hi again --
i wanted to thank you all for your help and suggestions.
i ended up getting a folding mamiya 6 ( olde not new ) and it will arrive
sometime in the next few days in that truck in the plain brown wrapper.
i've a bunch of film to shoot with it, and when i am done, who knows, i might keep it!
i'll post some "stuff" i shoot with it here in the gallery, if i can find the time to process + print my film..
thanks again for your help!
