    Oh, no, another cardboard box thread...

    A postal truck stopped by this morning. And here comes another cardboard box.
    Inside I found
    1. Chamonix 810c walnut with black metal,
    2. Leather coverfor 045
    3. universal bellow for 045
    4. L board for 810 film holder
    Hugo, I think Hass forgot to put film holders in.

    If you think 045 is beautiful, 810 is much more beautiful than 045.
    It really worth every penny.
    I think everyone has seen the photos of 810, so I won't post it.
    Also it fits lightware 1420 perfectly. with a little spare room for lens.

    Leather cover is really nice, it will stick to the bottom of 045 and wrap it around.
    I haven't try out the universal bellow yet, I will post photos later.
    L board won't fit fidelity holder, I think it will only fit Chamonix holder, which I have to wait till next time.

    Congratulations! Can you tell me, please, how much did you pay for the leather cover and the universal bellows and will it permit an unobstructed use of 65mm lens on flat board or, at least, on 11mm recessed?
    Full with mission!

    Universal bellow with max front rise. using last hole. I don't have a 65mm lens.


    Andrey, I don't know how much is each item. My parents are going to pay everything for me (in Chinese currency) in the summer.

    Thank you very much for your answer and the pictures! Looking on them I think that I'll need a real bag bellows instead.
    Wish you good light!

    I'm jealousy that I don't have a father like yours. Or should I be happy I don't have a son like you?

    I don't know Charmonix, but the leather case is nice.

    I've been Shanghai last month.

    It's really interesting that LF seems to be popular in China. I went to a photo gallery in Taikanglu(?) and have seen very nice prints shot 8x10.

    My sketch there (with Micro Format, Leica MP)

    Nice photos, oh, man, I miss home soooo much. Well, I would rather have my kids interested in photography. When I am too old to shoot 8X10, they can shoot with it, not just sell it off on Ebay.
