Hi Shaggy;

What digi cam do U have ? Am almost at the point of going digital for "happy snaps". 6 x 9 is a great landscape format. I have a light weight 6x9 kit = horseman back/47 mm schneider lens but only fixed infinity focus. Also use a light weight Tachihara wooden view camera (5"x4" & 6x12cm) & mix LF lenses for serious landscape/studio shots. Have a Subal housing/domes Nikon F90X & 2 x SB104 strobes for underwater. Use Nikonos V & velcro harness for surf photography. Use 2.8/180mm Nikkor/28 to 200 for most 35 mm outdoor work. I remember one of your earlier posts referring to the effect of 9.8 M/sec on a Pentax 6x7 = have heard of one falling from aircraft @ >1000M & surviving (must have been on a hay stack ?) PS : Pentax 6x7's can be "re-greased" for sub zero temp use = the choice over Blads for Arctic/Ice use.
