    A note of clarification though. My 045n does the Scheimpflug too, with both front and rear standards.

    Probably a good choice. I never like the Wisners, which is thy I own Deardorffs. However, the V5 is both larger and more expensive an the F2

    I donít have an N, but with F-2ís asymmetrical rear tilt and markings on ground glass, itís fast and easy. Compose, focus on the dotted line, tilt until everything snaps into focus, lock it down, shoot.

    I know this is an old thread, but I find myself asking the same question! A friend has a Wisner, so I was leaning. that way. Then I read all of the bad press on shoddy business practices on these forums, and on Photo.net, and I started looking again. I have owned a Zone VI (American made) 4x5, and currently own an Intrepid Mk4. That is what opened my mind up to Chamonix. I have been looking for the ease of use with the Intrepid, along with the stability, and flexible movements of the Wisner. So, I believe my hunt is on for a Chamonix F2. As I understand it, the asymmetrical back allows me to do what the Wisner TF back would do?

    Do you know what the "asymetrical back" is and what it allows? Why is it better than the alternative. You don't want my opinion because I don't buy Chinese cameras. I have 4x5 Deardorff Special and Sinar F2's, so that's what I'm going to recommend, or another Zone VI. L

    The asymmetrical back allows an easy peasy application of the Scheimpflug principle. Focus at the tilt axis, which is likely near/at the horizon. Next tilt until everything between the tilt axis and the foreground snap into focus. Done.
