    how old are we?

    I've just turned 43 and while I own a 4x5 Galvin, I shoot most often with a Toyo 23G and rollfilm. I started using view cameras a little over 5 years ago and lately, have started feeling an urge to move up to 8x10...

    Joe,

    43 here, started with medium format when I was 13(when I look at Old negs, I think I was more skilled at 13 or at least had better Artistic View, what ever the hell that is) now I'm back into LF for the last 6-7years and enjoying it the last 3-4. As for the "50 year mark" that you mentioned, well I remember when I thought that was REALLY, REALLY, REALLY OLD! Now, I even know a few people that "OLD". As for young people not being involved...... well I think all of us "OLD" people need to keep trying to change that every chance we get. They say "OLD People have a lot to offer" well so do our young people.

    22, started shooting 4x5 in school when I was 19. Missed a year when I got out of school and lost access to all the cameras. Just recently got back into it by purchasing a old Crown Graphic. Never realized how much I enjoy the process of shooting large format untill I didn't do it for a while and then came back to it. Its great.

    I will be 69 in October. Using LF since I attended Ansel Adams workshop in 80 with a 35mm slr. I bought my 4x5 on returning home.

    I just turned 52, and I've been shooting large format since 1982. My interest in photography started with a Pentax Spotmatic in 1968. With age, I've noticed that my equipment is starting to feel heavier to me, especially the old Bogen 3051 and C-1 8x10. I'm glad I've got a light weight wooden Wista 4x5 to fall back on (not literally). I also have a Linhof 5x7, which I'm starting to use, too.

    22. Started shooting when I was 16. I shot a few sheets of 4x5 a few years ago in high school. But the large format bug didn't really get me until this year. I'm a photography major at Massachusetts College of Art in Boston. Took a view camera class this spring and just fell for it, bought a Canham 4x5 on student loans and I've been shooting 5- 20 sheets a week since mid January. Haven't even looked at my 35 lately. Loving it!
