    Re: safe haven for tiny formats

    Here's one of the first pictures using my Mamiya 7 and 80mm lens as a scouting camera. I think I should go back with my 4x5:)

    I saw that one too. Have you had any experience with that company? I'm going to sit tight for a while and keep checking the Epson web site to see what shows up.
