Actually - I think I have over $800.00 in it.

Right now I have it up for sale;
*I like it and I can keep it
or
*film,film...I have lots of film cameras....and it's a little bulky/heavy...and I can use the $750.00+ toward the $2000.00 I owe.

Now ,basicly,out of the choices I have for 6X7 format(which I love);
This one is most like a 6X6 SLR...size and shape.

Chances are very good it won't sell - ...just > this is alot of money...since I got my Kowa super66 for $150.00 in E++ cond.

Got rid of my (sloppy) Century graphic 6X7,many many years ago had a Pentax 6X7 system(a tank)
Koni - right now has a TLR 6X7(that's not a miss print),but it's $500.00 without the 58mm wide and 150mm tele...all being sold separately at the same time.Will cost over $1000.00 because of rareity.
RB67 -is just too big...with the revolving back.
Galvin view(or simmilar) - I'd love ...but I'm NOT a tripod person

...though I am looking at a 6X12 combo...press type camera...but it had no center filter(could cost 3-4 hundread)and starting price was $950.00
If I'm smart -which I bearly am- I'll use my Digital SLR w wide lens or
my new Canon SX 40 IS for 2x shots...half the lenght;will be the hight.

Back to topic ; if I sell this 6X7 ...; I won't have a 6X7.
That MAY be OK.I err on the side of having the 6X7...and pay off the $2000.00 as I can.

Important note ; I can do SO much with my new Canon SX 40 IS ...why barther with expence,bulk and all the trouble...etc.
I can; *shoot square...B+W,*I can shoot 2x pano,and I have results right away/without going to photo store,and I can shoot 50-100 instead of 10 or 12 shots.

But do know - I'm coming full circle here...I love the old cameras...found my first film camera(yashica 124G)in a pawn shop...started this whole (beautiful)mess.

So ; conclusion ; I need to set-back a little and REMEMBER ;THE JOY OF SHOOTING FILM.

Just...I got this new camera...and I said ..."what am I doing with this film stuff?"(and cost !!!)
Film stuff IS very good in itself too...

I may need a film break and a digital vacation
