I know that there are plenty in the 4x5 world from graflex to linhof and several ones in between but I've never looked into 8x10. I was just trying to figure out if this were really doable.
So far the film is expensive for sure but I would just shoot less. Similarly I don't find 120 to be more expensive than 35mm because I shoot differently, more slowly.
