I've always used my 250 for portraiture (with FP-3000B), and I've often got some good results. I like the softness and very analog feel of the pictures; and the convenience of the camera itself (I use a close-up lens). I often wondered however if this was a recommended choice for B&W portraiture or if I should, at least for the sake of learning, consider another camera for portraiture exclusively (studio work, mostly head shots) on either Fuji, Polaroid or Impossible film; not excluding larger formats of course.
