3) Finding someone to process the long film rolls is a life long search without success.
4) Finding the tanks to process the long film rolls is probably extremely difficult at best.

Other than those problems, it will be clear sailing.

Sounds easy enough...

I still have a few partially used rolls in the freezer now. I had to cut the film at a few foot each to process in my own darkroom. I did that only for testing the camera. It worked really well. I am planing to adapt a 645 film magazine on it in order to shoot 120 or 220 films with the camera. It can be done but takes time. Camerz long roll cameras are dirt cheap now. Can be had from eBay for less than $100 shipping included. The 75 - 150 zoom lens on it is an amazing piece of optic. The Camerz camera with the adaption of a 645 magazine will make an excellent studio portraiture camera.
I did look into the Camerz, but it's size and weight are deal breakers for me. I already have a 500ELX, and am not looking to add another camera to my collection for just one project. Motor drive and weight are two important factors for this project as well. That's why I'm looking into the 70mm backs for the Hasselblad.
