I do like the quick deploy-ability of your camera. How does it focus. Is that cone rigid that holds the lens?
The last thought, besides the money to buy a 6x17 is how to deal with the images after creating the negs. I have a flat bed that should handle it for virtual images and doing Van Dykes off the long negs sounds like fun but anything else looks like it generates issues.
