Hi Folks,

Just bought myself a late Christmas present (as it will arrive on 04JAN18), a Graflex Speed Graphic. Similar to this (but a little more worse for the wear) Actual pic. Just look at that magnificent bastard!

This is what press photographers in the 40's and 50's used to use. It produces yuuuge 4" x 5" negatives, so lots of detail to be had. Iā€™m excited (partially because Iā€™ve been drinking) as Iā€™ve wanted one of these for a bit. Going to be quite the learning curve, as thereā€™s a lot of moving parts and you donā€™t get 24 or 36 chances. Gonna be fun!
