I am super excited. I have been asked to take a picture for a large coffee table book and the photo will be a two page spread. Within the next three months I am going to be shooting a landscape photo of an old religious city. I am supposed to take a photo in early morning light on which the client will do a LOT of post work - add and remove elements, color correct etc.
My brief is to shoot this on the best possible format.
1. What should I use? Obviously it should be large format but since I do not know anything about large formats, 'backs' etc., where do I start figuring out how to proceed?
2. Which lens would translate into a 25/35mm of our full frame Canon? I would shoot at f11 so do not need a lens which is great wide open.
3. Would my heavy Gitzo and Arca be stable enough for this or I would need something else?
Above all I need to know which is the best large format system available today to shoot at ISO 100/125.
I want to stay digital and not shoot on film.
All help sincerely appreciated.
