    My mamiya 6 is as close as I've found. I would like a shorter lens.

    I have in my mind the thought of what I could do with a Plaubel SW pro shift but Ive never used one and the grass is often greener...

    I love my sinar and need to add just one more lens and a 6x12 RFH and it is done. Unfortunately, it is 50% a studio camera and I gave mine up for a darkroom.

    I would love a M3/4/6 and the lenses, but I hate the tiny neg.

    For 35mm, a manual focus Nikon with interchangable viewfinders AND interchangable film backs - no more rewinding mid roll to change from neg to chromes.

    Medium format, I have it already, my Bronica system.

    Large format field camera, a Canham Traditional wood field with both 5X7 and 4X5 backs.

    Large format studio camera... hmmmmm.... I need to think about that some more...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    To approach this a different way:

    A MF SLR camera, with:
    - controls that can be operated with either hand;
    - choice of replaceable backs, offering a choice of either 6x6 square format, or rotating 6x4.5 format, with easy to load inserts;
    - choice of viewfinders and prisms, including a 45 degree prism, all with bright and contrasty screens, showing at least 97% of the image area, and automatically showing the size and orientation of the film back;
    - built in (to the body) metering usable with all finders, including a spotmeter, and a centre-weighted meter, and averaging meter, all with manual and aperture preferred autonatic options, all with OTF capabilities, including for flash;
    - focal plane shutter, with manual speeds between 16 seconds and 1/1000 second, with 1/250 flash synch speed;
    - uses commonly available household type (AA??) batteries, and offers a range of useful manual shutter speeds if batteries fail;
    - a variety of grip choices, for left and right hand options;
    - a variety of winder choices, including power winders as well as winding cranks and speed grips (as in Bronica ETRSi) which can be set to operate from either side;
    - a wide range of sharp, contrasty manual focus lenses, including specialty lenses such as macros, soft-focus, leaf shutter lenses (that maintain automatic operation) and zooms;
    - an effective, add-on auto-focus option;
    - a wide range of easy to use accessories that work well with each other;
    - light weight, but robust build quality, that is easily maintained and serviced; and
    - most importantly, owned by me.

    You did say that this was to be my Dream camera

    Gandolfi again. In particular the 5x7" Traditional.

    In 35mm cameras the Bessa-L comes pretty close.

    How about a camera you made yourself? You cut your wood and machined your brass/steel? That will be my dream camera when I complete it.
