Here's a forum where roll film folks can show how they see towns and cities.

I'll start with a curbside scene in London.

Nice comp and tonal scale. I was looking at a Cambo Wide this weekend. But it had the 47mm and a 6x9 back. I want a 6x12 back for sure since I already have a 6x9. Are you happy with the 75mm and this format?

Wonderful... perfect moment... beautifully executed...

I like the 75 on 6x12 because 75 is "normal" for 6x6, thus ...perspective... is also "normal".
6x12 format simply crates a wider image, but with "normal" perspective.

Thanks. I think I'd want the 65mm. I'm use to it now on my 6x9.

615 format holds to the classic 1:2.5 ratio as on 7x17" & 8x20" banquet cameras.

Very nice example of decaying smaller towns. Cairo has a particularly sad story though, race riots tore the city apart while around the same time it's historic strategic position on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers became less important in the era of truck shipping.
