    Six minutes of Chamonix 8x10

    That truly is a beautiful camera. Heck even the film holder looks beautifully made! Still a big fan of geared movements though, not that it matters, my eyes gave up on my for manual focusing due to a rare(ish) condition that I got a year or so ago. All but one of my LF cameras are sold now.

    It's a nice looking camera but it doesn't have a very sturdy look.
    I am so used to my Deardorffs that I don't think I'd
    like missing the tracks.
    My baby is over 50 years old, still works great.
    I wonder how long those wooden rails will last
    on that camera. It's nice but probably very pricey.
    Thanks for the link, nice to see a real camera once in a while.
