having been a 4x5 user for a while, i am curious to learn why those of you who have converted to 8x10 prefer 8x10. any input would be helpful. my end product will continue to be 40x50 inch to 80x100 inch prints.
for "atmospheric" landscape imagery (think elger esser), does 8x10 have an advantage over 4x5? i'm hoping the answer is yes in that the tonality and texture of 8x10 is MORE pleasing than 4x5.
my usual process has been to drum scan 4x5s and modify in PS before digitally printing.
my big question:
if i were to move to 8x10 and flatbed scan the film (like with the epson v750, etc), modify in PS and then digitally print, will i be able to produce obviously richer, smoother looking end prints (to the above specs)? for example, will scanned 8x10 at something like 2000dpi (PS will only handle files up to 2GB) make a large digital print superior to drum scanned (much higher dpi) 4x5?
thanks so much.
