    Thanks for the info, I'll give it a try next week

    I used a 645e in Venice that returned some wonderful shots. I used a 55, 80 and 150mm lens. 150 proved to be great for candid street shots. 60 rolls in 2.5 days. pouring rain more than 50% of the time. I used a monopod and rapid winder. Umbrella and rapid winder worked well.

    I chose the 645e over the RB and Sinar F2 for speed, weight and built in metering. Worked out very well. Love Venice, can't wait to get back. Next time; RB.
    Success comes in cans.............. Failure comes in cant's

    I find it much easier to use my M645 Super handheld with the accessory grip, with the connector that permits use of the shutter release on the grip, and the focus assist lever. I am, however, very left handed.

    A waist level finder is great, but practically speaking, you are restricting yourself to horizontal format.

    My favorite lens for this purpose? The 55mm f 2.8.

    Have fun!

    Y Not?

    Sean,

    I use my 645E chasing my kids around the yard and I've usually had great results. Light, quick and easy.

    I've tried BradS suggestion using WLF with my other 645 but my brain has not got the reversal thing sorted out so I often swing the wrong way, and as for portait orientation with WLF, forget it. YMMV.

    In any case, give it a go and let us know how you fare.

    Good luck!

    Glenn

    If I can do it with my Bronica S2A, where I have to yell "CLEAR!" before everyone around me is knocked over by the report of the Mr. Zenzaburo's mighty shutter, you should have no problem with the M645.

    Nice shot, David. What film did you use - grain seems pretty well controlled.

    Sean.
    Go for it!
    I do almost all my shots, for street photography, with Pentax NII and Hassel 503 CXi, always handheld without problems, normally with Tmax 100 ,Tri X 320-400 and TMax 400, with a sunny day at 400 ISO 1/500 f11-16 and a 100 ISO 1/250 f8-11, the result almost always very goods. I do the shots with my Hassy without built-meter, my meter is a very cheap Sekonic L 308-B, and no problem. Hassy for street is a great machine.
    With Pentax, I think, that I can do all sorts of Photography, sports included.
    With your camera don't have any problems is OK
    Sorry for my stinking English
    Regards.
