As an amateur, for 6x6 and 6x4.5 with removable backs I use Salyut (I have also Salyut-S and one Kiev-88). I ilke it because it has all I want: - compactness - fully manual - easy to find used bodies for parts - still quite some guys left for professional repairs in case of need - range of lenses - reasonably priced yet I am curious to try some other brand/model. fully manual, no electronic at all, and compactness are mandatory to me. So: because the size I won't buy Mamiya RB67. because insane prices for lenses I won't buy Hasselblad because insane prices of everything I won't buy Rolleiflex SL66, which seems to me the dream camera. the only fully mechanical compact 6x6's left that I am aware of are the Kowa Six but it's a rarity, and the Bronica S2/S2A my question is; how it feels to tinker with it when needed, which like with any mechanical camera, will happen. I tried to get an idea of the guts, and according to the pictures at the bottom of this page: Zenza Bronica it seems way more complex than a Salyut (Salyut is a hell of tricky to put together correctly adjusted but is simplier mechanically than what I see on that link. The S2 has more moving parts anyway because the cover for the flipped-down mirror, the blind for the viewfinder and the extra clutch for winding. Wondering how difficult it may be to fix problems.
