Ok maybe it’s not the best analogy but we’re not kidding ourselves, right? I can’t be sure that my still young kids will be able to do LF photography when they reach my age.

    Let’s enjoy the ride though!
    At 75, I'm sure film will outlive me. And I just bought a Chamonix 4x5. So I have faith. Or stupidity.

    Plenty of time to jump to 8x10, ULF, get into carbon printing and all those fun things... even WP if you really wanted ;-)

    Well it arrived today! Hugo emailed me Saturday evening saying it shipped and it arrived 3 business days later from China. This is beautiful Camera! The fit and finish is perfect and it is just the right size. Not too big and not too small. By the way, everything I orderEd,; film holders, camera, and wide angle bellows, came in its own carrying case. Canít wait to shoot some film.

    Alan, Although I don't have one.... they are eminently practical. I have a darkroom colleague who only shoots 35mm (mostly Leica)....and all he prints is essentially 6.5 x 8.5" on 8x10 paper. He just doesn't make bigger prints. Besides enlarging 5x7" I've contact printed both 5x7" and 8x10" and I think whole plate is a real sweet spot for contact printing.
