I currently have a cambo nx using a nikor 90 f8, rody 150 f5.6, and nikor 300m lens and have enjoyed it immensely. The camera is just too big and bulky for some of the shooting I would like to do. I would like a field camera for landscape (not as many movements needed) and handheld (no movements) to compliment the monorail. I have been looking around and it seems the Wista VX would fit the bill, at least that is the conclusion I have come to from the reading of camera lit. I don't have the money for a linhof and I don't really know how useful the rangefinder will be, I zone focus handheld a lot with other cameras, so I can't see doing it with a 4x5 to be greatly different. One of the priorities of the camera would be that it can take somewhat of a beating, I will be hiking and camping with it and won't mind it getting scratched, this is another reason I am thinking about a folding design.
I would like to hear from other users of the camera, or of the wista line and find out what you think, also, if anybody else has other recommendations of other cameras (toyos, horsemans ect) that are a bettter fit I am open to hear. Thank you very much.
