    One of the many folders, which are small enough to fit into your pocket. Such as these:

    The Fuji GS645 folder with the 75mm lens isn't exactly huge.

    The Super Ikonta A is quite small for a 120 camera.

    You might want to try one of the Zeiss Nettars. Very compact, fairly cheap ($30 to $75) and nice image quality.

    Well not compact, some of the TLRs are not bad.

    Mamiya 6 folder or similar. There is an older Fuji folder that is very compact, I don't recall the number, maybe gs645 or such that CGW mentioned.

    The "modern" Mamiya 6 has a collapsible lens attachment; it is quite compact and great for travel; I often take two of them and all three lenses and put them in a small bag. Altogether the kit is actually more compact than a typical 35mm body + 3 lens kit.

    The newest fuji folder is compact but pricey.

    wow! so many answers in just a few minutes ...
    i should clearify my quest: i have TLR, and VH ...
    folders are okay, but when unfolded, not so much any more.

    i'm more looking for something that easily fits in my coat and doesn't need hours to prepare before taking a shot
    just take it out of the pocket, take a shot and gets back in.

    thanks,
    mm
