    Excellent choice. It should leave nothing to be desired for most things. I have a "reverse" C, with the P standard up front instead of in the rear, but more often than not, I use it in an F-1 configuration. IMHO, F-1's are the best bang for the buck in a large format camera on the used market, given today's prices. I don't understand how SINAR sells a single view camera now.

    Somewhere, I have an undrilled lens board for a Sinar - Not something I'm likely to ever use....

    Do you get any film holders & film with the kit ?

    Shagg, cut some paper up for practice negatives. Not only are they great fun to shoot, you will get to know the cameras quirks at the same time for super cheap.
