I started shooting APS-C digital, then tried 35mm film with a Nikon F6, and was amazed by the image quality of slides on a light table. I continued to MF with a Mamiya 6mf, and the joy of seeing those large slides is difficult to describe (I was ecstatic). Following this trend, it was only a matter of time that I decided to take the plunge into LF, so I have just received a Chamonix 045N-2 that I have yet to try. Yesterday night I loaded my sheet holders, so I expect to use it this weekend!
I have been following this forum a long time, and so far all my questions have been answered by existing posts, saving me from actually asking. It is now time I introduce myself!! Once I get my confidence with the format, it will probably be time to meet with some LF shooters in Massachusetts using the Groups & Meetings section.
