    I guess I'm too late, but how about a Graflex? Get a multi-coated Ektar on one (look for the little 'L" in a circle) and you have world class sharpness, plus 24 shutter speeds to fine tune your exposure. Get the 12 exposure (22 or rh-12, Graflex not Graflock) back and you don't need the RB feature (revolving back). Plus you can use sheet film backs as well. They can be found for under 200usd with back if you're just a little bit lucky.

    Yes, but he inquired upon an Internet audience, which means that left field opinions ans suggestions should be expected. I thought that was the point of the Internet...

    The lenses are the "same" as on hasselblad, but with the built in bellows, the macro work - as shown above - is so easy to work with, and that also gives you the opportunity to fit "wrong" lenses on that camera - and focus with it...

    Now that is FUN!!

    Oh yeah! I have an adapter and use a load of old large format lenses with my SL66. Here's an example with an old Radionar lens got for $25 bucks!

    If you want to play with an Imagon or many old lenses, the Rollei SL66 is perfect: shutter and focusing mechanism all part of the camera body, not the lens. The weakness is flash sync speed unless you use one of the in-shutter lenses (80mm and 150mm only). Macro work is a dream as the bellows extension is large and all standard lenses are reversible without accessories.

    No.

    He posed a very specific question, with the expectation that respondents would be polite enough to address it specifically.

    I was totally being sarcastic.

    Hmmmmmm. Seems like the sarcasm is pretty thick about my Bronica choice. If anyone out there wants to sell me their Hasselbland kit or a Rollei 66 kit for the same price that I can get a Bronica SQ-A KIt. Then let me know. If I could afford the good stuff > Then I would most certainly do so. But afew hundred bucks compared to a few grand is a big diffrence to me. I'm not so ignorant that I can't understand the quality issue. I'm sure either the Rollei or the Hasselbland would be a camera for life. But I just don't have the bucks.
    All in all I got my information.

    Thanks

    Hi Lee,

    Nobody is criticizing your choice (that I noticed). We all live with limits.

    The talent and vision of the artist are much more important than the tools used to express them.

    The Bronica SQ-A is a very good choice. I always wanted one but could never afford it.

    If you can afford a Bronica SQ-A then you can afford the good stuff. Not the elite stuff but still good.
