I don't own a Hassy, but I think it makes you shoot differently then a DSLR. It's a wonderful piece of equipment. It's beautiful to the eye, and feels great in the hand. It just slows you down. With that A12 back, you can't mindlessly shoot. When you crank that film lever, there's that wonderful buzzing. How about that wonderful clunk of the mirror when you fire the shutter? I shoot with with a Mamiya RZ and the Hassy has a soul that my Mamiya can't match.
