Thanks for the reply, Richard!
Most reassuring. So, the plastic GG does not flex more than a glass one. And - it's unbreakable. Very nice on any field trip.

One thing to be careful with.
When you fold the RR make sure the front standard doesn't contact the inside of the GG, otherwise you'll get clear spots appearing on the GG.
How about Ritters after sale services ?
Have any body here has go through this already ?
Thanks for sharing impressions.
Yes, but you'll need to be patient.
Richard has made a couple of modifications to one of his 8x10 cameras I bought from him and the workmanship has been very good. But being on the opposite side of the planet, sending bits back & forth for repairs or mods inevitably means long periods of 8x10 withdrawal.
Thanks for your comment Frank.
I am starting to think that there would be need more then only patience !
Will make a first essay feed back on this cameras if necessary.
Meanwhile, wish you all dear fellows/colleagues/friends a sweet start for the new year !
Perhaps want to think about Keith Canham's cameras?? Outstanding build and service, though heavier than the RR (don't know by how much).
I am thinking about a Ritter camera. Very light 8x10 is about the same weight as an Ebony 4x5. Service is not too much of an issue for me as I can drive over to his place.
