  1. Re: Has anyone made a purchase through the Chamonix View Camera Instagram account

    I've used both the Chamonix 5x7 horizontal and the 4x5 for mountain trips.If I worked in 8x10 i'd get the Alpinist If it were me..... i'd sell the Intrepid....but then, i've dragged a Deardorff 8x10...

    John, I've bought 2 Chamonix cameras as well as accessories by directly contacting Hugo Zhang. He's your best connection. hugoz_2000@yahoo.com

    Re: Chamonix 57N + Technika Lens Board

    Robo, I'd sand the board. I have many technica clone boards and they all fit my Chamonix perfectly. It's likely that your board is not to spec? I certainly would not sand your camera, as you most...

  7. Re: Fujinon C 450mm F/12 .5 (or another) to replace Fujinon T 400mm F/8 for Lightweig

    Just to stray back towards the original post. The Fuji 400T weighs 700grams..... the 450 C weight 270 grams. Neither will break your back. 700grams is a pound and a half (ish).... if you need/like...

  24. Re: Which of my 5 LF lenses are worth keeping or worth upgrading?

    You're right Bob..... I meant make a print or have a print made. Not an 8' x3' print made..... but small (8"x10") sectional prints.... BUT portions at high magnification.
