I was looking at that, but the statement but it does work well if you don't mind a little tricky operation makes me wonder.........

Jim, that was the brand back Lars, had at the workshop. His was the 6x17 version.

I've been looking at the same back, from the design it looks like the shen-hao/seagull back. The red counter window is the same, but I've only seen the back of one of these (the shen-hao/seagull) holders in an ad

The back in the link above is not the same as the DAYI 6x12 that Badger Graphic and others are selling under the Shen-Hao name. The DAYI/Shen-Hao back is made from all metal construction. The one on eBay is partially made from plastic. The one on eBay also carries the following warning:

"Tips: Don't pull out the dark slide completely when taking a shot."

That makes it sound like the light trap where the dark slide is inserted is not light tight. I have had no such problems with my DAYI/Shen-Hao 6x12 back.

For a picture of the DAYI/Shen-Hao back, see:

Dead Link Removed

Comparing the two pictures will show that these are clearly not the same back.

I have no experience with the lightweight back from the eBay listing. So, I can't comment on it's quality or performance. I have been using one of the DAYI/Shen-Hao 6x12 backs for almost two years. While the design is definitely low tech and the construction "industrial-grade", I have had no function problems. The simple, even crude, design and construction has very few moving parts to break or wear out.

That statement was the reason for posting this. It is almost like the guy is saying he is selling a piece of crap.

The Shen-hao is not really that much more expensive and it has a pretty good track record. I was leaning that way until I saw this one. I will watch it but not sure I'm bidding on it.
