    I shoot B&W and E-6. No C-41 for me because I only know one place left to process it and not willing to travel to that lab.

    I occasionally shoot Ektachrome 4x5 (because I scored a pile cheap ($1/sheet)) and make 8x10 contact negatives for various alt processes.

    "Why is the camera upside down?", to which I sometimes tell them that they have to stand on their head.
    When I rotate the back on my Super Graphic they ask why does the image not rotate with it.

    That's because the Graphic is a press camera. The image will probably rotate with the back on a real view camera.

    You need to tell them that one needs to rotate the LENS to do that

But unless you have a 4x5 projector, it would seem printing would have to be done digitally for the most part, wheras you could put a sheet of color negative film in a 4x5 enlarger.
    Yes, people do shoot color negative film in large format cameras. Is it common? I don't know. I shoot 8x10 color negative and color transparency. I have fun with taking the transparencies to work and projecting them on the wall with an overhead projector. It's really nice to see them projected. You could do the same with the 4x5 and a mask of some sort.

    As for printing from a transparency I have had internegatives made from several of my 8x10 transparencies and gotten prints made that way.

It would seem that due to the thickness of the film holder, it would be in front of the ground glass surface. Do you remove the ground glass before inserting the film holder?
    The frame that holds the glass is movable. You move it out of the way to put the film holder in, and the film in the holder ends up where the ground glass was (you hope). There are springs that connect the ground glass frame to the rest of the back. These springs both hold the film holder tightly against the back and make it so you don't have to totally remove the frame when inserting a film holder.

    It's still possible to print Ilfochromes by projection from LF transparencies.

    This upside down/backwards conundrum is even worse when you're shooting paper negatives, and can't look through a transparent film base to see the image the way you did on the ground glass, but rather you have to imagine the front side of the ground glass and how the projected image thereon appears.

    Regarding the whole issue of left/right reversal of images in mirrors, I've often wondered why mirrors also don't reverse things up/down; that is, why is there a preferential axis of reversing in the horizontal direction? One resource that helped me understand that question better was the late Martin Gardner's book "The Ambidextrous Universe."

    I suspect the difference between C41 & transparency is the printing industry was able to get a better result by using the transparency film as the original. To the client it also looks REAL impressive when you put it on a light box and a negative looks kinda orange & blah and it's a much harder sell.
