    Hey, and maybe it does, because it gives them more confidence to shoot differently. But in the end, it's not for me to say.

    By the way, that hasn't stopped me from owning some very expensive gear at various times. It didn't always improve my photography, but it sure did make my wallet thin.
    Pretty much what I've been trying to say all through this thread...

    No "emoticon" needed. Just click the ignore button and be done with it.

    yes - just trying to bring another perspective in - which is funny since I'm a 'LF guy'. But I think there's a lot of people who sit around with the tacit assumption that bigger film = better. Probably not for ralph gibson... I don't think his work would be possible or desirable with LF. As an example of what I mean to suggest...
