    wista dx wooden cameras

    I haven't seen any reviews of any Wista cameras. However, an appendix in Leslie Stroebel's book "View Camera Technique" includes very detailed specifications fo r virtually all view cameras currently sold, including several Wista models. The se specifications will at least allow you to compare the Wista with other view c ameras in terms of movements, bellows extension, and all sorts of features.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    I frequently use a 65mm on my Wista DX. Not much movement, but it focuses fine. For longer lenses, 300mm should be the maximum limit for conventional lenses and 400mm for telephoto design lenses.
