If you’re shooting 6×9 and use Portra 160 or Ektar 100, it’s possible, under exactly the right circumstance, to get a 2400dpi scan off an Epson V600 that has NO visible grain. My local lab charges $5 to develop 120 or 35mm C41, and I scan at home w/ the aforesaid Epson. I’m thinking about buying one of these beasts to replace my Mamiya Press (most of my work is at night, rangefinder focusing is a PITA, the lenses are old and flare prone, etc). When it comes to analog “there’s no replacement for discplacement.” In many ways an RB67 would be more sensible, but I love the 6×9 format and this is as close as I can get to it with an SLR. (Yes, there’s a 6×8 back for the RB, but it only works in vertical)
