[filmscanners] RE: shoot first, fix it later


4x5 and larger are used for many reasons. First and foremost are the
camera adjustments and perspective corrections available with a good
monorail camera. Second is the quality available from LF negs and
chromes. There is a kind of synergy between lens and film that occurs
with larger sizes. This is replicated in a way by the output from a good
scanning back.
