The Delights of ULF

Consider, if you will, the manifold delights of using an ULF camera.

  • It's endless fun;
  • It's naturally, natively exclusive;
  • You'll have no extra money to dissipate on wine, women, and song or other sundry vices;
  • No need for a hair shirt—you've already got one!
  • Your equipment absolutely cannot become obsolete
  • Based on the format you choose, you're in a niche within a niche withing a niche within a niche*
  • Surefire conversation starter!
  • Instant membership in the grandest of photographic traditions.

As far as I can see, the only downside is that the word "coverage" becomes part of your worries forever.


*Your format, within ULF, within LF, within film photography.

That's the nice thing about contact prints: they're ALL 100% crop, everywhere.
