The latest information on large-format cameras is clearly presented in this updated guide, which covers all the technical aspects of using the view camera, including the Zone System. New and updated information on films, Polaroid transfer images, and yaw is included, along with an expanded discussion of lens design, the Scheimpflug Rule, obtaining perspective control, and working with unusual formats. A stunning gallery of architectural, still life, and portrait photographs taken by 24 view camera artists highlights the camera's creative applications.

Review: Using the View Camera

User Review  - Jedrek Kostecki - Goodreads
