How about a big folder?

Hi, In addition to view cameras, big negatives can be made with the folding Zeiss Super Ikonta C shown below. Negatives are 6cm X 9cm, on still available 120 roll film. Lots less hassle than a view camera. These often appear on online auction in good user condition (having been well built to begin with), with built-in rangefinder, incomparable coated Zeiss Tessar Opton, folds flat to 6.25" X 3.5" X 1.75". Like a Kodak Retina on steroids. Other companies made 6X9 folders too.

Take a picture, it'll last longer.
