    Sorry, that should have read, "So far as I know Mr. He does not speak or read English,"

    His Chinese, so far as I am able to ascertain, is excellent.

    OK, say a person wants to buy a Chamonix camera, how is it done and are the holders specific to the Chamonix cameras?

    OK, ways I know to try to buy a camera.

    1. You could go to China. That worked for me.

    2. You could try to contact He Chong Yue by email to see if Chamonix will sell direct to the customer as does Shen-Hao.

    3. You could place your order through Hugo Zhang.

    About the holders, no,they are not specific to Chamonix cameras. They are built to the same specifications as AWB.

    That depends on the specific holder size. For 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 Chamonix cameras, the subject of this thread, compatible holders will be Lotus, Chamonix and Fotoman. Chamonix holders will match all Lotus specifications with the possible exception of outside thickness, which isn't important. On this page

    http://www.filmholders.com/filmho1.html

    AWB says his 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 holders are based on a T-dimension of 0.300-inch. That differs from the Lotus, Chamonix and Fotoman holders which use a T-dimension of 0.260-inch. See item 2 in Hugo's first post above.

    I assumed the question to which I responded was more broadly aimed at Chamonix cameras rather than the whole plate format since the original subject of the thread had already been fairly well redirected before I joined it. As such, my remarks were meant to apply to ULF formats, not to 6.5 X 8.5 format.

    Re: Introducing Chamonix Whole Plate Camera

    I'm glad to see new products in LF (and in film/chemical based photography) announced - here - or anywhere for that matter. If Hugo Zhang can make a buck, good. Better two or three.... Ditto, Steve Simmons, Bob Salomon and anyone else making the photgraphic world go round.

    We need suppliers and manufacturors.

    I'm not sure it's productive to be quibbling when they post announcements for a new product in a forum called "New Products". Thanks to all of them for new LF products!

    Hugo's commercial interests are in our interest and entirely apropriate here as far as I can see. Keep the info coming Hugo.
