I might be going slightly off topic here but I've had my Ritter 8x10 for about a year now and for the wide landscapes I like to take, I haven't found another 8x10 folder that comes close to giving me the same degree of flexibility. With a 90mm lens covering 4x10 panoramas, this camera allows the lens to be centred in either the upper or lower half of the GG, with some serious base tilt to keep the rails out of the frame. It lives with it's wide angle bellows attached and its base rails configured for wide angle work, and can still be folded and put into a pack with no problems. If I wanted to use a longer lens I can go up to 300mm without having to rejig everything.

It's not perfect - lacking some of the engineering refinement of other cameras and it does throw up some problems when using it to the extreme but I chose it for a specific purpose that other cameras would, I suspect struggle with.
