    Looking forward to seeing what you produce with it, Brian. Good light to you!

    You know, when I first tried 4x5", I wasn't too impressed with it, but felt an immediate affinity for 8x10". I only came around to 4x5" recently when I wanted something small and light that could be handheld or set up quickly on a tripod, but that uses sheet film and has movements. 35mm is mainly just for the birds now (with my 600/4.5 lens) and copy photography when I need 35mm slides. 6x6 is for when I want an SLR.

    well I've been playing with a Box Brownie and it's 6x9cm negs look huge to me (compared to me 645 and 35mm stuff) I do play with 5x7 and 8x10 pinhole cameras, but they aren't the same as aproper camera neg! I can feel the tug of a large negative coming...

    I too Frank think it looks huge lol But something I'd like to try for contact printing alone. But agree as well that enlarging and printing is something I enjoy and wouldn't want to give up. Besides, I just moved up from 25yrs of using 35mm to 4x5 and these negatives look large now. But can easily see what David is talking about...everything is so relative! lol

    Good Luck, it looks fantastic Bryan!

    Brian, Sure looks like fun! I've been with my 8x10 almost five years now and once you get comfortable with them it'll feel like putting on your favorite slippers each time you get behind it. When you compare 4x5 negs to 8x10 you'll wonder why anyone would go through the trouble of lugging a 4x5 around for such a tiny negative! Be careful, its an addiction: I just got my banquet camera a few weeks ago!---------Cheers!

    Brian, I have been thinking around the 10x8 format for a bit now chiefly for alt.process printing. Your pics could give me a kick start !

    me too&#33; I&#39;m into it for a little over &#036;500 including the convertable lens, and 5 cut film holders. Not bad for a few hours work on Ebay

    What a nice-looking camera&#33;

    Unlike some others here, my progression was 35mm - 6x4.5 - 5x7" - 4x5", and now branched into 6x6 and 6x9 as well (old folders...). My 4x5" monorail is the small portable LF camera, but only compared to the 5x7 Technika.

    I&#39;m not ready for 8x10". Yet. My enlarger only takes up to 5x7", which is also big enough for decent contact prints.

    But I&#39;m sure I&#39;ll get bitten too. Eventually.

    I am glad to see it got to you in good shape. The lensboards are no problem. When it comes to chutting and trimming, a big piece of wood is easier to work on than a teeny tiny one. Now take it out and start shooting

    Is my type glowing green with envy? Looks nice, and if I could afford it I would be into 8x10, but for now 4x5 will have to do. Once the bigger negative progression starts, it is hard to resists the next larger format.
