Dear group,

After reading about the famous Russar 20/5.6 again on this list, I am 
getting more and more tempted to use this lens with Kodak infrared 
film and opaque filters, one of the benefits of a range finder 

However, this film requires darkloading. On the IR-list, Joe B.
painted clearly the horrors of darkloading the average Leica screw
mount now I come to you, oh group, to point me to a
*better* screw mount camera.....which brand & model will allow
darkloading without going insane?? 
[fire extinguisher ready, Nomex suit on, heat resistant goggles in place].

Thanks for flaming me with useful information....8-))

inhere) Jan
