    Hello Haris, I echo the previous post in using what you already have. What a wonderful opportunity that you have to document your country's and society's changes in the time ahead. Bigger is not always better. One can produce some wonderful work with medium format. The expense of using medium format is more manageable. I can see a day when your documentary of your country in transition would be applauded by the masses. Good luck to you, no matter what you choose to do.
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    I've had to do LF on a budget myself, so I know how it is.

    Personally, I went with 4x5. Mostly because in the U.S. there is a huge amount of used gear available. For just a couple of hundred dollars you can get a working Crown or Speed Graphic with an old Polaroid back and an old tripod. Or for a little more you can get something like an old Calumet 400 series for more movement.

    Lenses are also much cheaper for 4x5, although if you want cheap you end up buying older lenses. Which is a risk.
