Shen Hao GJ 4x5

The latest addition to my collection, a large format field camera (4x5 inch) from the chinese manufacturer Shen Hao (see link). I bought it used with a Nikon W 210mm/5,6. Seems this model is no longer available. My treasure shows some traces of use but after using some wood wax and brass polish, its a pleasure to use and look at.
Next satruday I will source for "Shanghai 4x5 film" in Shanghai. A local contact told me the price for one box with 50 sheets is 80 RMB. Lets see. As soon I am able to use it I will update you with some stunning large slides.
