My Bronica ETRSi

I just pulled out my Bronica ETRSi that I haven't used in over three years. It's like new. I'll tell you..It sure felt weird and antiquated. I stuck a Poloroid Back on to the camera and approximated the shutter speed and aperture which I set at f2.8 and 1/15th of a second and "CLANCK"...What a commitment. Now that was an event. Looked at it, played with a couple of lenses and put it back in the bag and in to the cupboard...Remind me to check the battery in a couple of years....Geeeeezzzz.....

Oh yeah...DUST, scanner, ouch, enough..I forgot the joy!

Sad Eh?

Well Ben if all else fails you have a backup . That's if you still remember how to use it in a couple of years let alone where the battery is.

You know age does strange things to a person.

Ahhhhhhh what were we talking about???

I swear, I didn't know how to use it when I pulled it out...OH, I mean the camera. I literally had to re-orient myself to using it..I mean the camera. I mean I pulled it out of the bag..looked at it and thought.."Heavy F--Ker"..Feels Nice...Nah Forget about it. Perhaps if I want to do a E6 to C41 shoot it will come in handy. That is if I can still get film developed. I say developed as I still have about 100 rolls of FujiChrome from the time I was sponsored by Fuji. Never had to buy the stuff..They sent it to me in truck loads. I gave away about twenty rolls to an assistant who still occasionally uses the stuff...I'll probably use it again for a "Look"...

Neb...Ahhhh BNE...No that's not it it's Dork...Ahhh Biggis Dorkus Maximus..

Ah yes I remember now it is Bentax??? Maybe..
