    I have just tried my new tripod out, it 's a Miliboo from china, designed to take 15 KG of weight and my Calumet C1 8*10 view camera weights in at 10 KG, the only fault I can find is where the tripod accessory plate slides in, it wobbles a little, may have to put a bit of packing in to take that out. 6L5X4662.JPG

    Wow, what a beast, Craig. That tripod looks very secure. And the camera also looks impressive too.
    Waiting to hear how you go with it.

    It will be some time, I have to hook my garage up to the storm water drain pipe, have it inspected and maybe get back to building my darkroom.
    it will be sometime yet, i still have to get aDark cloth, Loupe. cut negatives and chemicals, etc.
    At the moment i have been showing it to my students along with film photography and various film sizes, etc.

    Update, I found out what caused the wobble.
    The Accessory Plate has two different sized screws and catches on the head of the small screw, I removed the small one and it's sturdy now.

    The advantage of the 8*10 inch negative is I can enlarge photos up to 4*5 foot , excellent example of this can be found in the works of Clyde Butcher and his images of the Everglades.
    I already have 2 rolls of 48inch wide photo paper, its a bit old but should be fun to see how I go when I make enlargements, the rolls are somewhat out of date but good to learn and play around with.
