    Hello from the Netherlands

    Hi,

    I'm a passionate photographer living in the Netherlands.
    Since the beginning of this year I picked up the film photography again.
    Some 8 years ago I changed my film equipment for digital stuff, like many did.
    But last year I decided to get back into the original techniques and faced much more fun again.
    At the moment I still have a Mamiya RZ camera set but this one needs to leave the house to make some money free for a decent piece of LF equipment.
    My darkroom is already equipped with an Omega D2 with variable condensors and lenses that can handle 4x5 inch.

    I hope to get and fins advises here about buying equipment and tips and tricks on proper use.
    I want to get a camera like Tachihara or Shen Hao. First of all I like the looks but also these are AFAIK fairly light and easy to take with you.
    Any suggestions, pro's, con's, ect. on my choice?

    Best regards

    Hans

    Welcome, Hans. Another one to check out is Chamonix, http://www.chamonixviewcamera.com/. The Chamonix and Shen Hao are more recent designs than the Tachihara, and they are more rigid and less fiddly.

    Welcome to Large Format Photography Forum
    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
