    Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    Yes I realise the S models were being discussed. I'm also aware of the other differences you mention. I just found the statement that the 6x9 version is "better" than the 4x5 to be odd, and really...

    Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    How, exactly? Apart from scale the two are of virtually identical design, the main difference being that the 6x9 has more limited movement capabilities. If you mean in terms of weight then the 4x5 is...

    I've just received a box of the new E100 myself. Haven't had a chance to shoot any yet, but it will be interesting to see how it compares to 100F.

    Re: Seeking a newer 4x5 camera for mostly landscape

    I simply remove the bellows when packing the camera away. It literally takes seconds to attach or detach them, and they can be safely stored separately in a Novoflex wrap or similar.

    Many thanks for the kind words. The original just wasn't quite working for me once I got it on the lightbox, but happily I found the monochrome version to have better balance.
