As far as jewellery goes, it takes real commitment to carry, say, an RB67 round in the hope of a chance shot, even if people think it looks nice slung on their hip. I admire such cojones, without any wish to go in that direction personally.

    If you love nice big negatives, and want to adopt them as a standard, get the lightest medium format camera you can find and leave cool for people who don't mind grooves in their shoulder.
    I happen be one of the crazies who enjoys carrying an RB67 around, I mean it does only weigh 4 or 5 lbs. Just yesterday my best friend and I went on a 2.5 mile hike through the mud and snow I drug along the RB with 90mm, my Gossen Luna Pro F, and 3 rolls of TMAX 100. That's the third or fourth time I've hiked with it and I'm good to go at 1/30 or faster. If I had to get rid of all of my camera but one I'd keep the RB. But I understand those that don't wanna carry a 5 lb. camera.

    Not in any order because theres no way I could decide but...

    -GX680, sheet film sort of scares me so if I wanted to be able to do some minor movements it'd be a good choice. I also think the fact that it shoots 6x8 is rare, unique and cool, not 6x7, not 6x9, FRICKEN IN BETWEEN AT 6x8! So cool...I suppose its a revival of one of the older medium formats that got lost (forgot the specifics). But yeah I'd like to rent a GX680 some time....Idk how much movements you could do with it compared to 4x5 or 8x10 or even how much of an improvement over a tilt shift lens on a 35mm it would be, I imagine itd be well in between but I'd have to see it to believe it

    -Mamiya RZ67 Pro, that waist level viewfinder makes my mouth water and its looks are amazing. I'm into cinematography and video as well and while RED cameras aren't my favorite the RED Epic was based on cameras like the RZ67 and Hassleblad 500 series and its a very comfortable way to shoot, especially at slower shutter speeds.

    -Fuji GW690 aka the Texas Leica (say it with a Texas accent or it doesn't sound as cool!) hehe I'm biased I have one on the way, but I find the idea of just enlarging a range finder for 120 in 6x9 format as just simple but genius. As much as I love the RZ67 or the various other MF systems, sometimes I don't want a system…I just want a camera that takes sharp pictures if I do everything right. It looks so silly pressed against someones face if they aren't a giant though..I love it! I'm used to SLR's so I suppose the weight/size aspect won't be that big of a deal.

    I have others, but the coolest must be the 6x9 Graflex SLR with roll-film holder and 127mm Ektar. It's in great working condition and sure draws lots of looks.

    Texas Leicas are lighter weight than Nikon F4, F5 and Canon EOS3.
