After reading Briand post about new gear, I thought I'd get the ball rolling about new gear.
I just got,
120mm Fujinon that will cover 8x10 with movements.
300 - 500mm Schneider convertible lens.
5x7 back to suit my 8x10
5 5x7 double dark's
8 8x10 double dark's
I also picked up a complete CAMBO SCX 8x10 camera. I'm going to cut up the back to make it in to a 11x14. I will get a set of bellows made to suit.
Sounds like we have buying fever, good stuff. as a friend always said .( you cant take it with you).
sounds like a big project. all the best
Arrived in the mail today from the good ol' boys at B&H. A brand new 120mm Nikon SW. Unfortunately I forgot to order a lensboard, so I ordered one of those and a lens spanner from Badger Graphics so that the boys at B&H wouldn't know what a dumb arse I was. As soon as the board arrives I get to play. I think a trip to Molonglo Gorge is in order.
