    You bought a camera and now wonder if you got a deal and want confirmation whether to keep or return it from a group of strangers? Why not do the research first before bidding?

    Re: 4x10 Photography

    Since you only need a lens to cover 4x10 you don't always 'need' an 8x10 lens, If you mark the GG with a sharpie you can use front rise to compose the image on the top half of the GG.
