Re: [Rollei] Rollei Users list digest V12 #81

Hi Dan,

     I use the Tiltall with my 'new' (refurbished) 5x7 Seneca and it works fine.

I've got both the handles long for easy adjustment.  It handles everything
smaller just fine.  I may go larger, like 8x10 or 11x14 someday, and for
that, I'll get a Reis made of wood.  The Tiltall allows the 5x7 to be turned
on its side.  As the Seneca has been moded with added front swings, moving
the camera to the side allows front tilts, which it does not have.  The Seneca
only weighs 5 lbs without lens.
