Hello from Jakarta!

Hello pentaxians! What a cool name that is
I got a 645z and struggle now with the big files and everything else which comes with MFD. I owned once a Pentax 6x7, I think I bought it because of the wonderful wooden grip. Though I worked with quite a few analogue MFs and just try out wether the digital MF can do the same magic as these. I am a German residing in Jakarta and if we are neighbors, just give me a shout and we might meet for a coffee or two. Mostly I work in my studio - beauty and fashion. Though I'm still figuring out the best retouching techniques for this format. Well, enough said. I hope you enjoy photography and we 'meet' us in the threads again.

Welcome to the forum, that's the first time I've ever heard a hunk of wood wins the day.

That said I did do something similar with my LX and whittled myself the wooden Pentax grip... before buying the black plastic version, once I decided that my handcraft left a lot to be desired.
