I think the "future of film" is bigger and bigger B&W neg. I have a
Mamiya 7II now, which is teeny compared to your 5x7. I will probably
get a converted Polaroid 4x5 at some point, but Razzle takes his time.
I got a Rodenstock 150 for a song for that project.

I am thinking about getting a folding Shen Hao 4x5. Almost
backpackable, for medium trip.
