Could be, Sandy. I'll look into that option. A dedicated pano system will be easier to use since there's no need for a second exposure nor to stitch two images together unless I want to go wider than 12". It's also two fewer cuts in the darkroom to load film. Really, my major concern after cost is weight and bulk. The MQC 57 is "lighter" and "smaller" than a 5x12 pano system. I know I would prefer using a nice 5x12 but I just don't know how far I can carry it these days...
