Do you own a Fotoman? Fotomans are known for film flatness if you did some reading on it. Making a spacer from fibre board....huh, good luck. Please show a photo of one that you have made, or don't you own one of these cameras, and it is all talk? You really don't know what you are talking about. Why would I make one when they are only $25 for a 10mm spacer. Some spacers can be up to 45mm....now how is 45mm of fibre board going to look at the base of the cone (it is not hidden out of sight).

I shoot wildlife with a Fotoman 617, something I can't do with a Shen Hao. You sure like to talk nonsense.
What rubbish are you talking about at the Fotoman website. The only rubbish I am seeing is coming from you.
