    I LOVE my C33. Awesome system. I never understood complaints about weight anyhow. Come on. Are we a bunch of sissys?

    Hold my handbag, and I'll tell you !!, seriously, I like heavy cameras I find them easier to hold still, I think It's something to do with inertia. I too have a C33, and find It's quite a lot heavier then my C330F, and Its built like a WW11 Russian tank, it was old when I got it about twenty years ago and will probably outlast me, but it still takes good pictures, I wish I did.

    Y'all can scream and moan about the mamiya with a grip.... I shot a fair amount with a 65mm lens and a hand grip. Nice setup, just plant yourself firmly and shoot. I do prefer an "el" grip with a flash mount on top but the grip with the camera on top, neck strap keeping things stable work well.

    I made a rig out of bath chain, I welded a length of it to a 1/4" B.S.W. ever ready case screw, so I can screw the chain into the camera tripod bush and stand on the chain, so I can hold it and gently pull on the chain, it's like a portable tripod that goes in my pocket.

    Anybody know a good way of visualising a 6x4.5 crop in-camera? I'm finding it difficult using the whole 6x6 groundglass screen. I was thinking of buying a spare screen and putting lines on there with permenant marker.

    If the model you have takes interchangeable screens , the No.6 checker screen is a big help.

    Just put a piece of thin cardboard or dark paper over your screen. It will stay in place easily because the focussing screen is sandwiched under a thin sheet of metal, which is raised slightly above the screen.
    Using film since before it was hip.
