This is an image of my Sinar Norma 4×5 view camera. It’s my first step to large format photography. It was a normal evolution since I started with 35mm film and then upgraded to medium format all the way from 645 to 6×17.
A large format camera is a completely different piece of equipment from any other type of camera. It will sure make my medium format cameras to look like point & shoot !!
Unfortunately I still haven’t received the lensboards which are required to mount a lens. And since my first pack of FP4 4×5 sheets was accidentally exposed to light (its a long story !!) I am also waiting for a new pack of sheets to start using it. Normally, sometime next week I will have my first results (if I manage of course to do a proper film development).
In the meantime I am just reading the excellent book “Using the View Camera” book from Steve Simmons.
