    flotsam - fish eye shot of a grizzly!!!!HEHEHEHEHEHEHEE!!!!! That is a good one!

    I love 35mm - I love the way they look and feel, the SLR's, the RF's - every time I play with an RB67 I get giddy with joy! I love the aerobics that my lubitel makes me do to get a decent shot! And when I see anything at all with bellows - my heart melts! As soon as I can, I will have a LF rig, for sure. Probably a few...

    Love them all! I do. I think 35mm users slagginf LF guys is just as stupid and misguided as the reverse!

Also, if it concerns people they become self-conscious and they change. So the small camera is extremely valuable because it lets you work fast by seeing fast and becuase it uses materials that will record something in a relatively brief time. (1973)
    of course, rocks and trees don't have these problems. Grace and suddeness are the strong points of the 35mm — a primary essence of its usage is to make photographs snatched from life.

    Sorry that the absurdity of "death to rocks" was lost.

    I'll confess to using that shameful teeny weenie 35 stuff, BUT only when necessary. My fastest 4x5 lens is f/5.6, but the 35 has an f/1.4 which is a distinct advantage - in some cases.

    99x178?:o Afford it- heck I couldn't even lift it. What do you have as an accessory- a mule!
    And how many shurpas does it take to load that holder in the camera?
