Taking photos out of the window of a moving train. Pentax 6x7, 105mm wide open, Fuji Provia 400X (why on earth did Fuji decide to discontinue this great film? No highspeed slides anymore...)

My daughter and me, we enjoy to explore the nature. Here we found a rather huge shell in a nearby lake Pentax 645N, 120mm Makro, Fuji Provia 100F.

I've never held a Hassie, would you tell me what you think of the two systems as compared to one another? I have held an RB but RB's are different beasts entirely

I am a little miffed that 67s don't have interchangeable backs, but I would think that carrying a second body would work if you want to do one color one BW. Doing many many backs like you can with a Hassie isn't really replicable though (For instance, 3 black and white backs, 1 for contracted development, one for expanded development, and one for neutral, plus a color back).
I've used a variety of MF cameras and did consider a Hassie several years ago (when they were still avialable new), in the end I started with a Mamiya 645. Reasoning was that although a used Hassie outfit (body, back, lens & WLF) was affordable, additional lenses (and even backs to an extent at the time) were astonishingly expensive compared to all other options. I felt I'd be limited to just the 80mm lens but wanted a system camera. Also, I'd read a lot about jamming Hassie's if you operate them in the wrong sequence and didn't want the aggravation. Since then I've used a Bronica SQ-B (again 6x6 but this time with electronic shutters) and fewer mechanical interlocks.

I now have a P6x7MLU and a P67 body (so I can have mono/colour on the go and have a backup) with four lenses. The P67 lenses are more reliable than those with in-lens shutters (I've had to return a couple of Bronica SQ lenses due to inconsistent shutter speeds), much much cheaper than Zeiss, usually faster and cover a much greater lens range (although not suited to ambient flash photography unless you get the leaf shutter ones). I've only had two backs for each of my Mamiya & Bronica, anymore and the cost/weight/bulk adds up quite quickly. With only ten shots on a roll, you're never far from the end of it.

I don't know if the Hassie's have instant return mirrors or not, my Bronica doesn't, and it makes a surprising difference not being able to see through the finder afterwards.

John.

Thank you, alan_smithee_photos and montman.
@montman: Great portrait! I never tried doing portraits with a wide angle, but the 75mm and itīs owner seem to work very well for that. Did you use one of the extension tubes?

Thanks Fritz: No extension tubes, the AL lens just focuses crazy close.

@arnold: Thank you! I used no artficial lightning. Itīs just the light coming through the train window. I was not able to use a tripod or monopod because of the limited space; I tried my best with 1/60 sec with small expectations concerning the picture quality. For me, the result destroys the myth saying that itīs impossible to use the Pentax 6x7 handheld...
