Some day not too far away I'll get around to scanning some rolls made with Pentaxes, in the mean time I'll post some pictures with the Blad from last holidays back home.

Hasselblad 500C & 80mm f/2.8 Planar T*, Fuji Provia 100F.

Let's call this a "Treelogy"







(They're actually best viewed next to one another rather than in a column-like display, but oh well).

I see the 645 is working just as well for you as the 67...

I've been using my 124G mostly for medium format recently but you're making me want to grab the 645 instead.

(So many cameras... so little time...)

Another with the 645z and HD 28-45mm. This one was shot at f20 and is a bit of tough PP challenge with extreme DR and the diffraction influence of the small aperture.

I didn't like the 645 "boxy look" at all but the idea of shooting 16 shots vs the 67 10 shots sound too tempting (for beginner film shooter like me), and the fact that in the "long run", my 645 lenses can be use on the digital (maybe after several more generations of 645D,Z, I could afford one) make me get a 645N. To my surprise, the camera is very pleasant to use, huge, clear VF (It appear bigger than the 67 VF!) and very well damped mirror slap (many many times better than 67). The only 'negative' about it is the manual/auto focus on/off switch is only on the lens, which for someone like me who likes to turn it on and off (for recompose) is not very convenient. I still love the look of 67 and it's big negatives. But 645N is really a great bargain (and hidden gem) MF camera, highly recommended! ...(regret not getting it earlier before the 645Z really drive up all the used lens prices)

Most (all?) of the other FA lenses have a push-pull focus ring to switch between AF and MF, easier to do without looking.

My first image post.

Just got my Pentax 67 loaded with some film and did my first walk around shoot. This shot was handheld with Portra 400. Scanned with epson v700

PENTAX 67II + 105mm (Extension tube #1), Kodak Portra 160.

it's very difficult to get the focus with the extension tube added... I basically moving camera back and forth instead of moving the focus ring...
any tips?

Nice result! The Pentax 67 Helicoid Extension Tube makes it a bit easier, as you adjust the extension instead of moving the camera.

Otherwise a tripod is recommended.

I don't mean to nit-pick but why are people posting B&W images when what people really want to see is how the camera handles color and dynamic range.
Maybe I'm just weird, but I thought this thread was about appreciating photography, not a crowdsourced camera review.
