Horseman 45 LXC/45 FA : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread


I shall appreciate comments from anyone who's had expereince with either of these two cameras. What are their pros and cons? They are very well made but it appears that they aren't too popular in the USA. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that Horseman hasn't been too active in marketing it in the US (almost like Linhof, of which the Horseman resembles. Thanks...rene

rene, I used one for six months, it is a good camera for studio work but too heavy and IMHO clumsy for location work. On the other hand I am biased towards base tilt cameras like the ARCA-Swiss and the Sinar because of their ease of use. Ellis
