Except for architectural work, any 80-100 year old view camera will do the job. I use a Rochester Universal View, made by Rochester Optical Company division of Kodak, and it works fine for portraits and landscapes. That is the only 8X10 I've ever owned. In 5X7, which I use much more, I've used an Ansco, a Seneca, and a Burke & James. The B&J has full movements, which can be nice in the studio, but for landscapes I prefer the Ansco first, and the Seneca second.
