    No. And neither are my 2x3 Graphics and 2x3 Cambo.

    By local standards, all are medium format.

    It is unfortunate as I think all people who shoot with View Cameras have a lot to offer.

    If it has bellows and movements we tend to let it slide.

    I thought the 6x9 Horseman did qualify because it is a camera with all the movements

    My personal belief is that Large starts at 6x12 (which is a slightly cropped 4"x5" frame) 6x17 covers as much surface area as 4x5, and is as wide as 5x7..

    6x9 is medium format, but as Edward said, anyone shooting a view camera has alot to offer on this forum, do not let the fact that you shoot medium format deter you from contributing.

    Not enough area, though. There was a bellows for some 35mm or other that had all the movements, did that make 35mm large format? The oldtime definition was anything smaller than 4x5 was medium format.

    Who cares? They are just things that make pictures.

    So are cellphone cameras.

    Well, the mods may take down his pictures. There's a "safe haven for small formats" thread in the lounge though.

    If it's any consolation, every photo I have posted before this was shot on 4x5, so it's not like I'm trying to sneak in. :-)
