    For anybody interested, here's what the White Maple or "Blond" version of the Chamonix looks like.

    Two more views:

    Note the way the back attaches, very clean and clever (and yes, it is graflock compatible):



    Here's a look at the lensboard retainers, simple and neat:

    Jack is infatuated with a sexy new blonde!

    So that is why he is selling all of his other equipment. Affairs are expensive, in more ways than one. I wonder if his wife knows?

    (In 1998 my wife asked about my 2 new Mamiya 7 II bodies and 3 lenses: "Was it less than $1,000?" I said no, and we left it at that.

    Two years later we were getting on an airplane and the stewardess wanted me to check my camera bag. I said "There is $7,000 worth of camera equipment in there ...." Oops, in front of the wife, never lived that one down! Big mistake. )

    Have fun Jack!

    Best,
    Michael

    What are the two thumbwheels on the bottom of the back for?
    The only trouble with doin' nothing is you can't tell when you get caught up

    That's how the graflock backs lock down -- same style lock as the lensboard

    Linhof Technika (Wista) style. (Which I already have about a dozen spares in, which is why I'm selling some )
