I really put this camera thru the mill. Heave catalog shooting. Over 300 set up shots of rooms, location, sets, the works. It holds up very well and is easy to use. You just have to watch that you set the film holder to its proper position. Horizontal or vertical. Dont laugh, it happens, and reshoots are costly and they suck. Also you have to remember to advance the film. You can shoot all day on one frame if you like. I found the movements to be stable and easy to use once you get used to where they are. I went for the F compact because of its weight. I had the larger one but It was just to damn heavy. If you are considering one of these and can get past the cost It will serve you well. The attachments are as expensive as hell and I looked for other brands that fit. They are just as good in my opinion. All in all this camera fit the bill for me and Ive billed out over two million dollars using this little guy. Get the 6x9 film backs and you will be happy. Also get an extended rail. A reflex viewer is a must also and is very expensive. There is no aftermarket piece for that I dont think. If you have any questions feel free to email me.
