I've never used 8"x 10" but I have used 4"x 5", but never in colour. I
do like using a 'technical' camera with a large image. But the colour
in the above link is extraordinary. And yet I am seeing it via sRGB.
There is a lesson in there somewhere.

Care to point a link to a digital camera with a sensor that big, and
that can be "twisted" as his?

While there is the undeniable resolution improvement attained with the 8” x
10” sheets, the unique color is the result of the Ilford Cibachrome paper
he uses. It is the demise of that paper, and when his stockpile is finally
depleted is when he will finally abandon his darkroom. That is the finish he
is racing against.
