View Camera

Format Comparison

The real advantage of the view camera is the larger film size. Film can only resolve a certain amount of detail per square inch and therefore, the larger the film size the more detail that the subject can be record in . 

Below is a comparison with 35 mm film.

2.5" x 3.75" is five times larger
4" x 5" is thirteen times larger 
10" x 8" is fifty three times larger
