For anyone who's thinking about moving into 4x5 . . . : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

. . . or might think about it somewhere down the road in the future, be sure to pick up the November issue of Popular Photography (yes, Popular Photography!). They have a very good introduction to using a view camera and a pretty comprehensive and even-handed survey, with photographs, of 18 4x5's under $1850. Experienced LF pros will doubtless nitpick with some of the comments and ratings (esp. regarding their own cameras!), but for everyone trying to find their way around in the confusing sea of LF gear and technique, this issue is an excellent entry point.

Maybe it will become an annual feature....

I must agree. I too was surprised. This is one issue worth buying.

Could someone let me know how/where I can obtain a back issue or reprint of this article, please? NB - I'm in the UK.
