    Re: LF Clarification

    Jonathon, the fracturing of image threads are decisions made by the users, not by the moderators. Personally, I prefer some division so that I don't have to look through many images of no interest when in a hotel with slow Internet service or using my iPhone.

    People won't agree on the balance, and the moderators have no role in how people choose threads for posting their images. We have less of a role now.

    I think a type of Forum Thread Darwinism is an okay approach to take, plus it generally requires less effort by moderators in trying to herd the cats.

    As QT says, "technically those cameras are Medium Format". We agree with his statement.

    We don't intend to block images or discussion related to those cameras. We just intend to adhere to his categorization when deciding in which forums those images and discussions belong.

    I can see the dilemma, however you (as moderators) need to come up with a solution that alienates the fewest people.

    I do shoot 6x7 & 6x9 the first with a Busch Pressman the latter with an Ensign Selfix 820 I don't consider either to be LF. I do consider the 6x9 back on my Wista 45DX to be LF.

    Something's missing it's not the definition of LF it's the definition of what else is acceptable on this forum, in sub forums

    Suggestions:

    Cameras with movements, there's only been one 35mm, press, field and technical cameras (with movements) using 120 film, ot Quarter plate.

    Cameras shooting 120 films where the negative size is 6x12 or larger


    Thanks Rick for clarifying that 9x12cm is accepted as being 4x5, actually the dynamics are quite different as it's a thinner longer format (when printed).

    Uh, I forgot, one needs to actually post images for this to matter.

    My bad.

    I like the example of Art Sinsabaugh mentioned above. I mean, this guy is definitely schlepping a LF camera around:

    Even if he's cropping to 1-1/8 x 19-3/8 inches:

    "was" carrying one around. RIP 1983. Great images!

    Most could post in LF -- only a few are <4" wide.

    Yes, I know he died in the 1980s, but I'm thinking of the photo of him wrestling with the 12x20" camera in the present tense.
