    I'm liking the look of the Ektar shots I've seen so far. Would anyone like to comment on how it compares (positive/negative) to Velvia? I used Kodachrome for years until Kodak killed it in 120, and discovered Velvia 50 and moved to that (except for portraiture), and after spending almost 10 years doing B&W have lately started shooting Velvia 100. It isn't quite the same as the 50, but seems ok so far.

    I like Ektar, but it is also seems to have a "harder" look to it on colors compared to Portra 160. Portra provides a "soft" color palette that works really well with things like sunrise/sunset where there is a pastel type of coloring. I haven't compared it to Provia or Velvia yet, but typically the shots I have done with slide film seem to have a much "wetter" look and to be very saturated. With scenes like this and sunrise/sunset, even with grad nd filters, it would be hard to capture the full range of the scene. Not that it can't be done, I just haven't had enough practice with slide film.

    It depends in how you use a LF camera.

    First a LF shot may have optical 600Mpix equivalent, allowing for insane enlargements.

    Second, Scheimflug is an integral resource in LF cameras, allowing for impressive things.

    Of course one also may use a view camera like if it was an smartphone, and obtaining a similar result, but this is only a particular case.

    Cool.

    I would also say that it affords you a much wider field of view for a given focal length over smaller formats which can translate into greater detail for said equivalent field of view. Ie 75mm on 4x5 is equivalent in terms of field of view to a 21mm on a 35mm format. By default you have better resolution giving greater detail and larger image size for print.
