    Re: Which camera to buy very new to Large format

    The current production run of Chamonix 45N-2 is now, but I don't know if the list is full. I'm on it and am waiting for Hugo's "it's shipped" email.

    edit: Previous to the Chamonix I had a Toyo 45A, which is more limited in movements. For landscapes I never felt the need for more movements.

    My wide is the Fuji 90, which is quite good and is relatively inexpensive according to current eBay prices.

    Thanks for the reply I usually shoot at 16mm with my DSLR again depending on composition 16-20 but Something tells me that I will not need wider than 90mm so there is less corrections I need to make and I plan to take pictures focussing at infinity and try and get consistent results then I will try different compositions with foreground subjects.

    Dwarak, if you are interested in getting a Chamonix in this production run (versus waiting perhaps another 6 months) suggest you email Hugo Zhang at hugoz_2000@yahoo.com immediately. They are doing the run right now. I would email him on your behalf, but I can't tell from your comments whether you are ready to pull the trigger or not. Anyway, the Chamonix folks run a part time operation, and the window may be open for you right now. But check with Hugo, he'll know.

    Thanks for the heads up I would like to wait for some time I am not yet ready for it in maybe 6 months I will be ready. Basically I am waiting for some funds.
