I have a Rolleicord and I love the square format. But I have run into to trouble with people accepting it. One of my local photo clubs has a contest but it is only open to 8 X 10 and 8 X 12 prints. I have been fighting with their competition committee in order to get them to allow 8 X 8. Another man who shoots with a Hasselblad has been trying for the past six years. They are already comparing two rectangles. What is so wrong with allowing for a square if the photography is of good quality?
Maybe you could convince them if you went with a 10x10 or a 12x12 instead.
