Can't wait!!

Last night I received confirmation that the money has hit australian shores!

Mr Jones will start manufacture at the weekend, and that means my RazzleDog 900 will be with me in a few weeks!



I can't wait. Every penny I had has been spent on it, and I hope it's worth it! 4x5 RF here I come


Now if only I could shift the 4x5 monorail........

Hi Ash,

I googled for the camera name . . . So it's a 4x5 conversion of one of the old Polaroid cameras ? That could be a handy mini-technical camera sort of idea. Keep us all posted

Erik, I removed the RF coupling bits from my speed graphic, as the mirror had deteriorated, and I wanted to use various barrel lenses.


Good luck with your graphic, I'm not so keen on hand-holding mine

I'm not sure what Dean is choosing, either a 150mm Rodenstock Geronar f6.3 or a 135mm f5.6 Fujinon W - I told him whichever is easier to close the camera up without removing the front element!

I'll find out when the camera arrives

So you pulled the trigger on a Razzle...
I'm just a little bit jealous, we will need a review after you have played with it for a while.

Also, make sure you don't get caught by Mr. Littman somehow violating his patent.

Kevin, don't mention the L word!!

The guys on LFPF have already 'joked' about that. I'm hoping there being a whole ocean between the two companies will mean problems are averted at least until my Razzle arrives

I'll be sure to take lots of photo's of the camera, and lots WITH it as well


A very subjective review will be in the works once it arrives.

I can't wait for your review and some test shots. I have looked at these for a while and am interested in what you think once you get it.

I've had to keep my hands away from my wallet for some time, until I was sure that there was no other way (hence the speed graphic among other cameras).

I hope it is all it's cracked up to be. If not I can always resell it with no loss, considering the waiting times, and limited supply
