I have just about decided to purchase a Tachihara 4 x 5 field camera as my first view camera. I almost exclusively shoot landscapes. Most of the time I day hi ke, or backpack, to nature areas for shooting pictures.
I would like to use it primarily with a roll film back (to save film costs and not be required to carry film holders with me). Can you use a 6 x 9 roll film b ack with the Tachihara? Which are the best ones to use with it? Will it take a Toyo back? Is there a problem with the camera shifting focus when a roll film b ack is inserted? Is this problem mitigated by certain roll film backs but not o thers? Any shared experiences or advice is appreciated.
I find the terminology for roll film backs confusing. What does it mean to be a Graflock back for instance?
