    Chamonix in Santa Cruz

    Hi all,
    Does anyone living in the Santa Cruz CA area use a Chamonix 4x5 camera? I am contemplating buying one and would like to see / handle one in the flesh before I purchase one. I don't need to shoot any film, but if you want to go out and shoot some, I'm not opposed, and could spring for lunch or something.
    TIA
    Dave

    If you happen to make it south to Santa Barbara, I could help you out.

    Thanks, Harley, I don't think I'll be able to make a run down that way until after the new year. Very nice photos, by the way, I especially like the little manzanita in the red rocks and also the Desert bloom shots.

    Santa Cruz to Santa Barbara ... both start the same way ... they are really close ... about 5 inches apart on the map.
    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Dave,

    Thanks for the comments!

    Offer stands if you don't find a Cham to play with until after the new year. It seems to be getting here rather quickly.

    No one closer to the Snata Cruz area? San Francisco, San Jose, Monterey, Salinas?
    Thanks,

    Just saw this. I have the 45n-1 version of this camera. It lives in Morgan Hill (just south of San Jose), but I could bring it to work with me in Palo Alto. - a bring you camera to work day.

    Curt, Thank you. I've had a few PMs with a guy closer, so if that doesn't work out, I get back in touch with you. I have friends in Morgan Hill, So I have another excuse to go there. I also get to PA sonetimes, but thats usually on a Saturday, so that probably wouldn't work.
    I''l be in touch.

    You guys could meet in the middle sometime and shoot at the Oceano Dunes- a very cool landscape photography site

    Hmm- Never been there, I'll have to think about that, usually if I take a longer trip than one day, it over the Sierras. Or to Utah. I'll keep that in mind.
