Erm...I'm learning the 5x7 camera, I already have a view camera. I wanted a 4x5 with a focal plane shutter to use with lenses that don't have a shutter. I just made a mistake regarding the graphlex camera I ended up with. So...

Fotch: Yup. The reason I'm interested in the Speed is the focal plane shutter. Otherwise I'd like a camera with more movements, and a rotating back. Basically I realized today that the movements available on any of the graphlex cameras are not really useful to me for portraiture if the back is fixed in landscape position. Still want the focal plane shutter. And I forgot that I have a 4x5 spring back that I am going to mount on my 5x7, so basically right now I'm mostly just looking for a beater speed, hopefully with a lens.

Ian: I'm hoping to trade this ex+ condition Crown w/ out a lens for a bargain/user speed with a lens and a working shutter. Make sense? As I said, I'd make up the difference in cash if there seemed to be one.
