An interesting thing about those old studio cameras that I only found out in the past year or two is that they used the backs as a sort of zoom. 11x14 for a full standing portrait, 8x10 for a 3/4 portrait, 5x7 for a half portrait, and 4x5 for a head and shoulders portrait, for example. That apparently allowed them to work in a fairly small studio with the one camera. When enlargers became common they just used the biggest back that their enlarger would accommodate.
I had known about how the old time press photographers would use their 135mm as a kind of 35mm to 135mm zoom by cropping the images, but using the different size backs that way was new to me. I guess you could call that cropping in the camera.
