I had that camera also and was as you described. I had to take some family 
portraits at a wedding once, it produced fantastic pictures. For some reason it 
worked well with Fuji Superia Reala for me. But I liked that camera. The XPan 
was also similarly fun to use, with nice lenses. Except that with my film 
scanner, it was a pain to scan the extra wide images.
