    New ULF Camera sub-forum

    A new sub-forum has been created for Cameras - ULF (Ultra Large Format) and Accessories. We're using a diagonal of 13" or larger as the "ULF" criteria. Lenses remain as a single sub-forum, as ULF-capable lenses may also be required for non-ULF formats when extreme movements are employed.

    Not making a ULF lens section was a wise decision in my view.

    Although the new ULF Cameras section is planned ( I think) as a big brother parallel to the present camera section, it already has image contributions. Surely, these should still go in the appropriate further down the section list?

    Otherwise we will have an ULF nude, landscape, ruins etc. image sub- sections in ULF Cameras!

    The situation is becoming impossible!

    The ULF Camera section is being used for everything and anything to do with ULF, including DIY and FS!

    Please post a sticky to define exactly what ULF cameras and access. means!

    Can you be specific? I did not see a F/S ad.

    If the "tiny format" area can have its own image threads and such, I still don't see why the ULF area shouldn't be able to have its own as well, makes a lot more sense to have an ULF image thread than a tiny format image thread on a LF forum.

    And with the lenses argument, you can use a 90mm SA lens on a 35mm SLR with a bellows adapter, but you're still going to call that LF and list it in the LF section. So why would a lens like a 35" petzval or 1100 XXL Art lens be listed under LF when clearly the majority of users will be ULF users, not 4x5 users... So I still don't see why there shouldn't just be a TOTAL ULF sub-section with all the various lens and equipment and image sharing all in its own area.

    BUT I'm glad there is a new ULF section at all, don't get me wrong, I just personally think that keeping it so specific to only camera and accessories which is only part of the ULF arena limits the usefulness of the area.

    In other words, I think I'm with Monty...
