    Yes, you are correct and I do have a 120 folder, but can't remember which one.

    Started with a Century Graphic, which yielded some nice 2X3 sheet negatives. But the lens shutter locked up, and I couldn't figure how to adjust the rangefinder for a longer lens. And looking thru the bellows is like looking at the starry heaven on a clear night.
    Got a couple of Mamiyas (C330) and still use them for indoor shots (eg, portraits and figure studies). But, with hanging them around my neck, I felt like I was developing a vulture's swayed long neck.
    Now I am using a Bronica SQ-A (a poor man's Hassy), and really like the results. Only problem is long exposures - can do them but with a poorly designed kludge solution.

    My vote still goes to the Horseman SW612 and SW617 series.

    From the uniquely cool perspective, I have to also go along with the Fujifilm GF670.

    A modern-day medium format folding bellows camera? With a choice of either 6x6 or 6x7 formats? And a killer modern meter? Brand new? No wear and tear? Under warranty? Parts and service easily and cheerfully available? With a modern Fuji EBC coated lens that is so sharp the photos will make your eyes bleed? And a killer accurate electronic shutter? That is so quiet it's impossible to even hear from six inches away? And the whole tomato can be slipped into an oversized coat pocket?

    Geez, only a few years ago who would have thought such a thing would even be available ever again? Me thinks the 'cool' factor needle has been pinned. Gads, in a pinch the thing is even a serviceable chick magnet that doesn't require puppy food...

    laugh

    In my humbug opinion if one does not have an active sense of humor one should perhaps not shoot film. My vote is for the Praktisix with a 180mm f2.8 Olympic Sonnar and pentaprism. Takes fabulous photos, too.
    Does anyone know why Yankee Doodle put a feather in his cap, as the old tune says? Because he thought it made him look cool. And he spilled his blood so we could be free. Think about it. Nothing wrong with a small diversion once in a while.

    Rollei TLR cameras..

    I would say as others.. The Rolleiflex TLR camera with light meter. I get approuched all the time in regards on a cool and beautiful it is. I have mine pimped out with gourgous Eveready leather body case and leather brown shoulder strap.

    I think my Medalist looks like it could produce steam-punk death rays.

    If you were really pimped out with Rolleis then you would have a normal focal length Rollei, a wide angle Rollei and a tele-Rollei hanging around your neck. Now THAT would be pimped out in Rolleis!

    Good point.. That would be a beautiful piece of neck jewelry.
