Awesome! There's something very special to LF photography... Every shot is such an engaging PROCESS.

Oh man, you got a Chamonix 45N-2. I've been eyeing that camera for awhile.

Thanks all. Yes it is a Chamonix 045N-2. I am still learning how to use it so I can't give it a review yet. It seems pretty easy so far. I have to develop my first few shots to see if I am metering correctly.
Composing on the ground glass is a joy. I will post any worthy efforts.

Good! I had to buy some larger graduated cylinders so I could measure out enough developer for my HP Combi Tank. I won't be able to develop anything until they arrive.
I am concerned about my metering (used 1dMk3) so I am waiting to develop my first few shots to see how I am doing. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Really like the work you have posted here on POTN.

Thanks man, I like it...I haven't had a chance to spend a lot of time with it yet... it just came in the mail yesterday :) but it feels really comfortable...not much bigger than a traditional slr. AF is slow and loud but it's really easy to manual focus so that will probably be the way I go.

Thank you very much!

Yes, i have that tank as well and another developing tool [BTZS tubes], but i didn't test any of those two, i tried the trays only once for 1 sheet, came out good exposed/developed but had scratches on the sheet, didn't know how and from where, but i hope next time i can do it better, also thinking to get another tool to develop 4x5, more tempting than those two.

Thanks again about my work here, one day i hope to do much better photography than those then you will enjoy another level of photography i hope.

Is it the 645AFD? or II? Yeah I imagined that the AF would be quite useless. I guess the MF ring is shorter than on MF only glass (e.g. the turn from min dist. to infinity is less than on MF lens)?

Wondering about it as I have never seen 645AFD in life, only on internet. And there are few locally that are priced similar to a RZ67 or 500C. Wondering how it would compare to something like those two cameras.

Actually, the AF is not that bad. I wouldn't choose it as a sports camera but it's really no worse than using a non-USM lens on a 5D. When using it in manual focus, focus confirmation is always available and it displays arrows telling you which way to turn the focus wheel.
