    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    I’m quite happy with my Chamonix N2 which has a bit more basic movements than the F2. It’s also cheaper and more common used.
    I replaced the ground glass for a plain one off ebay. Kept the fresnel...

  8. Re: Thoughts on the “tailboard” design for 8x10?

    Just to be clear, the camera I’ve seen does fold :
