I guess this is just a rant, but is there anything we can do about all the stupid listings for Holgas and Mamiyas polluting eBay's 8x10 or larger format camera category? I bet there are only 30 bonafide listings out of 200+. If I had the time I'd bid $100000 on each of them just to ruin their day but life is short.
I guess I am succumbing to film again, for no practical reason... all those heavy metal studio cameras are just so damn cheap nowadays -- heck you get an 8x10 Sinar P for less than a rickety old wooden claptrap... big beautiful 1980s Symmars are cheaper than tiny field lenses, and gear driven Gitzo Giants are almost free. I'll probably be the guy out with the 80lb load, never more than 100 feet from the car, but I will sure have one rock solid stable contraption for less than a grand.
Then I can tape 8x10 chromes to my windows because there isn't much else you can do with them!
