    "To have a good, old or classic camera does not make you a good photographer. Some guys go to trip to europe with several thousands dollars worth of m7 and shoot on expired fuji film. There are people gives 400 dollars or more to a 8X10 pinhole camera. I learned that there is only 10 or less good photographer in APUG to be considered serious. If you want lists of lists , we have gallery and with searching a film , camera , paper , you find whom used what."

    I wonder where does the OP make reference to a "good" photographer or a "serious" one, to paraphrase you, unless you know better than the OP what he meant...

A little like movie critics: there is not a single one whose advice you agree 100% of the time. And a movie seat costs less than a camera.
    Agreed on the parameters, but again, might be a good way to get the information out there.
    My idea is not on ridiculing the thread format or on anyone asking questions, but on "archiving" (loosely put) the information that APUG users richly have and provide in an easy to access format. Again, I agree with the reviews, I have some personal likings someone else the opposite - but its not that hard to capture it really. (Maybe my background in using spreadsheets for inane comparisons- work related- and lists helps me that way..)

    The key idea was/is to capture the information in one place.

    Sorry, that wasnt my question at all. And mind you, this is the equipment forum

    Could be an app or a single thread. Idea was just information collation and presentation.
    Reading posts can be quite confusing even at the end of all the reading (as can pie charts!)

    6x6 SLR: Hasselblad, Bronica, Rolleiflex

    6x6 “budget”: Yashica TLR, Kowa 6

    6x7 fixed lens: Fuji 670

    David, this is a good start, and if each add something then we can have that thread which can be a good reference, sure it will not stop posting threads for new members, but it will help a lot in answers and even those new members may not start threads asking many questions after looking at that reference thread.

    I suggest we start with one size format, then when we include most important things not necessary 100% details then we can move to another size format, let's start with 6x4.5 then 6x6 then 6x7,...etc.

    In film field of MF i have only 6x6/6x7 and 6x9, i can contribute with what i have, but i am not an equipment expert, i sometimes come here to ask or find information about something i have or want to get.

    How about first start by categorize the type of cameras in MF world, then we can put each type on different format sizes.

    hi OP

    as for large format ....

    there are several branches of this sort of photography but here goes

    anything "graphic or graflex "
    ( speed, crown view, viewII, slr &c )
    is a workhorse and a great camera for most applications.

    for olde timey sorts of things, there are box and magazine cameras
    that will have simple lenses and shutters and be a bit more unpredictable than something
    more modern. box cameras were made in all shapes and sizes, small roll films, large sheet films
    and will usually give you a lo-fi lo-tech, atmospheric image like a modern lomo or holga or ?
    for a fraction of the $$
