The 810 Alpinist
In response to customer requests and user feedback, Chamonix has designed the 810 Alpinist, an ultralight, horizontal-only view camera. By "ultralight" Chamonix means that the Alpinist is only 57% the weight of the 810V model. The 810 Alpinist is for the photographer that shoots mostly in the "landscape orientation," but of course, a vertical composition can be made simply by turning the tripod head 90º to the side.
The metal parts of the 810 Alpinist are anodized aluminum with black finish. The wood choices are teak and cherry.
The 810 Alpinist view camera uses a Sinar-type lens board.
The 810 Alpinist is crafted with the same attention to fit and finish as the 810V model. Because of the very high standards of the craftsmen, a model run can take months from start of wood preparation, as described for the 810V view camera, to final assembly.
The first production run of the 810 Alpinist sold out in just one month; the second production run is underway.
Here are the specifications:
Maximum bellows extension: 570mm;
with extension board: 850mm
Minimum bellows extension: 60mm
Front rise: 72mm
Front fall: 53mm
Front tilt: limited by bellows
Front swing: limited by bellows
Front shift: 50mm on each side
Rear swing: 10 degrees on each side
Rear tilt: 30 degrees back; forward limited by bellows
Rear shift: none
Folded size: 355mm x 270mm x 97mm
Weight, without the ground glass protective cover: 2,460g (5.4lb)!
