Is there anything more portable than a TLR?

    Jurgen got back to me and said that it was probably a standard one. Went that route. I will see if that does the trick.

    Well the lightest thing that takes 120 film is probably a Holga they can be had for <20$ but don't expect much...

    I sometimes use a 500CM when Im out and about, not really the worst thing to carry around, its never bothered me much, but I can see why people wouldn't want to lug it around its not exactly the lightest thing in the world.

    I have a delightful Rolleichord I Model 2, takes great pictures and is a bit lighter than the later Rolleiflexs as there is simply less going on. The Rolleichords can be had for <100$ (I paid 80 for mine at a flea market about 8 months ago) which is significantly less than the Rolleiflexs. This is where I would stick for nice size MF cameras. The Rollei stuff has a good mix of size, features and weight.

    Put some time in on a Voightlander Bessa folder which was an interesting camera. I had the first generation one that did not have the rangefinder unit, just the scale and the composition view piece. Lots of out of focus pictures... The ones that were good came out nice but nothing to write home about. Ended up trading it (in part for the 500C/M). Not sure Im ready to go back to something with a focus scale again.

    Regards
    Dave

    Figured that I would update this. I have shot a few rolls with it and have to say. It is interesting and I quite like it. More deliberate photography. Slows everything down. I only have 8 shots so I look at things differently now. My first roll and I came away with a few good shots. It was a test roll really. TMax 400 scanned with a Canonscan MKII.

    Good recommendation. Easily hand-holdable and the lenses are outstanding.
