    Some quick shots from today in the studio. Nothing special, just to check setup. F/11 at 1/60 I think?

    Hi Ash,

    I really like the images especially of # 3 which has a great dimesionality and presence. This is hand held?

    Great job. I'm impressed and happy for you that the long wait paid off!

    Now how much does it weigh loaded for shot?

    Yep, handheld

    Still 2kg total weight. Fine in both hands

    A trick I picked up from using my Super Graphic is to rest the camera on a shoulder when shooting.

    I've been able to hold it steady for 1/4 second or so, but I don't mind a little motion blur.

    Sounds like you have a very cooperative wife!! LOL

    I do like the street picture! The lights are rendered nicely OOF as blobs and not glare.

    I saw a pic, I think it was on Dean's site, of Chris resting the Razzle on his shoulder. I guess it's something to consider for slower speeds. I got away with 1/30 handheld, elbows tight to the body in daylight.

    Using my conversion, I found that the right side could rest on my shoulder (which is moved a bit forward because of where I'm holding my hand on the door and focus knob). It's pretty sturdy and I do think there's something to the idea that larger cameras are easier to hand-hold at slower speeds. just my sense.

    Shooting vertically, I found that my left hand would act as a platform for the door, with my elbow braced against my stomach. Also feels very sturdy.

    While large, the cameras don't feel as heavy as it would if Leica carved them out of a solid bar of steel.

    Enjoy the camera Ash, the test shots look really nice! Let us know about your experience with the movements if you got that version!
