    After returning from two recent trips where I took the C220 instead of a view camera (and shot with it heavily), I was wondering if anyone had ever custom-built a wide-angle lens for these cameras? I of course know about the 55, (I'm using a 65 black as a normal), but that isn't all that wide in 6x6. Anyone have any thoughts on adapting something such as the SA 47mm, or know of another lens in the 40mm-ish focal length with its own shutter that's compact enough to be mounted on a Mamiya TLR plate? The reference point should probably be that I use a 24mm on the Nikon about 1/3 of the time.

    Maybe this is just the result of a TLR fever this summer (tetracyline is probably the cure), but I found that it makes an excellent travel camera which complements the F quite nicely. The Velvia/Portra from Oregon is gorgeous, and it's hard to complain about negatives big enough to see.

    I find that my C330f is used more often than I figured when I procured it. For me the logical step from 36mm was the 6x7 Koni Omega, but the seller also had the Mamiya in my frame of vision and when I made an offer, he took it - so I have both.

    I often used the Mamiya "hand-held" using the waist level view finder, neck strap, and foot cord (info available on request). Clear images at 1/8 second shutter are possible.

    Note: Finally I got back to the future with a Speed Graphic (when I first started photography that was considered medium format).

    I went in the other direction and moved the taking lens of a silver 65mm and used it on my baby graphic (2 1/4 x 3 1/4). It covered the format quite well.
