I'm interested in trying large format photography and would appreciate some advice on equipment choice.
I've read Steve Simmons' book and have some idea about camera movements and think that I would like to try a monorail camera.
My proposed main use for this camera would be portraiture so I think a 210mm, 240mm or 300mm lens would best suit me (I like to use 70mm to 110mm focal lengths in 35mm format).
Geared movements would appeal to me over non-geared movements.
I'm considering cameras such as the Cambo SC or Cambo Legend as they have a full range of movements on both standards but are cheaper than Sinar, Arca Swiss etc. .
I think that I can live without yaw-free movements, but would be interested to hear opinions on the benefit of this feature.
Can anyone make any recommendations based on the above?
