    That model is not longer available, though there is a VDS 5X7 that is.

    There seems to be no mention of the bellows 'draw' on the 8x10. I am able to mount.... and use.... a 480mm Rodenstock lens on my old and much experienced Burke and James 'woodie'.

    OK... I'm getting older and 'greyer'... and should now be looking for something a little less 'mass' to humph around.

    I know this thread is a little old, but I just got a VDS camera and have found the bellows to be way too thin so that a flashlight put inside it in my darkroom can easily be seen through the cloth. This would not likely show up as obvious flare or light leak on the film, but as slight fog. Anyone else notice this or did I just get a bad one?
