Re: Which film camera for my buddy's wedding?

I'd go for a Mamiya or Pentax 645 set up

Hell, you can even get a 220 insert and Portra (the only film I know still avail in 22) and use it like a giant 35mm

Get nice darkroom prints and party like its 1994! (with better film)

These cameras were pretty much made for weddings

Get the leaf shutter lens and sync up to 1/500s!

BTW: the Mamiya 7 is pretty much a spot metering camera (i.e. Leica M6, but not a TTL meter)

Go run a few test rolls and prints before you ship out1
