    When I made this choice, I went with the RB67 over the 645 because of the larger negative and the fact that I mainly intended to use the camera on a tripod.

    I owned a Mamiya brand left hand grip with built in shutter release and cold shoe for flash for my RZ. I really liked it. There is one out there made for the RB too. You may want this, especially if you shoot hand held. It makes the camera a whole lot easier to handle.

    If you shoot handheld get the 645.....personally, I'd look at both the Pentax and Mamiya 645. I think the Pentax is easier to hand hold with the grip, but the Mamiya is smaller. The quality of the image isn't all that different from the 6x7 unless you print pretty big.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I have a Hasselblad and RB67 system. I also had 645 systems in the past. I love my RB and I love my Hasselblad. Never liked 645. I have no problem carrying the RB67 with a grip for hours and using it purely handheld, I can easily shoot it down to 1/15. Ok, it can get a bit heavy after 4-5 hours but when I get the film back it is superb. It also makes my Hasselblad look small and light. Somehow I tend to pick the RB more often than the Hasselblad nowadays.

    If hasselblad is out of your budget then consider a bronica sq series kit.

    Ah, so the RB67 is part of your personal fitness program and not part of your photographic program, isn't it?
    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.
