    No I wasn't. I am aware of such a thing but I always thought it to be on the wrong side somehow (though of course, where should it be, when there is the cocking lever on the right side..).

    The Hasselblad is most definitely hand-holdable, and was quite commonly used that way for fashion and other rapidly-changing subjects.

    However, I always use mine on a tripod for highest possible quality.

    My favourite method of using the RB67 is with a left hand grip and a waist level finder. It can be used hand held without the grip (I did it for about a year) but it's much better with one.

    The grip fits the Mamiya 645 and the C220/C330 TLRs as well.

    The more I think of it and read here and there the more I think my criteria ridiculous.. Maybe it is really a little bit foolish to try to use a big SLR hand held and they are meant to be use on a tripod all the time.. Which would leave me with a choice of a Fuji GW/GSW or a GA camera..

    Not true at all - try one with the left hand grip.

    I shot weddings for years with a C330 TLR and a pentaprism - fairly close to the RB67 in weight and size.

    Not so. I use it hand held all the time.
    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.

    :-) You guys never make anything easy.. :-)
    I'm quitting this rambling, leaving all the possibilites open, waiting what camera will "fall into my lap".. Will it be a small-ish fuji 645? Or a square bronica? Maybe an RB again - perhaps with a 6x8 back this time? I wonder..

    If I saw one for nice price I'd jump on it without hesitation - as far as I have read it ought to be the perfect compromise between the size of the negative and the size of the camera
