Very nice camera! I'm guessing that weighs well over 10 lbs? That must have been a lot of work getting the balance right. A great accomplishment for sure! My 4x5 Crown Graphic only weighs about 5 lbs. Its fairly easy to manage, even with my weaker setup.
One thing I really like about 4x5 is that it seems even lower end scanners can still pull out fairly high amounts of detail.
Great to hear you are planning to shoot some more film shots in the future. Looking forward to seeing them.
Yeah, a smaller field camera would be the way to go. This monorail is just too darn heavy. I really should not have even attempted it, but like film photography itself....why?
All the good films are gone. I'm just strolling through the park with my last box of candy.
Got a fine DSLR with many pieces of fast glass. At times I'll pursue that road, but a good film shot, despite the extra work is still fun and rewarding.
The Pentax 67 kit and the film freezer are still with me. For regular film work, that is the way to go. I've shot literally hundreds of hours of combined exposure time with it with few problems. I may start posting a "best of...." those frames.
Thanks for chiming in.
