Currently shooting with a Wisner technical field camera 4x5 and a Cambo 8x10. Love shooting with them both but the Wisner, my "daily" camera has a few niggles which I find a bit limiting.
I've just got hold of a Polaroid back and while it fits, just, it only just fits and I'm concerned I might put the camera out of focus when I'm trying to slide the back in or worse, damage the camera. Secondly, and more importantly, I like to shoot wide angle lenses. Currently as wide as 90mm but would like to go wider. My Wisner grumbles about 90mm lenses and so there is chance in hell it'll go any wider. I've tried the pointing it down 45 degrees trick with mixed success but it's not something I would like to have to resort to regularly.
I've no plans to get rid of my Wisner. It's compact, easily fits in my bag with some film, a lens etc. without too much thinking about, weighs very little, looks AWESOME(!) so it's a great go-to camera. But I would like a second 4x5 that might fill my Polaroid and wide angle needs. I had a Sinar F2 which really was fantastic but I found just a bit too bulky for someone who solely uses public transport and so it was left on the shelf a bit too much.
So looking for something moderately transportable, which is happy with wide angle lenses and my Polaroid 550 back (it's quite deep), is moderately happy with longer lenses and has a reasonable range of movements. I think that would do me perfectly!
Any recommendations would be great and if you have a camera of this description up for grabs, even better. We should talk!
