Ok, time once again for the eternal question:
Which camera would you recommend and why?
Pretty much the gamut.... outdoor/day-hikes for landscape etc...
Studio for still lifes and fine-art modelling.
Possibly some light architectural.
4x5 (would consider 5x7 with a reducing back if there are good reasons)
light weight... but rigid is more important.
Usable with 400mm lenses, but most likely lens will be normal length (210ish)
I'm not going to spend money just to spend money or for cachet, but I'm willing to pay what it takes for quality and features.
I think a monorail will fit the bill better than a technical or field, but nothing is out of the question here. I'm willing to be convinced either way.
I have a camera in mind.... but I don't want to bias any opinions from the people here who use LF all the time.
Any comments or suggestions on what I should be looking for/at would be greatly appreciated!
