    Stupid questions here .... as they were designed to work in the moons gravity, would they work on earth or are they very expensive door stops?

    I don't think gravity would affect the operation of the camera, otherwise you would always have to hold the camera level, and you certainly couldn't shoot upside down with the camera over your head.

    On the moon, I suppose, any tripod under 200 Earth pounds is just worthless.

    I'm with David on this one. A Lunar Linhof would be lovely.

    I think that their prime function would in impressing the bejezuz out of your fellow APUGers.

    My question would be, I wonder if all your pictures would have those little reference grid crosses on them, like you see in all the moon photos?

    where is the grid placed, is it on the film plane or some how in the lens? It would seem to me that anything off the film lane would be blurry.

    Must be on the film plane, they are sharp as tacks.

    Interesting--so does it have a glass film carrier? That would be a cool thing.
