Clyde Butcher moves to digital (A7R) for some work

Clyde Butcher, master blank and white landscape photographer who specializes in very large prints of the Florida Everglades taken with large format film (often up to 11x14" film), admitted in his latest newsletter that he's moved to digital for some work.

"Well...I think I'm going to have to admit in a public forum that I'm actually growing old. At 72 years old it has become very difficult for me to carry my large format camera gear any distance. That 60 pound backpack hurts my back if I walk to far. Because of this problem, I've decided to try digital. It's certainly a lot lighter to carry on my back! I love photography, and will NOT be giving up large format photography, it just means I may not be able to use the large format camera as often.

Myakka Oak 20 is taken with the Cambo Artus with a digital 36 megapixel Sony a 7R camera and RZ Mamiya lenses. I manipulate the image on my computer, then print the photographs on an Epson Sylus 4800 or 9800 printer. I use archival Ultrachrome K3 ink and print on archival Harman Hahnemuhle paper. The limited edition photograph is then mounted and matted to current archival standards. I sign and number each image."

The photo he's referring to can be seen here:
