Re: neither helps with judging light quality

Eamon, I think you've expressed my sentiments better that I could myself. A good test shot is useful for fine tuning EVERYTHING. When I look back with nostalgia at 4x5 Polaroids, I guess I've forgotten the tedium of purchasing the film, cleaning the rollers, coating the prints etc, etc. etc. But I do remember the beautiful tones and sharpness. Now, as I've said my aging eyes aren't what they used to be, so even if I could get my 4x5 Polaroids back--I'm not sure they'd look as sexy nowadays! So I guess that idea of using a wifi driven tablet or EVF in review mode is as good as it's going to get. And, oh yes it was the Polaroid 195, now I remember. And I also remember I dumped that camera after a while because it's added bulk to my shooting gear got to be a PITA. I guess I'm going to start looking at some mirrorless cameras one of these days. Thanks to all for your input...........Jeff Barlowe
