Horseman VH 6 x 9 field camera -- Advice? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I have an opportunity to pick up a Horseman VH 6 x9 field camera in nice condition for about $1,200 (the new price is $2,100). Does anyone have experience with this camera? This would be my first view camera. I will use it almost exclusively for landscapes. I like to day hike and backpack and want to have view camera movements, but be able to use roll film because it is much less expensive than 4 x 5.
