Of course, if you get a whole Speed Graphic there's no end to the fun you can have.

Given limited time, space, and budget, would I have any fun?

It seems like I'd be spending a big chunk of $$$ per photo on film and chemicals, which would stress me out, rather than be a source of fun.

$35 lens was really ideal, since it's less than movie tickets for a family, and provides many hours of fun.

That's a serious question. What would I do with a camera like that, given finite budget? I could afford one, but running costs seem high.

I agree that actually shooting pictures with a Speed Graphic would be expensive; I wasn't thinking of budgetary limitations when I made that statement.

But I was just remembering working with those 4X5 negatives and chromes. It was a whole different world.
