After many request i made a videos (2 this time, one in Italian and other in Tuscan-english for my fans) when i try to explain the most important difference between tailboard camera and folding camera.
- Opening setup: the open setup of tailboard is more quick and easy than folding, but folding, when is close, is smaller and lighter than Tailboard.
- Open and close system: tailboard is an “open camera”, in any moment of camera life you could change camera parts, increase the format, the length, add movements and so on without changing on the camera, the folding camera is “close camera” you can’t increase or change format in a second time.
- Costs: in a Tailboard camera you choose the best configuration for you and then choose how much you spend, the folding camera was born as a complete camera and therefore with a higher starting price
Bellow the two videos and links for more details of the two cameras.
