    If you're worried about weight, why not try a folding camera? This was done with an old Zeiss 6x6 with Novar lens. It is not much bigger or heavier than an SLR.

    I have a Zeiss Super Ikonta IV and it's a beautiful camera. I brought it to South East Asian with the camera. However, I liked SLRs better because of framing and depth of field preview.

    For what it's worth my dad also still uses his RZs handheld all the time. Always with a compendium shade, a winder, and a prism, I might add.

    Chris; What film and shutter speeds and lens does you dad use, if you know, when he's shooting hand-held?

    Alan,

    He uses a 50, 65, 110, 150, 100-200, and 180.

    His preferred films would have been either Ektachrome EPR, Tri-X, Portra 400NC or 160NC, but switched to a Leaf digital back for his Mamiyas and Hasselblads back in 2007.

    Shutter speeds are all over the map depending on what he's doing. He's been working with camera motion for a while, so those exposures tend to be a 1/4-1/15, and when he's doing normal stuff, it's usually 1/250. In the studio it's always 1/250, too, hooked up to Profoto 7A's.

    best,

    Chris

    Chris: What speed does you Dad use, and lens and film when hand-holding without tripod? I usually blur when I try it.

    Alan, with a bit of care I can hand hold the 127mm at 1/60th and get consistently good results. You didn't ask me, but I thought I'd chime in

    Any speed, although I mostly use ISO 100 and ISO 400 films, both b&w and colour.
