    Guys, give him a break. Remember, he's shooting 5x4 film and it may be different than our 4x5.

    Depends on where on the planet you're shooting. In the northern hemisphere, it will look upside-down vertical 4x5, in the southern hemisphere, rightside up 4x5. The image will look 5X4 left only at the equator, facing west, or 5X4 horizontally right facing east. For everything in the subtropics, you need one of those revolving backs like on the old Deardorff special.
