    I prefer my dedicated 6x17 camera, a major disadvantage of the extension backs is you can't use shorter focal length lenses and I now only use a 75mm on my Gaoersi 717.

    As I've just finished restoring a British half plate camera I may make a 6x17 back for it, the advantage is the camera is lighter than all my 5x4's and it wouldn't need ant additional extension. I'll be tapping Steve's brains I think as he's nearly completed a 6x12 camera

    It's complete enough to run a film through but I still need to get the shutter fixed. It works but one of the shutter blades fell out. I keep finding other things to spend my money on... like bills and food.
