I've been thinking about getting a Mamiya C330. I love the square format. The lenses are superb. Able to shoot both 120 and 220. I miss my old C33....so this may be something different to consider for you as well.

Funny, I used a C33 professionally for about 5 years. I was really happy the day the strap broke 20 feet up a ladder! The ergonomics were horrible and the 65mm W/A was the worst piece of glass I ever used professionally -- flared like 60's trousers!

If you've used one before and were happy with it then good luck to you. I'd rather have a Rollei or a Semflex (I really want a Semflex studio with the 150mm Berthiot!) in TLR land.

Every photograph is an abstraction from reality.
Most people are more interested in the picture than the image.
