Yes, I am time poor at the moment and so I have only ventured out 3 times to shoot so far. So I have 6 sheets to process which, in likelihood, will happen tomorrow morning.
Those occasions have been a great opportunity to learn and hone the intricacies of the little Sweet FA. I have been using a quite small, light tripod but have switched to a heavier twin-shank number because the Sweet FA does not have a lifting bail for inserting and removing double-darks and the little one can jiggle about a bit more than I like. The last Toyo I had didn't have a lifting bail either, but on the series 4 Gitzo it was no great issue.
I see the distinct possibility that when time and funds permit I may well do a switcheroo back to a Toyo. The Horseman really is very small and some things are quite fiddly as a result. Time will tell. The thing of most importance is that after the theft at least I have restored a capability once more. The present quest may well be the acquisition of another Nikkor-SW 75mm. But I am so enthused by the 135mm focal length. IT is all I have used thus far.
