Lens Rentals | Blog - Optics of Zooms vs Primes
A great zoom is not as good as a good prime at comparable apertures, but it’s plenty good, especially in the center of the image.
Zooms have more variation, and most copies of a given zoom will vary at different focal lengths. If someone asks me for the best copy of a zoom, my first response would always be ‘at which focal length?’ In this case, the sharpest copy at 200mm is not the sharpest at 70mm.

Large Format View Camera Movements — Ray Larose
*One little trick to know if you're within the limits of your image circle is to look through the four cut-out corners of your ground glass while the lens is wide open. If you can see the light in the back of the lens, then the image will be hitting your film in that corner when you expose it.

Focus on the near, tilt to the far, focus on the near, tilt to the far..

Line from Film plane and Focus Plane - make lens plane intersect for focus. Where those two lines cross is where a third line begins (this is called the Scheimpflug Intersection) and continues through your focal plane - and that's the angle your lens needs to be to have the dog and building in sharp focus. Again, roughly half the angle in this example.

Chamonix 45n-2 Review (Large Format) — Ray Larose
Graflox 120 roll film back (like I did on the Graflex) and and have the option to shoot 6x6, 6x7, 6x9 or even 6x12 on here. One caveat to note on these backs is they are notorious for not holding the film 100% flat.  Be sure to do your research and get a good one.

What wireless trigger to use with AB1600? | PhotoNet Community
if you want to be able to remotely control the power levels, rather than just trigger the strobes. If you do (and it's a very liberating thing, to not have to walk over to the strobe to adjust power!), then you will want to use the CSR+ or CSRB+ triggers (depending on whether you want battery powered, or in-line AC powered ... which makes sense, since you'll always need AC going to the strobes anyway), and at least the CST trigger. The CyberCommander unit can come later when you want to start doin the remote power levels.
