Good morning, I am slowly moving my way up the film / paper size, working with 4x5 pinhole / paper stuff right now as I search for a nice entry level 4x5 LF camera.

Welcome to the forum, Jamie.

After you are a member for 30 days you can check out our for sale section. You can also look at KEH, Ebay and Craigslist for an inexpensive 4x5.

Look up 4x5 and large format cameras on Youtube. There are helpful videos on there that I think you will enjoy.

I also highly recommend the Steve Simmons book, "Using the View Camera". It's easy to understand and really helped me to get started.
