    errrrrrrr...

    is there any big different between a leaf shutter like the GS-1 and a focal plane shutter like the S2

    i mean other than the max. speed and the max. flash sync speed...

    if i can found a bargain S2A... i may give up the GS-1, although i like 6x7 more and it also gives me more option...
    but i always believe mechanical stuff is more durable than the electronic counter part
    hmmmm... maybe it is just my religion

    i should really open a new thread with all of these question... :rolleyes:
    sorry about that

    The S2a may have a longer life span than a GS-1, but it's already considerably older than the GS-1. I have an S2a system, and I like it, but I also know that it's mechanically an unusually complicated camera, so there are lots of things to go wrong with it, so I wouldn't choose it over a GS-1 on the basis of reliability alone.

    i notice that some of them come with a 220 back,
    is it ok to put 120 roll on a 220 back?

    'cos i probably will use 120 only

    thanks
    Im having the same problem with me RB67. Can i put 120 in a 220 back even though you shouldnt? will it affect focusing and all the images become soft?
    Thanks for coming.
