    Sorry...but love does not describe how i feel...

    Arrived today...it is a thing to behold. Six months wait was well worth it. Thanks to those who have answered my questions re heads and lenses...if it weren't for the terrible weather i would be heading out tonight to try it out...

    I am in the mood for this guessing game. It looks like a Gandolfi "Traditional" camera. Yes?

    It just is not the same feeling when you use an DSLR or an SLR.

    correct - its a Gandolfi Traditional 8x10. Its funny one of you mentioned a DSLR as the budget for this camera was originally reserved for a nikon D3. Then i saw the light...as it were...

    Beautiful wood and brass--you undoubtedly made the correct choice. What kind of head have you got on your tripod? It looks like a Gitzo 3-way. Do you like it?

    yes - after quite a lot of posting and opininion hunting i bought a Gitzo 1570m which so far is very goog - to be hoonest the big thing for me is having the ability to be able to put two screws into the base of the camera - i asked the question regarding this issue (fixing the camera to the head) on this forum and it seems people fell into the quick release versus fixed category very quickly. All i know is that after my investment i really don"t want to have the camera anything other than rock solid safe.

    I believe there are a lot of other three way heads available however i liked the look of the gitzo and its movements (for a non geared head) seem very solid and secure.
