I just found an unprocessed oldie from 2015, a pano using the 645D:

Mike and Paul - stunning shots!!!!!

---------- Post added 06-16-19 at 10:37 PM ----------

A bit of fun at Templo del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus (Temple of the Sacred Heart of Jesus) overlooking Barcelona. I was there for the star trail picture that I posted a couple of weeks ago. But, after shooting that sequence, I noticed a red moon rising - so I shot it using my 6x7 300mm EDIF lens. Then it occurred to me that it would look interesting composited onto one of the shots taken for the stars - using the Pentax 55mm f2.8 DFA lens. Both using 645Z.

Bit of fun really...

A couple of mountain laurels doing their spring thing

645Z camera jpgs using FA 120mm macro. No post processing, although the white one in shade could tolerate some exposure adjustment if one didn't want it to look like shade.

Thanks so much, my friend. But I would exchange it for your 'burn' on the California Delta - that's a smashing shot!

Getting my color developing up and running. A couple of scenes from a day hike last weekend with my rangefinder. I'm also working towards developing E-6 with sheet film.

A very slow shutter speed. The guy just started to leave when I snapped the picture. Taking it felt like the equivalent of a Hail Mary pass in football with this film.

More examples of why I loved that camera. One of the most perfect combinations of lens, format, body form factor (although I had the II), and simplicity ever produced, IMO. And you always use it to good effect, true of the fence image as well.

You have inspired me to learn how to develop color film as I did not know that this kit makes it very simple.

As for the Fuji GSW690, it is such a joy for me to use this camera for the old school basic operation, and the quality one gets from a 6x9 negative with a top-notch lens.

Thanks. It gets a lot of use relative to my other film cameras which I find surprising. I didn't think I'd use a fixed lens camera so much when I first got it. But I do. I'm also looking for the 90mm version of this camera.

Good deal. Getting some basic equipment can help make the process workable so it's not a burden working with the higher temperature range. I'd avoid using SS tanks with the rubber lid that is common in BW developing. The warm temperatures can soften the lid so it doesn't fit so tight and can make for a leaky mess often.

Another sign of spring. The pond is 'open for business.' There are at least 3 froggies in this photo. 645Z with 75mm. This lens is practically weightless compared to the zooms and 67 glass. Camera jpeg.

Using medium format for garden shots

The 645Z and its great stable of lenses are fantastic for all the wonderful landscapes on this thread, but not living near great landscape subject matter, I use it for flower and garden shots where its excellence still shines through.
