pod with metal center post as well. As-is, the black tri-pod in the photo attaches more securely. Tri-pod head is rated to about 18 pounds with counterweight springs. Camera is only 10. Seems to have no trouble with the camera in my no leg extension + no wind kitchen test.

I contest that last point.

Here it is with the bigger tripod. The PJs remain the same though.
