IMHO 8x10 work is hardly a "major learning curve" as someone claimed above. Sure, it's more labor intensive by virtue of size and bulk, but involves the exact same photographic principles as any other type of view camera traditional photography, ie. "exposure, lighting, perspective, depth of field, subject movement (you mean moving targets?)", swings, tilts and so on.
The same person above said they shoot 8x10 because of ". . .the tonal and intense image granularity blow [you] away." I really wish [s]he would explain what tonalty and granularity has to do with the format you're using rather than the way the film is exposed and processed.
