Am I allowed to ask general questions here? If no, some guidance, please. My everyday shooters are 35mm. My 'good stuff' is 645 film gear. For want of a larger negative, I am considering a Mamiya RB67 of one flavor or another. I do have a decent tripod. I pay for developing, shoot negative film only, pay for high-res scanning for my 645 film, scan my own 35mm with OpticFilm 7600i, and would pay for high-res 6x7 scans. I know I will enjoy the all manual process. Photographically, is adding 6x7 going to make any difference? Considering a Pro-S w/90mm on E-Bay for $300.
This forum is for discussion of all film, which definitely includes questions.
When shooting medium format, I chose square, and shot with some cropping in mind. I had often thought about getting a 6x7, but never did. If you think it would be useful for your style of shooting, by all means, get one. All I'm saying is, it's not absolutely necessary, but again, that's a subjective comment for my shooting style.
One thing to bear in mind is, the 6x7 will use slightly more film, thereby, a slight increase in cost to you.
Here's a handy wiki on that, that also describes the shots available for 645, vs 6x6, and 6x7. Scroll about halfway down for the chart.
