Hello again everyone,
A few days ago I posted a question regarding 8x10 camera choices. Now, after some fairly disappointing internet searching, I am starting to think it might not be worth it.
After thinking about it, I realize that there are so many more expenses that I had been blind to in my quest for a cool camera and lens... Namely, film cost, scanning cost (no more Imacon scanning, have to outsource drum scanning which, as you all know, is insanely expensive), etc, etc...
Of course, there is always the argument that there is nothing like an 8x10 negative, and there probably won't be a digital equivalent that is even remotely near my financial capability for some time.
Any thoughts on the longevity of 8x10 photography, film, and the merits of jumping in at this point when I've long since been immersed in a 4x5-exclusive practice would be greatly appreciated.
Maybe just renting whenever I need to shoot could suffice.
Thanks for humoring me and my ramblings.
