    I had mine out today and got some great shots, the only thing is, I need a portrait and close up kit.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.

    I have looked at cameras like the 195 but find them fragile. I would not want to haul that thing around. I am not the nicest to my gear as it is a tool.

    I climb trees, ladders, fire escapes, crawl through bushes and all around rough on myself and my cameras and the 100, 190, 250 & 360 that I use have always been up to the challenge. The only thing to look out for is if you load a pack in, use it all and don't let it set up with dirty rollers they will create strange effects on the film but that is the same with any of the Polaroid equipment.

    My polaroid 360 (with two extra lenses and RF flash) was $35 and is rugged. Give it shot. It's pretty cheap and gives darn good results.

    The smaller camera won't take a Polaroid back

    ok, I have been thinking more and more, and I am probably just going to go with a view camera. I have been looking into the linhof kardan series (the older ones) I really like the kardan Bi but it only shoots polaroids in the portrait position unless you get a spacer, but it is hard to find. I also donít know how what back holds the 3.25x4.25 pack film. Can you tell tell me which one? Also I canít find which cameras in the kardan series can use a polaroid back with out an adaptor.
