What advice can everyone give me?

Hi Jeff,

Did you consider to use your PEN camera inside a fake view camera (and its tripod) similar to that used for the Civil War photographers? It could be an interesting opportunity to make some high quality pictures within the spirit of the things...

I think you could get a cheap non functional view camera where you could adapt your main camera and lens.

Best regards,
