    Haaa I did that once... Newton New-Vue and a Tessar. I spent $50 for the lens and $60 for the camera.

    Fair enough. I hope the lens was a good deal

    Let's say that camera was my gateway to 4x5... It was bad enough that I rarely used it over the years and it cemented what I definitely did not want in a 4x5... movements that counteract each other and slip, heavy weight, lack of rangefinder/handheld capability.

    Good enough to take beautiful photographs that revealed to me that 4x5 was what I wanted to shoot.

    Any camera that can tell you that much about yourself is a good bargain...

    Isn't the New-View first on the top ten worst 4x5 list?

    I think so. I of course, voted two or three times to make sure it got a high ranking.

    Oddly, when I joined APUG, I had completely satisfied my cravings by having one of every kind of camera type.

    I knew at that point what I wanted, and already had it.

    On the 4th of July (US Independence Day) I took out the Twin-Lens Reflex for the day... For thoughtful compositions it works well for me, but trying to catch action, without practice, is unnerving. The left-for-right flipped viewfinder image messed me up when I tried to get the guy in the flag outfit... with the raising of the flag in the background. I just couldn't get foreground and background composed.

    Same here... When I joined APUG I only owned my Canon AE-1 and Canon 1V, and a 120 folder from 1910's, and a digital...

    Now... E gads!!! I'm embarrassed to list it... Lol

    But ranges from 127 to 11x14 and every step in between!
