    In a similar, but better design, Look at the Wista SP or the N or V bodies. They had separate locks, plus geared(friction) front tilt, geared rear swing, and interchangeable bellows and extension tracks.

    I used one to photograph forest fires for my MFA Project, and except for the bellows not being fire proof, it was great for that.

    Thanks Rod.

    Its design is very similar to my Linhof Technika IV but has a better design of rear tilt and swing, Kinda like the best of both the Linhof IV and Toyo. I was thinking of getting the Chamonix HS-1 because it has asymmetrical tilts although like the Toyo the Wista is a more solid build. I'll look at the Wista and the used prices compared to a new Chamonix
