ok here it is, I'm invested now, 2 years in the lf world and finally getting the hang of this crazy camera. It is really fun but I feel as though I putting a lot of extra work for a bigger negative and am not seeing enough of a return in the image quality. I'm wondering why my images don't have better tonality, gradient and sharpness. they don't look like large format images?
the gear I'm using is:
4x5 chamonix (which is an amazing tool)
210 symmar - main lens
150 caltar - recently purchased used very little
arista 400 / arista dev.
hp5 / d76 1:1
Now on: ( I really thought this was going to do the trick )
The best result I've gotten was with ektar 100 - lab processed, however, it has not been printed just scanned.
The image quality is good but I was under the impression that it was going to be a huge difference from the 6x6 format, this has not been the case. My 6x6 image look equally as strong as the 4x5.
Any advice or thoughts?
