I'd like to hear your opinions about any of these issues.
About the mechanical/electronic shutter, I have used mechanical cameras all my life and prefer them. Now I have the chance to get a wide angle lens with an electronic shutter and was wondering if there are some special LF nuances that one should take into consideration, or on the other hand are we just dealing with the usual pros and cons of mechanical/electronic equipment.
Also, I was wondering what solutions users adopt when they need to get a higher vantage point to shoot LF (and using an external source is not an option, i.e. going into an adjoining building, climbing a hill, etc.) For handheld use I might even consider using a ladder but I don't know how it would work with LF, and scaffolding seems a little excessive!
Third, anyone ever hear of a book by Anouk De Wit called "Architectural Diary - Architectural Photography"? I have yet been able to find a copy and wonder if it is really worth hunting for.
