Not a big fan of them. They are complicated and expensive, it just takes too much time the field, compared to the time it takes in PS with a minimal loss of quality.

I've tried one, and while if I were doing a lot of architectural work I might invest, I couldn't justify it otherwise - and I don't think they compare to the flexibility offered by view cameras.

For my purposes, the perspective control offered by Photoshop is sufficient ... and a lot cheaper!

Dean nice pic! What kind of scanner do you use? And you do shoot medium format slides, correct?

The quality is just stunning!
