Why do I want a 4×5 camera?

I struggle to use my Hasselblad as much as I’d like to. Being out and about with a 6 yr old really demands a good AF system for the inevitable single handed shooting required.

So 4×5 seems like nice to have, but no real purpose.

I still want one.

Maybe the solution is a press-style camera? The modern travel 4×5’s offer something of a halfway house. The inconvenience of larger formats, but lacking the ability/hassle of camera movements. Of course I could just build a wood box and get started. That would force procuring a lens, film holders and developing gear. I’d be sloping down the slope well by then.
