I'd do the same tomorrow for a nice Hasselblad and/or Rollei and/or 8x10 setup...

This is a great time to be a buyer of film cameras, esp now that the economy is sinking, a lot of folks may be having a fire sale...
If you can rig up a shutter situation, you are welcome to try out my B&J Grover 8x10. I was just talking about selling it. Not the world's greatest 8x10, but it works, and has a 5x7 back as well (and a 4x5 back). We have spoken before, and we are no more than 10 minutes from each other.
