    There are a number of them on ebay, but the Bolsey is a horizontal format camera, so it's still not what you are looking for....
    Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!

    Really neat! The only thing is the film moves side to side, giving the "landscape" aspect. Can you imagine how tiny a "classic" up-and-down TLR 35mm would be?

    I think a 35 mm TLR would be great fun, and tiny!!!


    Well, that's not really the POINT of the power drive, although some do appreciate it. For me, it always just added a bunch of weight and bulk, and didn't do a whole lot else.

    Oh, I know its not the point - I was reaching there

    I think a TLR is hard to beat as far as the size-bulk-handiness vs big negatives relationship is concerned, but I find that I reach for the 35mm SLR a lot because its just easier - faster, easier to focus, more flexible. But I would never be without at least one camera that can give me at least a 6x6 negative... again, scared to think what will happen when I get my hands on a LF rig...

    I have put my conversion thoughts on hold as I have spent too much time considering buying MF gear.

    I concluded that I rather should spend time shooting with what I got, and I rarely make larger prints than 10x12 inches. and for that 35 mm is great for me. Of course I would get a bit more sharpness and smaller grain with a 6x6 negative, but really...the main thing that would make my pictures better is my skills as photog. I will get MF later when I have learned to take pictures. I am surely still a beginner...

    So instead of spending several thousand $$ on MF, I will spend some on a better portrait lens and tons of film...
