Cool camera Jussi, and the lens looks pretty sweet!
Finally I have been a bit more active over this weekend, with 6 rolls of 120 to process. So expect to be bored with my many shots soon

Actually I have a question for tuco and any others that use flash and the 6x7 system. How useful is flash on a 67 without using one of the leaf shutter lenses? I realise that the sync speed is only 1/30, so is that shutter speed adequate for taking sharp portrait shots of people? Assuming that the camera is supported.

cheers

Indoors, with strobes, your shutter speed will be the speed of your flash if the ambient light does not contribute to the exposure. And I'd say the ambient light in the room needs to be at least 5-stops less of your fill flash as a minimum. Strobe preview lights are usually not a problem.

Outdoors where the ambient light may also be recorded, your subject needs to stand/sit very still or you'll end up with that gaussian blur around them if the key flash is a stop or more stronger. I have an example of that blur at sunset with flash I can scan if you are interested.

Thanks. I am pretty sure the wild stripes in the sky are jet trails, but they seem to work.

Three 645D images from a hike in The Narrows - Zion National Park, Utah

Here are three images from a hike I took Friday in the Virgin River Narrows in Zion National Park. 645D and 35mm lens. Two are stitched, one is a single frame.

Great hike although at one point the water was almost up to my neck in one of the deep pools. I was holding my camera bag above my head as I waded through. The temperature was about a 100 degrees F. inside Zion canyon and in the 70s within the Narrows. Water felt great!

Thanks, tuco. I would appreciate that if it's not too much of a hassle.

Looks like a lovely location. Great shots, love the water and the rock texture in #1 in particular.

Nice. I have a distinct memory of Kufstein although I didn't get to see the place other than the inside of the train station at 6am. Which looks to be a real pity.
The memory is 'distinct' as I got stranded there for a little while after oversleeping on an overnight train. Would have been nice if the conductor had of given me my passport back beforehand, like he did for the other passengers...!
Tirol is a very beautiful area.

I recently visited a friend who live on Lake Williston in the Rocky Mountains of northern British Columbia. The lake is a man made lake that was made in the 1960's and is the largest lake in B.C. My friend took me out on his boat and I brought my 67 along for the rider and took these.
I was limited to staying in the boat so these were all shot handheld in a moving(rocking) boat using the WLF.
All were shot on FujiPro 160S

Nice work Colton. Looks like you did a good job of keeping the camera steady and level on that boat. Not always an easy task.

Darn lens flare. And of course it's on the only one I liked. We'll see how the color roll turns out.
