Ralph: I'm a bit confused! Is this new forum replacing the two threads ("safe haven for tiny formats" and "MF B&W Film Images Sharing") currently in the Lounge?

Nice, I stop by the Alabama almost every year when I go to Biloxi, Mississippi, for Christmas. Here's one shot there with my Pentax 67 and 45mm lens about 4 years ago:

Essentially, yes. See the post in the News section about the changes.

Will the two threads merge or moved to this forum?

I agree, we seem to be getting too many requests to consider formats other then large format and some even asking to consider di******.
If I want to see those things I can go to the other sites.

Anybody have a Queen Mary image? I don't, but the documentary I just saw made me think it was the greatest of all 'battleships' from it's immense job of transporting 16,000 troops at a time to EU.

It also was faster than any U Boat or torpedo.

We are now waiting for LF digital to arrive with 4x5 or larger sensor.

Not merged, but moved.

I could buy a lot of film for the price of one of those puppies. :(

I'm totally confused. Ralph, is your reference to the LF Clarification (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/showthread.php?116888-LF-Clarification) thread? (Some specifics help; a link would nail it down.) If so, I don't understand how a photo taken on 135 film fits into this forum.

Yes, that's the thread, in the News subforum.

This subforum (key words: Everything Else) is a new forum for non-large-format image threads, which we've moved out of the lounge. We have also tightened slightly what goes in the large-format image subforum.

(Some specifics help; a link would nail it down.) If so, I don't understand how a photo taken on 135 film fits into this forum.Quite straightforward. A photo taken on 135 film was not made with a large format camera, newly defined here as 4x5 or larger. Therefore, it goes in this new "Everything Else" category.

PS 7-1/2 hours after Will asks his question, Rick posts the answer 60 seconds before I do while I'm composing. Thanks for making me look redundant, Rick. :D

Funny story, I own the Speed Graphic from the USS Alabama. It still works awesome too, fantastic camera to shoot with.
