    I completely agree. With a waist level finder you don't have to shoot at waist level and with a prism finder you can always drop to one knee or step on a stool. You can do the job with either waist level finder or prism finder. If you own both then choose which works easier for the situation.

    Hi Matt,
    Nice to meet you! The wedding guest won't mistake you for the uncle of the bride with this camera.

    Yeah the RB is definately not a wedding camera so get that out of your head right now, no matter what you mount on it.

    I made a nice living off my Omega Rapid.. range finders rule in dark wedding halls.

    Bert you have the roll film back for that maximar?
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    I shoot mostly LF, and use MF (6x6) sometimes. I use the MF with both WLF and a prism - and for me, I tend to use the prism more when I am hand-holding the camera, and I appreciate the convenience of having the meter built in to the camera. Most of my shots though are on a tripod, where I don't use the built in meter, and am more likely to use the WLF.

    All a matter of preference - and to your question of how do you get used to images being reversed - the answer is 'with time'. I actually find it to be an advantage to have the image reversed, as it allows me to think about composition more closely.

    Hi Paul,
    Sorry for the very late reply. My camera is not a Maximar, but a Welta (German camera) from 1922. It has a Doppel Anastigmat Eurynar 1:3.5 f=13.5cm lens. It has a ground glass back (that can be removed) and some of the original sheet film holders (metal, one sided). It is in new condition and the shutters fires correctly at all speeds. I only need to replace the suede/velvet light seal on the back.

    I do have a roll film back, but I'm not sure if it fits this camera. Never tried, but would be a nice addition to this camera.
    I'll try to match it: thanks for the idea!!
    Bert
