Is the 8x10 version available in the USA? I have the 4x5 version and love it.
I just took delivery of my 8x10 Titan, so they are available in North America. I must say the quality of the camera is great, and I am eagerly anticipating using it soon.
Just a note, the camera takes 3/8" tripod post, so you may need to pick up a 1/4 - 3/8" thread adapter, as 1/4" seems more common in NA.
Had a chance to use the camera today, what a joy to use. Its much lighter than my usual kit. Cannot comment about the vibration, as there was very light wind today.
post some images when you can!
Received my Titan 8x10 on Friday. Managed to squeeze 2 shots on DPP into a very busy day today. Tomorrow's busy too, but hope I'll get a chance to develop them. It was quite gusty here. I hung my photo vest over the back of the camera to stabilize - Pentax spot meter and a couple of other things in the pockets. If it was shaky, I'll make sure I have a full water bottle next time. I did consider putting my shoes in the pockets, but the ground was mucky, and I was going straight to a clients house - arriving with muddy feet wouldn't have been professional:whistling:
I'll post if I've got anything to post.....
Unflashed direct positive paper in my new Titan 8x10. You can see it was breezy, but hanging my vest on the camera seems to work fine.
Not worth framing, but a starting point.....
Although I have no proof, to me the tripod mount on the Titan will allow it to flex given the materials use and thickness of the mounting point. Not the camera weight on tripod.
Do you mean that the body itself could flex because it is not sturdy or ridged enough?
Yes at the pivot point. Remember I'm making that assumption based on looking at photos online so could be wrong.
