    > if you are standing and have no place to temporarily set down camera parts

    It is at least possible with the Rolleiflexes and Rolleicords. I own cameras fro whcih that requires artistic skills.

    I will carry one back for color and one for b/w, but not 2 of each. Sure, if I run out of color I can switch quickly to the b/w back, but it's not how I like to work because if I've chosen color for a particular shot it's for a reason.

I have some fantastic photographs from that trip. Be prepared for anything and wonderful opportunities arise.

    Also when I am using the Hasselblad I already have the 50mm, 80mm, 150mm, 250mm lenses, the filters, close-up rings, 2X adapter and a 903 SWC available. How much more trouble does it take to have an extra film back too?

    Rangefinders and the P67 have the distinct advantage of working like a 35mm SLR. You just swing open the back and do your thing; thus no removable parts that require another hand or pocket while reloading.

    But if you need to change film mid=roll, you loose the rest of the roll. If you are using a slower film during the day and have 10 exposures on a 36 exposure roll and you need to change to high speed film for available light photography are you going to waste 16 exposures on the first roll?
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    I never had a problem loading my RB67 or the Rolleiflex TLR 2.8. Usually I can to it within 5 years!
