    Another good resource for someone just starting out is the 'Getting Started in Large Format Photography' article at View Camera Magazine's web site. You can find it at:

    Good luck in your search.

    I use my Tachihara a lot. I am very satisfied with it - It backpacks well - is light and has enough movements for what I do. The money I saved bought lenses. The front standard is not as sturdy as a premium camera I think but it is quite usable.
    My photos are always without all that distracting color ...

    Wow, thanks for all the great input folks. I have a lot to consider now with all this great info. It has started me to think about looking at used cameras as well, such as a Horseman Woodman 45, a Wisner 4X5 Traditional or maybe a Zone VI 4X5 field camera. There are so many great choices I'm sure any of the above would serve me well. Thanks again for your input.

    I have used a Zone VI 4X5 for about 15 years now. These do come up on Ebay fairly regularly. It has proven to be a solid performer. The only recommendation that I would make in regard to this particular camera is that if you plan on shooting 90 mm or shorter lenses that the bag bellows is almost a necessity. Good luck in your journey.

    Johnny,

    In the future you will want a monorail. Buy it now and save time.
