So after months (if not years) of lusting after a technical camera, and slowly saving up to buy bits here and there, I am finally the proud owner of a basic tech cam setup:

SK35 xl
Cambo Wrs

the final bit arrived this morning (the lens) and.....

we have a 'stay at home' order in effect, and I am not allowed to go out with my camera :(

I feel you. I'm in a position [again] to get a back for my own tech cam setup, but, COVID aside, our second son is due to make an appearance any day now and I realized it makes no sense to buy a back with a newborn on the way. "Back "to the waiting least backs get cheaper and back technology moves forward the longer I wait.

Congratulations! And I’m sure you can find plenty of projects While under lockdown, like shifting to get an entire window in frame without perspective distortion (don’t ask me how I know...).

Congrats! You'll love the process and the results. Still remember the first time I tested mine after it arrived.
