Jim-did you get the efke from J&C? Just curious how it works, but thanks for the generous offer. tell me your experiences with it. I'll likely get some soon. I need to work on getting my #10 running better first. I have a historical process show coming up soon, and once I'm set with that I want to get my 10 and 16 going better. I was thinking of getting the 8" but only if it was on a thin base. How's it going with getting the camera running?
