    Pros:
    - Build quality is typical Fuji. Very hefty build, smooth lens movement, very functional
    - Lens (40mm on this one) is tack sharp and has great contrast
    - The format is lots of fun and give you a lot of negative to play with
    - 21 shots out of 36 roll is more than I expected and makes it feel totally justified
    - changes your shooting habits and is a lot of fun!

    Cons:
    - The tripod mount is waaaaaaay on the corner...what gives? It was all wonky on my tripod
    - Cost me $16 for a set of batteries, which died after two days because I left it on in my pack (no auto-off?)
    - Printing. Who has a holder for these? And how to frame em? Also, you need a MF printing lens for them (these aren't issues for me, per se, but thought I'd throw that out there)
    - More lenses cost quite a lot

    Alright, here are some pics from my recent vacation into the Enchantments Wilderness in Central Washington. We got hammered by a storm.

    Attachment 74871

    These are all Neopan 400 in Pyrocat 1:1:100 for 15 minutes.
    I noticed that at least two of the photographs looked cloudy. Clean the lens before using again.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Beseler and Omega make Xpan neg carriers, I have a brand new Beseler one I have been trying to sell since I now use an LPL. If interested, PM me.

    Get TWO spare batteries for it BEFORE you leave on vacation. Without a battery the camera is an expensive paper weight!

    .

    Beseler does make one for the 4x5 enlargers -cost is a whopping $233.50 from B&H

    They do not make one for the Beseler 23C which I use. So I sent SK Grimes a regular 23C 35mm carrier & a sample xpan negative and had them machine it out to 24x65mm. Cost was $65 back in 2006/2007.
