First off, if this post is contravening any rules then please can someone remove it and accept my apologies.

It appears that although the http://www.lf-photo.org.uk/forum/ is still online, there does not appear to be any activity for reasons unknown. Even the Administrators are not responding to any of my emails or private messages.

It has been said to me in the past that large format photography in the UK is thin compared to say the USA and Canada, reasons for this may because of the physical size of these countries compared to the UK I don't know.

I have been thinking about setting up a UK Large Format forum for sometime to try and bring UK users closer together and also offer a place where they can buy and sell gear to each other.

Earlier today, I spent a few hours setting up a new forum and registering a new domain name to see how it progresses.

For anyone who maybe interested in the new forum I have setup, the url is http://www.5x4.co.uk

PS.
Please remove this post if it is contravening any rules

I shall sign up as well Ian, sounds interesting.

I am a member of the US large format forum but tbh I find it so US centric that no one xomments on any shots taken anywhere else. This sounds more like it.

Well I've never owned a LF camera and don't think I ever will, is there any point me signing up or does it help to get the numbers up?
