Just splurged on picrel, basically a 4x5 Big Shot, what am I in for? Anyone ever even see one of these before?

How much did you spend on that? It's a cool camera, but you will be extremely limited on what you can photograph.
The only way to focus it is through the aperture by changing the DoF, and you will most likely not be able to get to infinity.

You should have gotten a sinar handy if you wanted a handheld 4x5 camera.

On the bright side you should be able to take some killer portraits with it. It has a ground glass, right? Does it take standard 4x5 film holders?

Oh wait.. It has that goofy string focus thing. That's kinda cool, but still fairly limiting.

What's your plan with the camera?

Probably spent way more than it’s worth but I had some cash to burn from some compulsory overtime this pay period, 300usd. I understand it will be limiting but it might be fun like the Polaroid is, has a graflok back so I can mount an instax onto it as well as roll film etc. just wanted to mess around with it really, no overarching plan lol. Don’t eBay groggy on the toilet in the mornings, kids.

The limiting nature will make it a fun camera to use until you want more from a 4x5. Looks like the lens is worth at least 200 bucks, and it is cambo. I have no clue on the quality of takamura lenses.

You can say you own a cambo now as well!

>what am I in for?
How do you get one and ask this after, are you retarded?

It’s the 4chan way. My favorite is on /tv/, the ol “I’m about to watch X movie, what did I think about it?” And so on. Timeless setup.

Can’t take a photo without the ai in your phone basically hallucinating it for you first, eh?

You get your camera yet?

No it’s stuck in customs even though it’s just going from USA to Canada. Stupid sexy border. Already thought of a simple way to use the string focuser thing with my lomograflok so it should be fun when it gets here.
>>

Shit. Looking forward to seeing how you use it.

I just found a good condition sinar p2 for sale at samy's camera for 350 lol. Looking forward to one handed, and geared movements for when I do my macro photography.

Bitch finally came in and I unwrapped it before leaving to work today. It’s so large and unwieldy I love it for its weirdness already lol. One thing I didn’t realize is that it’s made of fuckign metal, some kind of porous carbon steel type alloy so it’s quite heavy. I tried throwing on the instagraflok but didn’t get anything useful after a couple shots. Have to plop down in front of a focus chart and work out how much the working distance changes with that back on it. Should be fun though, it’s one of those cameras that’s “for the meme” more than anything lol. Lens seems quite nice though.

my guess is that the viewfinder isn't through the lens, so it's telling you to compose higher than normal (at the forehead instead of the eyes) to get everything how you want it.

The length of the string focuses the camera.
