A Nice Intro to 8x10

I have seen a renewed interest in the largest image sizes lately (4x5, 5x7, and 8x10). I love to shoot my 8x10 and scan the neg on my flatbed... 1 to 1. Makes a big file that prints like a dream at 8x10 to 16x20 (after Photoshopping the hell out of it). Getting a scan at the lab renders a much superior neg for printing a more realistic image. This is a good intro piece, and we will have more.
Paul Butzi Photography: "One if the biggest hurdles to getting started in large format photography is that often people contemplating buying their first view camera have no idea of how the thing is actually used in practice, and thus have very little idea of what format they'll like, how much of some movement is enough, how much bellows draw is needed, and so on."
