I figure it's hard enough to get involved with LF, so you might as well start with a camera that uses a format for which you can easily find lenses, holders, and such (i.e., 4x5 or 8x10), and then when you get crazy like me with my 11x14" or even more crazy like William Levitt with his 12x15", you'll have enough of the basics mastered to deal with all the problems of adapting an odd format camera.
