    Try it. It's cool.

    Or at least it will be if all the people who ought to be posting on it do so, instead of doing it here! It's a bit slow right now, as it is just getting started. But at this point, the more people who participate, the better. It could actually be a much more suitable and useful site than A.P.U.G for half the people who post here regularly (maybe more).

And now they want them to bear with camera movements...
    Are you actually shooting (or planning to shoot) architecture/product for your living?
    - If so, probably that isn't the best combination for high quality results, so I would humbly advise to get a real (film) 4x5 monorail;
    - If not, I can't see the point of adding movements to a dslr. You say you want "more control": but in which area? Using film inherently means "more control" to me. In different areas from those offered by di@#[l, but they do a better control management FOR ME. Still, if you're not faintly suggesting a swith to film, I believe you are in the wrong place..

    Hope it helped a bit -at least to formulate a more precise question-
    I don't see how you think that is more precise, but thanks anyway.

    Thanks for that. I have reposted my question there, and have already received some much more useful comments. Thanks again.

That being said, I never heard of that system before, so thanks for enlightening me!
    Yeah, I did get some more than snarky remarks, as you suggested. I guess some people just have way too much time on their hands. Thanks for the DPUG hookup.

    And as far as the question at hand, the exact differences between the models im not sure about, general as the price goes up with Sinars the movements become more exact and the tils no longer require any refocusing. As for bellows, the bag bellows are usually for wide angle 4x5 lenses and the longer accordion bellows for standard lenses. Super long bellows are for macro use. The high end sinars are all incredible from what ive seen, even the lower end models are fantastic. If you can afford the upper models, you wont regret it. Also while your at it.. get some film holders with it, never know, you might just fall in love.
    Thanks for responding with generosity instead of purist snippiness.

    I don't know if you were referring to me with "purist snippiness".. Anyway, I couldn't find real snippiness in this thread, unless we don't share the same view of what real snippiness/harshness really is.
    I simply found unclear what was your aim. I mean, for what purpose you are considering the arrangement you asked about. I didn't mean that -I- had been more precise. I meant that it would help for you to pose a more precise question. If my syntax or anything distorted the message, please forgive me for being a non-native speaker :-)
