    Re: Hello from Australia

    I haven't used the 8x10" much (well, I only really started in earnest this year with it, and then along came the plague lockdowns!!) - I'm used to my solid and precise Wista 4x5, so the wobbliness...

    Re: Intrepid - Communication & Delivery

    Just to be a positive counterpoint: I have a 4x5" mk1 and an 8x10" mk1 and they're both 'fine'! Not exactly my Wista, but that's not the point of them - I can make a super picture when my brain and...
