    Square format

    Hi all,

    I would like to know which medium format bodies/systems that have square format beside Hasselblad?

    I still have an issue with focusing with my Hassy and i can't go to buy all screens to test them and then no guarantee, so i think i may ignore it and buy another medium format that has square format and see if it will be better, so any recommendations?

    Any of the Yashica TLRs. Great little cameras, and not too expensive.

    hmmmmmm, wow, many options or recommendations, should i buy them all, LOL

    I forgot i have Holga, but i don't use this one seriously, only for fun, so it is not a main camera to be used.

    In fact i was looking at Rollei and Bronica mostly, but i can look at other options such as Fujifilm GF670 and Mamiya 6 and even Mamiya Cxxx, but, is there any film back for Mamiya RZ that can be used as square rather than i shoot at 6x7 and crop it?

    There are 6x6 backs for the RB/RZ cameras, not sure how common they are though.
    But if 6x6 is your primary goal an RZ would probably not be the best choice, because of it's weight and size.

    I have 3 Rolleiflexes with Maxwell screens - older and newer models - and find composing and focusing with the flip up magnifier to be very easy.

    Your TLR's (Twin Lens Reflex) are generally a square 6x6cm format. Mamiya C22, C220, C330, Seagulls, Yashica MAT's, 124G, etc.
    Thank you.
