Re: Is Large Format necessary?

dario - i spent most of my career with a 4x5 monorail view camera doing recordation photography (architecture) for the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) and Historic American Building Survey (HABS) for the collections of the Library of Congress. the work was all done in BW, hand processed to archival standards, all hand processed fiber-base prints. for this kind of work, the LOC does not accept anything smaller than 4x5 negatives, nor larger than 8x10 negatives, ie large format is a requirement.
