the 645 folder is a nicely conceived camera indeed, big neg in a pocketable
(if you have big pockets) folder, with coupled meter and rangefinder.

but it is a bit fussy.
mine has been to the camera doctor half a dozen times, and you need 
to handle it gently, load the film making sure it's tightly wound 
(otherwise the roll gets too fat and the gearing goes on you).  it's to
the point where i am almost afraid to use it for fear of breaking it!

there are not that many out there, and the few i've seen have not been 
working quite right (not properly opening and closing, or rangefinder 
or meter obviously off.)  i advise checking any sample out in person.
