    Jeff, there is a Tachihara in so called pristine condition on Ebay right now with no bids and about a day and a half left at $500.00. You can expect to spend about $700.00 for a nice field camera along the lines of a Tachi or Shen Hao which are at the low end of the price range.

    The Tachihara is a nice extremely light weight wooden camera with a very bright fresnel screen. A Shen Hao is a slightly heavier but more stable wooden camera without the extremely bright fresnel. As far as which to buy it's a bit of a toss up.

    Most likely whatever you buy as a first camera you will later sell and buy what you really want. The important thing is to go out and shoot so you learn what works for you.

    +1 votes for the field camera from a keen hiker and LFer!
    "He took to writing poetry and visiting the elves: and though many shook their heads and touched their foreheads and said 'Poor old Baggins!' and though few believed any of his tales, he remained very happy till the end of his days, and those were extraordinarily long "- JRR Tolkien, ' The Hobbit '.
