Hi Simon,
thank you very much for that vignette, it was very helpful and interesting. I'm trying to move on to a 5x4 for landscapes from the regular 35mm DSLR. I completely agree the composition of a 5x4 is an eye-opener. If you decide to put up more technical aspects, particularly about manipulating the bellows and composing perspective shifts, it would really help aspiring 5x4 "tryees" like me.
