I haven't done anything with photography in a long time. Besides the old Graflex, I just have a point-and-shoot digital. I was thinking I could test the shutter speed with some electronics test gear I have: Laser pointer, photo diode and oscilloscope. It should be fun to try.
I wonder about the quality of 4x5 film. It would seem to me that large format should offer much better image quality, compared to 35mm. Just because the film is so much bigger. Does this make sense?
