    SLR's with waist level viewing?

    I'm wondering, are there any 35mm SLR's with waist level finders? Kind of like the Pentax 67. I like eye-level viewing but I like waist-level too.

    Nikon F can take them.
    I think the F4 does also but dont quote me, the F4 is too new for me so I'm not 100% on that one.

    I have a wlf for my F but it is dinky compared to a 'blad or RZ.

    Pretty much any slr with a removable prism, add the Nikon F4 and F5 to the above.

    So, you have the F, F2, F3, F4, F5 everything from fully mechanical to super duper whiz bang electronic.

    cool! Thanks. It looks like I have more than a few options. I don't ever recall seeing one so I thought it was extremely rare or didn't exist, but it looks like I have a few choices.

    Canon F-1. As mentioned above, any one with a removable prism. Often you can also put another prism on the eyepiece to get a waist level view but it isn't quite as good and none of these will be as big as a nice MF WLF.

    Praktica FX, FX 2 and FX 3. I had the FX 3. A little noisy on the shutter/mirror side, but a fun camera nonetheless.
