    www.chamonixviewcamera.com got a face lift

    The new website looks quite good, visually more impactful and loads better on my phone. Very nice work!

    Note the warning on www.chamonixviewcamera.com.
    Apparently there is a usurper of Chamonix.


    Important Notice: The eBay store that sells Chamonix cameras is run by a local dealer in Beijing, China, who is not authorized by the Chamonix View Camera Company to sell its products overseas.

    Interesting that a wet plate holder is considered a best seller.

    I own their 11x14. Very nice...getting use to it.

    I'd love a 5x7 based on their horizontal-only model if they made it able to go vertical also. Actually I'd like a mix of Chamonix and the non-folding 5x7 by Shen Hao, which is also hotizontal only.

    I am using a 5x7 Eastman View No.2, and except for its lack of front movements, I like the ease of use of a non-folding camera.

    Curious why they can't stop this from happening.

    Probably because Hugo doesn't sell through eBay and people like eBay for the "buyer protection". And the eBay store must have sold quite a lot (based on their 1000+ feedbacks), it's not nice but not illegal.

    Hugo has stated the eBay Chamonix products have no factory warranty.

    I prefer factory support.

    Since when they need authorization to sell anything? I don't think they adhere to any kind of business protocol that we do in the West.
