    Chamonix Quality (see my new 5x12)

    In a doctor prescribed move, I've been down-sizing my cameras a bit and just took delivery of a new Chamonix 5x12 camera and holders. I just want to say that the quality is just *ridiculous! I mean that word in the sense that today's teenagers use it, meaning fantastic, amazing, what we used to call "swell" Both the camera and holders are exquisitely made and beautifully finished. This camera now sports user friendly single swing opening bail, front tilt stops. 90 deg back stop and enlarged knobs (always good!). The holders fit perfectly in position and show perfect registration; I've never seen a nicer flat black matte interior finish. Couldn't be more pleased.
    Oh, I have no connection to this company other than enriching their bank account on occasion...

    *My 19-year-old son says ridiculous is now passe, so I said should I have said phat? He just rolled his eyes and walked away muttering to himself...

    Here's a picture of my new baby...

    When I was 16 I thought my father the stupidest man in the world; when I reached 21, I was astounded by how much he had learned in just 5 years!

    Richard, you sure you are down-sizing?

    Beautiful camera. Try mentioning your new camera is "sick" the next time your son walks by--he might roll his eyes a bit less (or a lot more).

    How many film holders do you have to used with the new camera? It sure looks nice.

    Yes....I sold my 14x17 and will sell the 8x20 (the 5x12 is the replacement for this) as soon as people have money again...

    Tell him you're "pwning" the format. At'd be pronounced "poning", as in brutally owning. He'll start asking about your friends...

    Beautiful new cam, BTW!
