    Would older ulf threads move there?
    I'm asking cos, in the case of someone searching for answers on ULF(down the line), may not look at the other sections ?

    Yes, as we find them. They are moving silently as we sleep.

    Yep. At my age, I try not to dwell on "horizontal". ;-)

    Monty, there is nothing preventing one from illustrating a point about a camera or form using an image, even in the camera forums. That is not the same thing as "image sharing", which exists for the sake of the image only. And there is nothing preventing one from linking to posts in the image forums when a topic about the camera comes up.

    The point of the ULF sub-forum is not to advocate for it, but rather to provide a resource for those who use it. Those folks need no persuasion of the format's validity. Others who might be in a position to be persuaded may not venture into the ULF subforum at all, but might still be drawn by an image they see in one of the image forums. This helps tie this community together instead of fracturing it too much into special interests. That is always a tricky balance.

    If someone wants to provide a list of links to image threads or posts that particularly illustrate the advantages of the use of ULF cameras and formats, then I will make it a sticky in the ULF forum so that those who are starting an exploration know where to look.

    So a person who is investigating the possible use of a ULF format is not exactly encouraged by this phrasing to be invited to inquire about said format, no?


    Just pointing out how the quoted statement might come across to some...

    I think this is the place to ask any question you want about ULF. Most all of us started small and worked our way up. I know I'm learning a lot all the time with all the postings here and elsewhere on the forum. Anyone can PM me if they have a question regarding ULF. I my know the answer or I may not. I may know who does though.

    The continued existence of this forum, and the resource it provides, quietly advocates for all LF formats, with no favoritism for any particular format. Members are, of course, free to express their enthusiasm for their format of choice in their posts, within the spirit of the forum guidelines.
