Very confusing. For decades, medium format has been larger then 35mm (or digital equivalent). And large format is 4X5 inch film. Don't think there even is such a thing as a lager format SLR. Looks like they have created their own definitions.

Your comment got me interested, and a brief search suggests that there aren't any large format SLRs.

I guess that means you have to bring a medium format SLR. All those time-wasting, amateurish 8" x 10" sheet film users will fortunately be excluded!

Well, I just looked up the tour details http://www.lowerantelope.com/aboutTheTour.php and it says

"Photographer's pass is 2 hours in duration. One photo pass for each individual with the required equipment. You can purchase the pass at the booth. The REQUIRED equipment are a SLR camera, medium or large format WITH a tripod. No guide is provided for the photographer, but a Canyon Monitor will check on you periodically for questions or assistant.

Things to bring:

• SLR camera (medium or large format) required
• Extra film or memory cards.
• Batteries
• Tripod required
• Plastic bag (for windy days to protect camera or lens)"

Seems a bit stupid, but an m4/3 is not an SLR (bolding is theirs, not mine).
