Might as well figure out what the userbase looks like ...

Preview means the little screen at the back.

I voted Leaf no preview (Leaf Valeo 22 wi) but I have the iPaq with DP67 so technically I have a preview.

My Mamiya 6 doesn't have a "preview", but it is one of the nicest-handling film cameras I've used. Very sharp lenses. The main problem is that after many years of SLRs, I often find myself with a blank image or two at the start of a roll (until I remember to take the lens cap off.      )

I haven't been able to part with it even though I have done almost no film shooting for the past two-and-a-half years.

hi Edmund,

would be great to put Sinarbacks, instead of eMotion in your list: eMotion is only one type among a dozen other existing Sinarbacks. Like there is Phase or Leaf.

thanks,

Hi
Isnt it amazing that there are still so many film users! No agonizing over software issues , poor wideangle performance and closed or opensystems etc. etc. and they still have  lots of money in the bank!
thanks Ivan

i did vote, however, eMotion is not my back, since there are many type of Sinarbacks and eMotion is just one of them. better put Sinarbacks, like Leaf, like Phase One.

thanks,

I feel like a dinosaur here with my Kodak 645M on Mamiya 645AFD.  

The worst thing is that I use my D2X's & D200 much more on a day to day basis which is truely sad.

Graham, don't feel bad. I'm slumming too with my Kodak ProBack on a Contax 645. Damned if they didn't start offering Aptus 17's refurb'd for not much more than my kodak back about 6 mos after I bought it!

I'm using a Sinarback 54H on a P3 and Contax 645.  In 4-shot mode for still life it is pretty amazing.
Not bad in 1-shot mode either, useable, but a little too slow for people.
