There are medium format cameras that won't break your back (see article in Aug '99 issue of Outdoor Photographer on hiking with Mamiya 7). These cameras are not as versatile as 35mm systems, but do a fine job for some applications (landscape for instance). I use the Mamiya 7 and a 35mm system, each has its place. The Mamiya gives larger scanned files and better definition for large output (say 16 x 20" or larger). You don't necessairly need a drum scan to see this benefit in medium format. The Imacon CCD scanner will give 2400 dpi in this format, an 800% enlargement for output at 300 dpi.
