    Re: 4X5 OR 8X10 is the question?

    I'm another Wehman guy and think this is a great option for going to the larger format should you dump everything and start fresh with 8x10. Camera is lightweight and durable. However with bellows...

    Re: Arca Swiss B2 Ball Head

    Just a late add - I have the B-2 and use it solely for 8x10. It's mounted on a GT5540S and I don't think there is a more stable platfrom made, period. The dual axies take just a little bit of...

    Telephoto lens recommendation for Toyo 45AX

    Longest lens is currently a 250 Fuji W. Looking for a good telephoto that will get me 480mm or better and still focus with existing bellows in my Toyo AX if such a lens exists.

    Thanks
