the view camera struggle

Thank you Zarya Volya not just for taking this image but also for the loan of your coat needed to see the camera back. I almost lost this coat to the wind. A permanent shade cloth on the camera would be convenient but might also be a wind hazard, consequences might be worse than camera shake. You might think this impressive large camera would be a camera shake solution, but in fact not all the movements lock solid. The leather bellows is vulnerable to wind vibration which would pull on the lens and film.  The resulting image was the adjacent post Tidal River
