Thanks for the references I had never seen before. I'll have to think  
about the digital Hassy option.

When we were using our 3.5 Rollei, and even now, I always thought of  
Hasselblad as being way up there on a pedestal, not for the likes of  
us mere mortals.

I have a dear friend who was a professor of physical chemistry who  
told me that his students would forgive him for anything except making  
them think.

I, however, am glad you have made me think.

All the best,
