Polaroid 100 or 4x5?

Messagepar tutejszy » lun. 29 octobre 2012 / 14:53 pm

Hi all,

so inspired by this gargantuic Polaroid project http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qt-Nraqu ... re=related I am looking around for Polaroid. But I thing this 100 format is to tiny - 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 to have it on the wall. So I was thinking about 4x5 format, but worrying if there is a camera which is portable like let's say medium format? or this is absolutely cumbersome device, tripod and all this stuff?

Land cameras ale closest to my feelings but don't like lenses in these. All of these are like plastic f/8 What do you think? Is it worth to get into 4x5? this is tempting - a big piece of photo out of camera, but can I carry it somewhere and just shoot on the street with it or too much trouble?

all the best,
Michal

Shooting with a 4x5 is never easy. The camera is heavy, big, not very precise exept if you use the glass on the back. The most easy for this is a 110A/B converted in a 4x5 use...
And also, the 4x5 film is less easy to find.
Faire et ne pas être...

just learned that Fuji stopped production of 4x5 film. What is left is experimental 8x10 B/W material from Impossible guys for a whooping 190 USD per pack :( It's not easy to be instant nowadays :(

yes, you're right ...

is not the good time to invest in 4X5 ... there is no films anymore ... so chose 100 format without hesitation ... it's still produced and work well ... with a large choice of cameras ...
