My Bronica GS-1 6x7 was sadly stolen while travelling in Indonesia. I had some problems with focusing it though, as the DOF with tele-lenses is just too small, and decided my next camera would have autofocus. Just got my Pentax 645N, which compared to the alternatives seemed an absolute bargain. This is Portra 160 scanned at 4000 dpi on a Microtek Artixscan 120tf. Quality is fantastic, but then this is medium format, after all!
Lovely shot.

The stock screen on my 500C/M was really hard to focus too. But they made better ones and I put one in. Much better. Perhaps your Bronica was the same.

Actually I bought a Beattie screen with a split-screen for the GS-1, which was very bright (and expensive!). However, I felt my focus was even worse after I installed it - maybe the screen/camera needed some fine tuning to make the focus perfect (even when the split-screen lined up, focus seemed off on the negatives). I might get a new GS-1 in the future, they are quite cheap, but will send it directly to a shop for adjustment. All in all it's a great camera - much lighter and usable than the RZ 67, in my view

My wife and I visited the city of Ofunato in Iwate Prefecture over New Years. I got up early on the 31st and found a high spot overlooking the bay to shoot the sunset. The photos aren't anything remarkable but the tragic story of the March 11, 2011 tsunami is far from over in this part of the country. The harbors and inlets pictured here are part of the Hirota Peninsula which was ravaged by the water that day. All the harbors were completely destroyed, entire fleets of fishing vessels lost and all the the aquaculture that fills these bays was washed away. The entire economic infrastructure was demolished. And the human toll was in the thousands, just in the areas I could see from this lookout. Help was especially slow to come to this area because at the base of the peninsula is a large area of flat farm land that lies barely above sea level. It was entirely flooded, essentially cutting the whole peninsula off from the mainland. We've had the privilege of being involved in the relief efforts ever since and continue to make trips up there every 2-3 months.

While the ocean has been a source of unspeakable tragedy for this area, it is also the source of almost everyone's livelihood and also a source of incredibly beautiful landscapes. While some areas have been rebuilt there are still entire towns and cities that haven't. The debris has been cleaned up and in some areas you just see acres and acres of empty land, with no hint of what happened other than the concrete foundations that still lie their, washed clean of everything they help up. But when ever I get the chance I like to take photos that focus on the hope, the new life that is emerging and the natural beauty of the area. Thanks for letting me ramble a bit.

Beautiful pictures and a compelling story. My Dad lived just south of here, in Sendai, in the '50s.

Great shot! User itshimitis was kind enough to agree to my posting of an "alternative" reading of his image (modified colour and saturation, and different crop):
