When I tried this combo on 120 film, I could barely find the grain! :D If the film didn't curl so much I'd use it more.

The pages haven't been updated in some time, but Kerry Thalmann (http://www.thalmann.com/largeformat/mid-rang.htm) may give you some ideas. The 203 Ektar gets a mention as a budget option. :)

Spacer for Copal 3 shutter

It's a shame they won't split the lot as all I want is the 10x8 back, standard and bellows. I suspect that the combined package will sell for a lot more than I can afford. :(
