backs that work with 4x5s. Cheap they are not.
I'm continually impressed by the exponential developments in digital photography but while image quality continues to improve, I don't see anyone bringing in the age-old ability for perspective correction available on our old 4x5's.
Recently, true distortion-free wide angle lenses have come on the market but that still doesn't give the architectural photographer the range of adjustments available on his fifty-year-old camera.
Does anyone make something like Nikon's old shift lens (can this be used on the new Nikon SLR's?)or is anyone developing a camera with digital controls like a 4x5? I'm sure there is a market for this and it doesn't appear to me to be a great tecnological hurdle. In the meantime we have to haul a 10 MP digital and twenty pounds of gear to get the shot we need.
