[There is a question buried below - refs on view camera movement setup.] <p> First. Got the Arca-Swiss 4x5 "Field" camera couple weeks ago (has the 6x9 front element, small collapsible monorail). Having a blast. Movements are exquisite - smooth, tight, easy to assemble, compact when disassembled. <p> Taking pics - mom (most difficult subject), Bayonne Bridge, Delaware Water Gap, abandoned church. (As an aside - I doubt I will be a winter landscape photographer long term - California is the place for me... Running back). <p> After suffering a bit with a light leaking used Hasselblad I decided to minimize my missteps at some expense by buying core equipment new. Arca-Swiss "field" camera, 65, 90 and 240mm Nikon lenses. I saved the notes from responders on lens selections - I scoped out some used places - definitely want a longer lens, will buy that used. <p> A question: good, clear references on using tilts, shifts etc. of view camera for say architectural work? The church was beautiful - I know I can do better with a firmer background in how to manipulate the camera to correct distortions. Any pointers would be great. <p> So, after shooting (and still shooting) high end digital SLRs for 3+ years I have to confess - it still seems like magic when you get back a picture (slides - first time for me, always did negs before) from the shop. That it is coming out of a manual view camera and the 4x5 size you can SEE - it's a rush. Almost forget how damned cold it is outside. <p> I'm dragging this puppy into the studio and hooking up the strobes.
