    Mr. Simmons,
    You're one of the reasons why I got into large format after many years of wanting to, but shying away for one reason or another.
    Thank you, Sir, for all you do!

    Good timing for me, been looking at lots of LF gear over the past few weeks and trying to educate myself. :crazy:

    Great magazine! Quality photographs with interesting articles. I always look forward to receiving the new issue in the mail.

    I also own your book "Using the View Camera by Steve Simmons". Learning movements on large format cameras can be daunting at first but you explain it well in an easy to understand way with plenty of pictures. I highly recommend your book along with View Camera Magazine to anyone starting out.

    Yes, of course, but these days it's binary.

    I posted before I saw the date.

    I wonder why no one answered Steve back in 2002?
