Summary Edit

The Plaubel Peco Profia 8 x 10 view camera in field use in southwestern France.

Even if one discounts the weight of the wooden Berlebach tripod seen in the photo, the 8 x 10 Profia is an extremely heavy system to carry in a backpack. The camera, a selection of lenses and the large 8 x 10 film holders, the light meters, critical focusing tools, notebook and other accessories ensure that one either brings some sort of cart or shoots very close to one's car.

That said, the Profia, once setup, is very easy to use and combines axis tilt on both standards - which relieves the burden of refocusing when tilting - as well as rise/fall, shift and swing movements.

This Profia includes a 4 x 5 reducing back (not seen here).
