Not only that but if size/weight is an issue due to having to carry equipment over a long distance or multiple days think about how many rolls of 120/220 fit in the same space as one or two 4x5 film holders. If we're taking about color film that could be something like 100-200 shots of 6x7 (6-10rolls of 220) if not more verses 4 shoot of 4x5 when comparing say a Mamiya 7II and 4x5 field camera.
