There are times and places where my 8x10 just can't get where I want to go. My "next best" is an old 5x7 Speed Graphic which isn't so speedy---the rail the front standard rides upon is out of whack and it takes a time consuming effort to jiggle the thing back in to close 'er up. This isn't a good thing since part of the attraction for me for shooting handheld 5x7 is speed---no tripod to mess with.
This has me thinking about 5x7 Linhofs. I know they're heavy---much heavier than my Speeder---but I find the ability to focus using cammed lenses quite attractive(they are cammed on the 5x7, right??)
What do you 5x7 Linhoffers think abouth your cameras? Which models(used of course) should I look for and what are the ball park prices for good examples?
An alternative would be a Crown Special, but I'd prefer working with a 5x7.
