I managed to grab all the 8x10 dark slides from a studio photgrapher who sold all his large format gear and switched to digital. While driving back i was wondering why he choosed 8x10 in the first place, when 4x5 could be much efficient and convenient in commercial environment. But How would he compare 8x10 to digital? Jumping from 35 or 120 to digital could make sense for a commercial man but how from 8x10. Would that be just an ego shooting on 8x10 now couldnt front the huge savings involved in digital. Was 8x10 there for quality or just a show off?
