Thanks to all for the responses and tips.
I figured it should work but , but again just wanted to make sure there wasn't some unknown " film factor" (unknown to me at least)
Been doing some research myself for a larger format film camera ..a pentax 67 or maybe mamiya 67?
Prefer something with interchangeable lenses .
The k1000 is fun but i find it a bit of a hassle to focus.. or perhaps my eyes are going
But then as i think about it this would be pretty much for portraits only so perhaps one of the fuji fixed lens cameras as they would be cheaper and woild get very limited use.
I would say look into a RB67 if you just want it for portraits. You can get them dirt cheap. They are big cameras but if you're not traveling with it, you should be good. I wish I would have gone with that before I bought my Pentax 6x7. My 6x7 just sits on the shelf now while my M645 1000s gets all of the use.
