    Interesting design, I have three. One is mint, another is waiting for some cleaning after the son dunked it in the St Croix from a canoe and another is a parts donor. Remarkably all three advance film correctly. Great all season walkabout MF. Regards.

    How about one camera that can shoot everything from 6x4.5 to 6x17?

    The Fuji G-series rangefinders have gotta be low on the list. They look cool in the photos, but in person they are oversized plasticy things that look like clown cameras.
    The Mamiya Press is also a funky looking thing.

    What do you guys think of the Graflex Norita 66? or for that matter the combat graphic?
    or the agiflite?
    or the original Panon (medium format swing lens)?

    ..lol i could go on for hours..

    Kowa 66?
    Graflex XL?
    Alpa 6x12! -yeah those are drop dead gorgeous cameras.. buy me one please?

    ..but yeah, the Hasselblad really does it for me.

    Probably been said before but I will say it again:
    the coolest MF camera is the one you own and have learned to use well.

    I think with their name and styling, the Hasselblad ranks at the top.

    But, Mamiya Press is also cool. It's reasonable in price, and it's a range finder. It has interchangeable backs and a decent selection of lenses: 50mm, 65mm, 75mm, 100mm, 150mm, and an f5 250mm. There are two others; but, the 90mm and 127mm don't have their own finder, and none of the internal finders have the same field of view.

    Imo, if you want to be cool around the younger bunch, a TLR beats everything in the cool department, it's so different to anything else that it just stand out.
    It doesn't have to be a Rolleiflex 2.8F, even though they are the coolest ever, from a APUG-nerd standpoint. (white face is ultracool if you are a collector, but I digress....)

    A seagull, cord' or a yashica TLR will do perfectly well, and if you really want to impress the Lomo-crowd, bring a Chinese You Yi TLR =)

    The Soviet counterpart of the Voigtländer Bessa I and II is also a camera that would fit nicely on the "cool wall", the Moskva V, even though quality and ease of use may be a whole different story ^^
