    min bellows: 60mm
    front rise: 72mm, front fall: 53mm, front shift: 50mm on each side
    rear swing: 10 degrees on each side
    rear tilt: 30 degrees
    folded size: 355mm x 270mm x 97mm

    I will post some pictures next month in our website when it comes out.

    Re: New Ultra-Light Chamonix 810 Camera

    Just out of curiosity - what is the weight savings that can be achieved by making the camera horizontal only? I have a similar query on the Chamonix H-1 5x7 offering which also does horizontal only. I've been advised to get the 057Fs2 if I want to go 5x7 in portrait position, but that loses the non-folding charm of the H-1 so I balked at the time. I've the same question here for this new 810 product. Who does 8x10 in horizontal positions only? Those who shoot only 4x10?

    Not meaning to trash talk this product (in this day and age, any new film gear is music to the ear), but I am genuinely lost as to "what's the point".
