I have 3 large format cameras and my Norma is far and away my favorite. It is sturdy, intuitive, precise, and a joy to work with. Also, because it is modular it can be configured to do just about anything you want it to. It's also pretty. What more could anyone want in a camera? It's not quite as easy to transport as a folding field camera, but it can certainly be carried in a backpack and is not terribly heavy. Did I mention that I like mine a lot?
