Very nice.
And folks say the brand "Pentax" is meaningless as long as (insert here).
Someday folks will understand.

Touching indeed. I'm feeling the need to fire my 6x7 tank up now.

Why do beginners always gravitate to the wooden hand grip and the focus ring? That was something I stopped using in the first year as well as my friends who have a 6x7 too.

Very touching. I wasn't sure if it was a bit drippy, or if I was about to actually cry.

Overall, the cinematography was very nicely done, although they overdid the shallow DOF at times and missed the focus in a few places.

Did anyone notice the reversed image at 4:58, for just 2 seconds? Unless that was supposed to be a view through a mirror or something.

Yes, it certainly is... But paradoxically in the short time I've had my 6x7, I'm almost less self conscious using it on the street than my K-5II. I don't really do people photos though, so that might change the equation. Something about the WLF, and the fact that I'm obviously using a giant clunky old camera for fun rather than to "spy" with my fancy DSLR. Or maybe I just need to get over it and learn to enjoy myself.
