    Robert,

    Glad to help. Mine's not in quite the cleaned-up condition as some of the recent posts (and I don't have the add-on front tilt mechanism) so it's a little rough around the edges. It's nice to have the sliding tripod block. Although not essential, it makes it easier to center the weight of the camera at longer extensions. Also, the 6" square lens boards are easy to make out of masonite, if need be, when you want to try out a new lens in an older shutter or in barrel, for example. Nothing fancy, but all in all a relatively light, sturdy, capable camera.
