    after looking at many hassy kits I went w. an old bronica s2a, under 400 bucks. But the rolliecords are nice, I had one and it worked great and its a very elegant design.

    Earlier you said you like the 8X8 because they're unique when you present them. That suggests a 6X6 camera.

    If you also like the 8X10, it suggests a 6X7 camera.
    If you use a 6X7 you can always crop down to a square.

    Either will do with a little cropping here and there..

    Which one do you like?

    does a 6x7 mean a bigger surface area for the image? better resolution? then I guess I would pick up a 6x7 and then crop it to a square image to give me a better image in terms of resolution.. i think it would be more flexible since I can create photographs in landscape or portrait orientation.. thanks for all the infos.. if you have more tips, please do post here...

    Hello Denmark, Kumusta diyan? Fellow Pinoy here but have been away for quite a long time in the Manila photo scene. In my days (80s to 90s) as freelance fotog there, Mamiya RBs and RZ' are standard medium format workhorses. These might be easier to find in the used market there than say, Blads, Bronicas, Pentax 67 or the Fuji line from GA645 to 69. Of course you can always source them online but how reliable is our postal system nowadays?
    About the size format, its already a given, 6X7 is bigger than 6X6 hehehe, but seriously at least for me, i would prefer cropping paper than cropping the image.
    Hope i've been a little help. kabayan!

    Yes, 6x7 is a bigger surface area. You can go even bigger, because Fuji made some interesting cameras that were 6x8 or 6x9, and Mamiya makes a 6x8 back for the RB. That being said, the RB really is very large, and while I hear that it can be handheld, from my admittedly limited use with it says it can be a real pain. If you want to handhold a 6x7, go for one of the rangefinders or a Pentax 67 if SLRs are your gig. I personally use a Pentax 67, and I have high praise for it. Furthermore, contrary to what Rick says, in my experience it is very handholdable. Sure, slow exposures with big lenses at f/22 isn't going to happen, but I find that with the standard or wide lenses it is mobile, and very fast in use.

    Oh, and a little blatant self promotion....
    Most of the photos on my blog were taken with a Pentax 67, and almost all were hand held. Whether or not you find the actual photos to your liking, you can really get a sense of the depth and detail possible with a 6x7.

    I just had a look at your blog, and liked very much what I saw. I wish that I had had a Pentax 67 when I was 17!

    If you're going to print square there's no size advantage to 6X7. 6CM is 6CM. The width will give you a little bit of room to crop the sides.

    I like Yashicamats a lot. I have several. I you want to go 6X6; choose a Bronica SQ for little money. Get a Mamiya RB6X7 if you dare to carry the beast. Another option; Mamiya M645 (very portable)(6X4.5). If you have money to burn; go Hasselblad (6X6)
