Rhode Island, compared to THIS:

scroll right down to the bottom, to see what as far as I know is the biggest
handheld camera ever built.

Actually I've been running tests with my Super Graphic 4x5 and it's really
just fine for street photography. I can fire and be ready to shoot again in
7 seconds, using a grafmatic back. This is limited to 6 shots per magazine,
but I'm also experimenting with a polaroid back, just pulling out the sheets
without developing them. I think my speed will be a bit slower, around 15-20
seconds to shoot and reload with this.
