Large Format

I shoot small, medium, and large format cameras. The main reason I shoot large format is because I cannot get large format image quality from smaller format cameras. I primarily use large format cameras for architecture, landscapes, large group portraits, and product shots.


The main large format camera I use is the Calumet 4x5 CC-402 that was designed for wide-angle lenses. The wide-angle lenses I use are:


135mm Fujinon f/5.6 (38mm equiv)

90mm Fujinon f/5.6 (28mm equiv)

65mm Schneider f/8 Super-Angulon (18mm equiv)

47mm Schneider f/5.6 Super-Angulon XL (13mm equiv)


The camera has a rising and falling front, a sliding front, a center-axis front tilting movement, and center-axis front swinging movement. It has a center-axis rear tilting movement, a center-axis rear swinging movement, and a sliding rear movement. It does not have a rising and falling rear.


It has a revolving film back that allows easy change in orientation from landscape to portrait. The back also accepts a 6x7cm roll-film holder.
