T Minus 4 days till I get to play with my new camera. I'd say its been a year or two since I realized I wasn't taking the time I should to make the images I know I'm capable of...I know I need to slow down, need to pay attention to composition more....but no matter what I told myself, I would shrug off the tripod, forget the polarizer, and completely ignore the ND's and split grads.....yep I've got it all in the gear bag, but something inside me said eh....whatever ill just bang away at it with my 1D Mark 9 million and forty gazillion frames per second and somewhere in there will be a not so crappy shot. WTF is wrong with me.....I know better. So a little over a year ago I started shooting 4x5. I HAVE NO CHOICE but to go slow with it. The Wisner Tech Field I'm using now was found for a steal, and its a great camera there's no doubt about it, but being Wisner is out of business, accessories have been hard to come by, and those I find are at a premium.

Step in the Chamonix....this little wonder has everything right out of the box. Universal bellows, Graflok back, Bellows extention from 45mm to 395mm! In print its a super little camera and in 4 days I'll know whether or not I made the right choice...

A long time ago I subscribed to the buy a better camera idea and guess what......I WASN'T ANY BETTER....go figure....6 years later and a step back in time to 4x5 film and I'm finally understanding why I didn't understand. Funny how some people get it and then there are the people like me that take forever to figure some things out. I've got a few photography jobs this year, nothing giant, A family members wedding in northern California, and another as a backup shooter for a Wedding in DC in the fall. With that in mind I'm going to be selling all of my Pro Gear (maybe everything).....1DMIII body and such, and just rent a body or two for those shoots. I've carried these things with me to work and such for years for no other reason than to "have them there just in case" and you know what? NOTHING EVER HAPPENED. So they are outa here....I've decided that unless I really get the drive to get out there and do this photography thing full time, that closet of gear is wasting away. I'm gonna keep on shooting the 4x5 as long as film is made, a year into it and i'm finally figuring out BW film, so slide and color negative should be quite an adventure....

As for traveling though.....as much as I'd love to drop some coin on an M9 with a 35mm, I just cannot justify the cost, so I'm heavily looking at the new fujifilm X-Pro 1. It looks like a wonderful little camera, and from what I read and hear from guys like +Zack Arias and +RC Concepcion its changing their worlds too. Time to head on over to +LensProToGo and borrow one of theirs for a few days.
