probably a mamiya m645 and an 80mm lens
suggestions/non digi hate?
What do you plan on doing with said medium format?
b&w was my first true love with photography, and I want to get back into it. I have 4 35mm film bodies, but I want to try something new
btw, my brothers hs friends rent my 35mm cams for like 100-150$/semester
try a 4x5 instead
whats the diffrence?
large format vs medium format
very different approach, medium is more like 35mm where as large format is a bit different to say the least.
You can do more with large format, like extreme macros, tilts and shifts, and unprecidented image quality
i was going to say that, a pentax 6x7, buddy shoots wedding portraits with it (rest of wedding digital) I can't wait till next quarter, large format class =)
why stop at 6x7 when you can use 8x10
why stop at that when you could have an airplane hanger...
you can rent a 20x24 polaroid cam in san fran. only 8 in the world. Comes with an assistant, only $200 per shot
I don't give a shit about that stuff
keh has lens+body for ~300$
i may click, its less than a pos lens for my digicam
my issue is that i've been finding the dslr impersonal as hell the last few weeks. It works nice for action, but that's it
+ large format will pwn my wallet. I'm a poor student as it is
I think i saw something about that camera, used for takeing pictures of paintings right?
step up the the RB67
with a 6x7 you can use 120 medium format films and youtend to get cameras with rotating backs
most 645 cameras i've seen have fixed backs, which get to be retarded to use when using waist-level viewfinders and such
when you can get an RZ67 too, why not
You're the dude I was looking for
so the rb67 is what I want?
time to check www.keh.com
is there any other place worth looking?
I want to spend as little as possible to save for film
127 F3.8 NB (77) MEDIUM FORMAT SLR MANUAL FOCUS STANDARD ANGLE LENS
RB67 WITH WAISTLEVEL MEDIUM FORMAT SLR MANUAL FOCUS CAMERA BODY
comes out to 241$
he said he didn't have much $$... so I suggested the RB, but, if you can go for the RZ67, do it.
sounds like a good deal to me... price has come down quite a bit since I bought mine. If you plan on using it to shoot landscapes though, I'd look into buying the 50 or the 65 lens. I have the 65, and it's pretty good all around lens.
thanks for all the help
I use a fixed 35 on my slr, so this would be close to the same thing?
65 is like 3 times the price of a standard though
I don't have my little conversion chart here at home, but if I remember, the 65 is close to 34mm....
The one on KEH is the super expensive one... mine is the C, not the KL. The KL is mega pricey... you should be able to get the C for around 200
