    I might add that my Linhof is the same as the camera used in their advertising...A very rarely seen camera. I think 7X17 Korona's are way more common.

    I like that if it rains, I have cover for myself and my camera.

    As opposed to my Datsun Fairlady Roadster which had no top and when it rained, I would stop, cover the car in a custom cover and stand in the rain until rain stopped. LOL

    It has velcro on 2 complete sides, which works great to surround the bellows and seal the bottom. Nobody told me how well it works or how it works. Not B&H, not here and not eBay.

    Here it is engulfing my 8x10 Linhof.

    This is a great product.

    Know this is an old thread, but Randy do you still use your Harrison darkcloth? If so how do you like it after 4 years? And specifically how did it work on your 717? Just asking because the "perfect" darkcloth is the last piece of the puzzle for my 717.

    Thanks!!!

    I like it fine. I use it on 3 cameras.

    The Deardorff S11, the 7X17 and soon on Seneca 11X14.

    No problems with it at all, but I did read about the tents and will pack it even more loosely in a bigger than stock bag when not using it for expedition.

    Keep it dry and ventilated. Very damp here, far more so than Chicago.

    Thanks, of course now everyone seems to be out of stock on the large.

    Lachlan makes a good point.

    For my 2.... When I was shooting 7x17 I used a focusing hood from the View Camera Store and it worked very well for me. The largest size I see listed is 11x14. But that is probably it as 11x14 and 7x17 are roughly equivalent, size-wise.
