    But to show what you can do with 8x10" I have it printed to 60". That's a...

    Re: Are you shooting more than one format

    35mm Digital, 6x6, 6x7, 6x8, 4x5" and 8x10"
    Often scouting with digital, then I come back with film.
    Very selective in 8x10", can't remember even one that I wasn't content with this format.

    Re: Chamonix vs. Xxxxx?

    If you're looking at Arca Swiss Orbital, you might as well consider Sinar. I love the geared yaw free focusing over a plane of the Sinar P2.

    Re: Do you keep a checklist?

    No, ready to go bags for each format. I have a small list of items to add: light meter, film, the Sinar shutter (is always on the 4x5") if using 8x10".
