Good MF camera for copying and closeup : LUSENET : Bulletin Board for Medium and Large Format Photography : One Thread


I'm looking for an ideal medium format camera (6 X 7) to be used for close-up work and photo copying on a copy stand. Some of the photos I copy are very small, so I'd be copying at distances of a few inches.I've been using a 35mm for this, but I'm less than satisfied with the results of some enlargements. I'd like to archive some valuable photos on medium format film. The only cameras I've really looked at so far are the Pentax 67II and the Mamiya 7II, but I don't know if they can be outfitted properly for this application. Any suggestions? Is there a camera that will do this and other normal types of photography as well?
