    m1tch,

    For 'cheap and cheerful' 6X12, Holga has an all plastic model for $90 shipped from Holga Direct. Might seem a bit steep but as said, not many options in that aspect ratio in 120 film size.

    The DaYi 6x12 back for 4x5 cameras is excellent for shooting 6x12.

    I want to see photos!

    Now Lomo's offering two Russian-made, Zenit brand glass lenses for the Belair, a 90 and a 114. No longer just plastic lens quality images, this is beginning to sound interesting.

    I believe that the shutter is in the body too which makes it adaptable to other lenses for those of us who like to modify things.

    It's tempting me too, but I worry about the exposure controls - I don't need 1/10th stop accuracy, but it basically has three shutter speeds plus B IIRC, and the same deal with the apertures, which I think are marked like the old Kodak Brownies - Sun, Partly Cloudy, Overcast, Full Shade. Sounds more like a weather forecast than an exposure control system. But I think the kicker for me would definitely be seeing actual images taken by real people, not the promo shots on the Lomo website.

    Scott... I found a blog with a three part review, but I'm linking to the third review that features a few sample pictures. I'm looking forward to giving the panorama a go with the camera, but it looks like toy camera optics, but the lens has apertures listed, I think, F8, F11, and F16. I've been using the Holga a lot lately, and I've been interested in expanding my plastic camera kit, so this looks like a fun choice.
