    New from MN

    Hello from MN!

    I have recently came back to large format after swearing it off years ago. My first camera was a Cambo monorail, and I hated it. In fact, I hated everything about it! I sold the camera and swore off large format for ever.

    Over the last 6 years I gained much more knowledge of film, processing, and photography in general. Well, I am back shooting 4x5 and loving it! I have been having so much fun shooting large format and learning more everyday. I think the fact that I am using a field camera has helped me out so much!

    Soon my Chamonix 45H-1 should arrive and I am super excited!

    This forum has been a blessing for me, and I have gained so much information so thank you.

    I also shoot a lot of 35mm and Medium Format, but LF has taken my heart lately!

    Matts,

    Welcome back to LF.

    My Cambo 4x5 monorail was only LF camera for decades. Loved it. I've never used a field camera.

    Hope you enjoy the Chamonix. It's a beautiful piece of equipment.

    I started with a Cambo monorail and have ended up with a Chamonix 045n. World of difference.

    I recently got a Chamonix 45N-2 and I love it. Easy to use. Simple. Light.

    And welcome back!

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Glad to know there is a lot of love for the Chamonix! I had such a positive experience dealing with the company I knew it was my best option.

    What are you finding around Rosemount to shoot? Pretty flat farmland around there.
