    I only know of the Hasselblad FlexBody that fits that description.

    Better still: the Hasselblad ArcBody.

    The FlexBody is very limited - by the Zeiss lenses it takes - in what it can do.
    The ArcBody uses Rodenstock lenses with sufficient covering power to make good use of movements.

    But though small, these thingies are also rather expensive.

    I am somewhat biased, but this would work and can be done quite inexpensively:

    Far more flexibility than anything VH has put out, ever, and you can use a graflex 6x6 back (RH12) if you wish.

    bigger and heavier(quite a bit) than a hasselblad or SL66 but a good camera with a wide range of lenses.

    Its not made anymore but there's lots of used kit on the market.

    And then there is the Linhof M679 which will take hasselblad film backs and mamiya film backs, most digital backs. Takes most largeformat lenses also.
    Really designed as a studio camera for digi backs but works just as well with film. But it is a view camera albeit smaller than 4x5 although probably as heavy or heavier than a lightweight 4x5 field camera.

    I really liked my Galvin when I used it. Very light, very usable. PM me if you are interested in buying one. I just don't use it, and it should be used. I got two 6x9 backs too.
