Learn to use a 4x5 for snap shooting

Here is a good thread about snap shooting on 4x5:
Technika as portrait camera

#9 and #10 gives me a lot of inspiration.

I myself found many things to learn when snapping with Byron, those places you never ever think of using 4x5, on tram, bus, in elevator, in ferry, in crowded party.....targets are keeping moving, lights dimmed, and you are alway trying to focus and compose....

But 4x5 snapping is not a totally new concept, press man did that 70 years ago, with Graflex Press camera, but they also used strong flash, and cropped a lot, and print on newspaper is not so important on image quality......
