    Can't say I care at all for circular/oval format.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I currently buy all my film from Rubbermaid and stretch it to fit any aspect ratio I wish.

    I feel like the horizontal wide format is being thrust upon us by monitors and TV's.

    Vertical shots just don't look good on electronics (merely because they get shrunk to fit so they become "tiny" in comparison). So if verticals were rare before... I am sure they are even more rare today.

    With some googling I found the site I had seen recently seen with the circular photos I liked (I think it was linked on the LFPF.) I think it was in a post about a View Camera magazine article:

    Rubbermaid -- isn't that a brand of English condoms?
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Yes, that's it - text by Sandy King. So I did see it in the View Camera magazine.
