Now get used to carrying it about!...Love my 8x10 Masterview!! those large negs are a joy to print. I am sure your going to have loads of fun making photos.
There is no going back, it's very adictive.
Here's my new camera.
Korona View Camera
Seebold Invisible Camera Corp
looking up the history of Korona and Seebold I assume it was made 1928-30.
See how nicely it matches the 1940's panelling in our living room?
If it was good enough for Edward Weston...........
Congratulations on the new camera, it will open your eyes to a new World.
My first 8x10 was a Korona View, a great camera, and I see you have the extension rail as well. Good luck! Shawn
I'm very jealous.
I'd thought about moving up from 4x5 recently as I absolutely adore contact prints and just contact printing in general, but I didn't want to have to deal with buying one off shore from ebay and I can't really justify the cost at the moment either. So I just ordered a 90mm for my 4x5 to tide me over :p
I'd still love to use one.
