I want to start getting into Large Format. My plan in to buy a 8X10 Tachihara. Is this a good camera?
I'm an enthusiast. I don't plan to give it a professional bashing. My interests are portraits and landscapes, so it doesn't need to be built like a tank. Is t here a lot of difference between the Tachihara and say, the Wisner?
With a budget of two lenses, what would be the ideal pair? A 450mm and a 250mm?
Does the Tachihara have a sunken lens panel to take Wide Angles? If not, what's the minimum it can take? What would be the equivalent of this in 35mm?
At the portrait end, would I need a triple extension to do head and shoulders?
My immediate plan is to do contact prints, but eventually to invest in an enlarg er, what's the least expensive 8x10 enlarger?
Thanks in advance! Yaakov Asher Sinclair
