Congratulations on the 6x7 - I think a 6x7 (well, a 67II, really) would be my dream camera.

The last three look quite over-exposed and have a blue colour shift (quite possibly due to the over-exposure). Maybe you need to review whatever method you're using to set the exposure?
I use a rather sophisticated exposure system called " complete utter guess work based on a sunny 16 rule" cos i dont have a hand held light meter. i really should buy one someday.

I like the 6x7 as i more like the mechanical cannonball as opposed to the electronic canonballs. I just like that its an enormous Spotmatic.

It really is a gigantic spotmatic. Or actually, more ike a gigantic K1000 with the metered prism, and more like a Gigantic Asahi SV without it.

There are a number of Android and iOS light-meter apps available. they work well. You can also pick up a basic digital P&S and set exposure based on what it chooses, or carry a metered 35mm film camera as well, which will give you a backup should the 6x7 have an issue, or chew through all of its film.

I have a Konica-Minolta incident meter, a Sekonic incident meter, a Pentax spot meter, and several handheld meters. My favorite non-battery meter is the GE PR-1, which works wonderfully in daylight conditions but, being a Selenium meter, will not work at all in the dark. They can be had in the Large Pizza to Nice Dinner Out price range.

A spot meter is needed for Zone System work, the incident meters are also useful to get the real exposure and not have to compensate for dark or bright subjects (And the Konica-Minolta is also a flash meter.)

Got up very early today based on weather forecast details indicating good autumn light. This is a few of Kilchrun Castle at the other end of Loch Awe from my home some 40 minutes drive away. I did some pruning of bushes a few months ago to give a clear view from the north shoe above a railway line so no need for editing out stray branches anymore. All with the Z.

FA 150mm 2.8




DFA 55mm 2.8 Handheld ISO 400




DFA 90mm macro at ISO 400 handheld pano. 7 verticle shots stitched in PS6

I see images like these and think I need a 645z, but what I really need is to travel more.

Very nice pictures!
