I don't just mean short. Don't expect to hand-hold many 6x7 cameras (if any, even the Pentax with the wood grip) because they don't have fast top shutter speeds, are awkward sizes and very heavy. Could you do it? Probably. Would you want to? Probably not.

I hate people that ***** about the weight of 70-200 2.8s. Hopefully I'll be fine. A 6x9 RF shouldn't be too bad right?

You're in for a surprise, tiny hands.

Holy crap thats big.
post #17385 of 29551
My gripe with 6x9 is that it's still too few shots on a roll. I mean, 6-7 shots on a 120 roll? Not worth it unless you're very proficient and have lots of time. I keep the 35mm for snapping and street, the cost of MF film and dev (plus scan time, only 2 frames at a time on the V500) is simply too great to use as an everyday tote-around camera.

6-7 shots, that sounds pretty good to me honestly. 375 for a camera, so cheap...

If you're not going to print big, there's very little point in getting into a larger format than 35mm.

I disagree. Each format offers it's own unique look when used properly. Like 8x10 shots for example. Also theres different equipment offered for larger formats like view cameras which give a while new level of control in camera.

Better than the 63 bucks I just paid for a propack of Portra 400 from B&H.
Whoah. Do you think you could send me some of that if it comes out well? I could paypal you the cost + shipping + whatever.

Unless his hands are /really/ tiny, it won't be a big problem. I have smaller-than-average sized hands, and I have yet to have a problem with any cameras. It actually makes things easier with my 645 because I can easily slip my fingers into the space between the grip and camera body, so it takes no effort to hold onto it when I'm walking around. My dad cannot do that, and complains if I ask him to hold the camera for more than a couple minutes.

You also get typically better optics, and you can stop down more without having to worry about diffraction.
