  1. Re: Getting back into 8x10, would a cheap Intrepid Satisfy?

    All used equipment comes with a risk, and if you need to pay in order to address any unexpected problem, that money is not recoupable when you resell.

    All new equipment will lose in value when you...

    It is a good point. It may, although I haven't experienced it.

    Agree. The 1/15 F16 at 125ISO off a gray card in direct sunshine is wrong.

    No need to do test shots. You know sunny 16 so you know the L-478 is way off.
