I was testing a recently acquired K1000 SE yesterday and these are a few of the ones that worked. Sadly, on about a third of the shots, the shutter had problems and only half the frame was exposed
Once I can afford it I will send it to Eric along with a few other items I have that need work.


K1000 SE, M 100/2.8, Fujicolor 200

I have still not decided between a 6x9 or a 4x5. The smaller size should be more convenient both in term of size and potentially using a roll back but I am not so sure about the resolution of the lenses on a small negative compared to a MF lens.
The 4x5 might make more sense from that point of view.
All costs consideration apart of course
I went through a similar thought process lately. I had a 6x9 horseman back for my 4x5, but after purchasing my Rolleiflex, I concluded that 6x9 wasn't worth it for a couple reasons. My single large format lens, a Fuji W 125mm, is sharp but the Xenotar in the Rollei is in a different world. I feel I can enlarge the 6x6 as large or larger than the bigger 6x9 negative. I found the workflow with the 6x9 back a bit restrictive too. It's harder to judge the movements, and removing the glass to insert the back is slow and a bit cumbersome. Also Like 35mm, I find the 3:2 aspect ratio difficult to compose. For landscapes it's OK, but portraits are too tall. Since I print with an Epson 3800, I'm restricted to cut paper sizes or cutting roll paper(a major PITA). Cut paper usually requires significant cropping of the 6x9 or a reduction in height to fit on most standard papers. So in the end I concluded the best option, for me, was to sell the 6x9 back and only use the 4x5 for... well, 4x5. Plus, 4x5 will show a larger tonality benefit even if sharpness and resolution only equals the medium format. Maybe my experience will help you make a decision, who knows.

I finally managed to find the negatives from when I was in NZ about 9 years ago.
These were taken at Fox glacier in the South Island. Looks like film was Kodak Gold, and the camera I was using was a Pentax MZ-50 with Sigma glass.

Cheers,
Matt

Just realized this was scanned backwards!

I have a Linhoff Super Rollex 6x7 roll film holder for my 4x5 and concur on both points. I also have two Calumet adapters that slip under the ground glass , but the issue with using the movements remains the same. A 2x3 (6x9) view camera sounded like a good option at one point, but now I am not so sure. That is particularly true since my 4x5 is relatively light and compact.
