Thanks Tuco! Here are a couple more with the P67. These were taken on a hike near Sedona, Arizona about 10 years ago. Original was in color, scanned with the Epson 2450, then coverted to B&W in Photoshop. I can't decide which I like better. What do folks here think?

Definitely color. The B&W loses a lot of contrast in the tree/ bushes area, so there isn't as much visual interest.

Plus, the blue sky vs. red rocks is what makes the shot. IMHO, of course!

Definitely B&W
But I would push the foliage a little bit lighter in the forefront tree.

Cheers,

Some very nice shots, here.

We really should have another separate thread called "Post your 67 shots." This thread is convincing proof that the Pentax 67 really is a completely different animal.


(My 6x7 shots are from another type of camera, or I'd start it myself)

It's a good idea GeneV, there is a lot of 6x7 shoots in this 645 topic. They sure deserve their own, I realy like them

Not to mention giving us 645'rs feelings of inadequacy.

I like your shot, BTW. The 645 is a great "people" camera.

My vote is for just a 120 Roll thread. The thread will be more active since we have people shooting from 645 to 6x9.

We have an open format (and camera brand for 120) thread on the "show us your film shots" thread, and it is great. If we want a 120 roll film thread, that would be fine, too. We need to name it something else, though.

Some 645 inspiration from somewhere would be nice, and 645 seems to be the minority in this thread (not that I'm helping much).

Great shots, Bensonga. I see you've used a 67 - but now also a complete 645 set. Surely you won't hike with both, do you? So how useful is it to have both systems with their lenses if you are not needing one as a backup for the other?
(I'm hesitating between a 6x7 with four lenses, and an only slightly cheaper K-x with kit lens, but I already have a 645 set. I fear it is greed that makes me eye the 6x7, because I will not part from the 645. And yet, the size of the negative. The availability of a shift-lens.
Yet the K-x would work with my 645 lenses as well as three SMC M-ones for a 35mm KX which I no longer use. I have no digital body.)

Good points....this morning I actually decided to send most of the manual focus 645 A lenses I purchased back to KEH. I haven't decided for sure whether to keep the 80-160 or not. I like the fit and feel of the P67 lenses on the 645 alot and there just isn't a compelling reason for me to have both 67 and 645 manual focus lenses. Someday I'll probably pick up some 645 FA lenses. I have 11 P67 lenses to choose from when using the 645NII. That should be enough, I just got carried away because the 645 A lenses were so inexpensive (relative to my Hasselbald Zeiss lenses anyways).
