I'm thinking about buying one of these kits instead of jumping into getting an 8x10 and finding a lens and all that. I have a couple of questions though.

How large of a paper print can I comfortably get out of a 4x5 plate? What do you do about a tripod for these cameras? This looks like it includes all of the chemicals I need, the camera etc. but what else will I need for the dark room set up? A red light and obviously a dark room with ventilation but anything else?

Any info would be much appreciated. I have big plans for this technique and I just want to make sure I understand the limitations of this set up.
