I just picked up a 645 with 75mm lens, Does anybody know of any bad habits this model has?
My plan is to feed it lot's and lot's of T-Max and tri-X as I dont like the results I am getting with digital BW

If this is an original Pentax 645 (not the N or NII) then the only other thing I would keep an eye out for is the internal battery (not the 6 AAs in the grip). I believe its function is to remember the settings the camera has when the AAs run out of power or you switch the AAs.

One other thought to keep it happy is some spare clothes - like a 150mm or a 55mm lens. Otherwise this is a great camera. Enjoy.
