Brian, Sure looks like fun! I've been with my 8x10 almost five years now and once you get comfortable with them it'll feel like putting on your favorite slippers each time you get behind it. When you compare 4x5 negs to 8x10 you'll wonder why anyone would go through the trouble of lugging a 4x5 around for such a tiny negative! Be careful, its an addiction: I just got my banquet camera a few weeks ago!---------Cheers!
