jd40, look at the Mamiya RB67. Its a horse of a camera, and so you dont turn the camera to take protraits the film back revolves. Hence RB (revolving back). Also, what it is worth, its a 6cm x 7cm. Nearly the same ratio as a 35mm. Look at the used section of auction sites on the web. I believe the Hasseys are 6 x 6.

Hey if you want to get into Medium format film, you can't go past a used (but in good condition) Mamiya TLR! Especially if you like the look of 6x6.

They take beautiful photos, a la...

You can do that with a rb, and change the film back from b+w to color to chrome without finishing the roll to do it. The TLR is a good camera (had one), but I think the rb is a little more versatile.
