I confess I haven't read every post in this 4 page thread, but with regard to all the questions about needing to set the camera down while reloading while shooting handheld, all you need is a neck strap. I think every MF camera takes a little getting used to, but that's part of the fun. Certainly cameras with removable film backs take a little more work, but then you have the advantage of being able to use multiple backs and preload them at home. I was glad to see cjbecker's favorable comments about the P67. It has a reputation for being hard to load, but I've never found that to be true. You just have to spin the spool a bit until it is properly seated.
