    When did that happen? I have a fairly top of the range Olympus digital, but my OM series 35mm results blow it so far out of the water that I have pretty much stopped using it except for a few pictures where I really do need instant results. For anything else, it's just embarrasing. I was allowed a go on a Canon EOS 1Ds MkII a while ago and that was as good as the OM pictures, but I could buy a car for the price of one body and a few lenses.

    I love shooting with both my 35mm and 6x6. No preference one over the other. Other cameras I'd consider at this stage is a Rollei and a Leica. I love trying new equipment all the time. But in the end the subject and conditions determine the tools.

    I have had a different experience, I have been using more MF and LF and less 35mm all the time. I have actually gotten rid of my Nikon N90s and replaced it with a Yashica rangefinder because I couldn't justfy keeping it. I would have preferred to keep it and I am sure that I will be back in the SLR game soon enough, but the money was better spent, for me, on LF amd MF gear.

    I am shooting more and more 35mm now that I have kids, surprise surprise. I also enjoy the look of grain. I also am in love with my new (used ) bronny rf645 which is rapidly becoming my favourite camera of all time. Way smaller than my Eos 3 with lens albeit a very differnet beast. They all have their place, but teh RF645 has really staked out the ground between 35mm and LF for me. I have had a 6x6slr, TLR (loved my 'Cord actually - now sold) but none truly felt 100 % right to me. The RF645 is the only thing other than a 35mm I would entertain the idea of stalking my kids with....an absolute steal used too.

    The "brain damage from a mis-spent" youth would certainly explain a few things in my case...

    And I think we should celebrate the birth of "vertical panoramics" as a term and a concept, and if we all use it enough, you are ensured place in all future photography texts! Proud to be a part of this number!

    And I would love to find out how to join the bottom feeder ranks of LF users! Whenever youhave the time to spare, I would be very grateful for any pointers! (I stop here before I breach the context of this sub-forum).

    And by the way, are there any 35mm cameras that operate in the vertical? I know of one I saw that used non-perf film and was a beautiful wooden thing with brass fittings, lovingly restored by a local photographer - but I was thinking of something more practical for every day use. Maybe I should make one...stop it, crazy thoughts...shhh, they can hear us...What? Me? I didn't say anything...

    OK, no more non MF related stuff out of me!

    Er, all of them: you just turn them on their sides, or have I misunderstood?

    No, I expressed myself with insufficient clarity:

    I meant to say is: are there any 35 mm cameras, other than the afore mentioned antique, for which the vertical orientation is the standard, rather than the somewhat awkward alternative.

    Its all lost in my earlier ramblings... I am having a scattered brain-day...

    The Olympus Pen F, FT and FV were all half frame cameras that operated in the vertical. They were/are excellent shooters, well built, very pretty, and with modern films you can easily enlarge half frame negatives up to 8x10.

    Likewise, I only know for sure of half frame cameras. Not that long ago, though, Rollei used to make a medium format look alike 35mm SLR with interchangeable backs. Did that run the film vertically? I never used one.

    In MF, the Fuji GA645 series of cameras are vertical shooters. That's one of the things that drew me to the GA645Pro.
    Film is cheap. Opportunities are priceless.
