Yes, these look like a good way for a beginner to get into LF. I have to wonder what 8 x 10 contact prints look like......  (fantasy purchase) Wink

I bought my little Shen 6x9 from Badger a couple of years ago.  Beautiful camera.

EBay is your friend.

I just bought another 8x10 backup camera for $ 375 on EBay. Required a small repair that cost me $5 in parts

Selling most of my 5 camera systems last two years my Shen Hao was the camera I did not sell. I agree it is beautiful, also a sheer pleasure and joy to work with. Mine is TFC45-IIB.

I purchased mine in their shop in Shanghai, service is excellent. If anyone is in Shanghai their shop is in the camera and photo supply shopping mall at corner of Luban / Xietu Lu (road).

Time to start saving, reading up, and lifting weights  Smiley  . I first saw 4 x 5" view cameras in action way back in the film days, and as a 35mm DIY B&W darkroom hobbyist, I was in awe. The down side to LF is having printing facilities. The enlargers cost more than the cameras.

I think the opposite unless there has been some surge in the price. I bought a floor staring Durst colour 5x7 with tons of extras and lots of schneider lens for 165., it's in beautiful condition. I've had it about 4 years but never used it. My winter project is getting the darkroom up and running.
I have seen highish prices being asked on ebay for something like a De Vere bench top 5x4, but I've never seen anyone sell one at those prices.
A decent LF enlarger is an absolute must, or the effort of shooting LF is a waste of time.
And compare the price of a wet print with that of a quality inkjet, add in the price of an Epson and life expectancy  and B&W wet printing is dirt cheap.
A decent enlarger will out live us all, you can't say that about an inkjet printer, besides wet printing is hands on fun.

I love the smell of chemicals in the morning! Now if I can just locate a place to put such an enlarger...
