I have a Horseman L45, I've been toying with the idea of selling it and getting a Chamonix 4x5. My reasons are pretty simple, I don't own a studio so 90% of my shooting is done outdoors. I'd love a smaller camera that I can pack in my bag or go on a hike with, currently I can't do that with my Horseman, for obvious reasons. When I hike I take my Mamiya 645 and 2 lenses.
I'm not a fan of Chinese made products by any means and go out of my way not to buy them. But, I've heard nothing but good things about the Chamonix 4x5's that I'm seriously thinking of picking one up, besides they look sexy. Can a camera be sexy?
Most of my work is landscapes, nudes, portraits and fashion. I don't do that much architecture, but I do when I see something I like. Does the Chamonix 4x5 have enough tilt and shift for architecture photography? I don't do closeups or extreme macho shots so I don't need any insane bellows extension either. And I've never used the Horseman to its full advantage.
Thats being said can anyone think of a reason I should keep my Horseman AND get the Chamonix, or based on my photography styles do you think I will be ok with just the Chamonix?
