You guys (Colton, Phil, and Tuco) are killing me with these beautiful medium format shots. It's on my to-do list, but I haven't yet found the right camera for the right price. For the nonce, I'll just have to enjoy the vicarious thrills you are all so generously providing.

Best,
Kevin
Here's more to push you toward MF Kevin.

Pentax 67, SMC Pentax 67 200/4, Kodak TMAX 100

You must be the devil. Where are you hiding the horns and the tail? I'll keep cruising CraigsList, the marketplace here, and my local camera shop. Sooner or later, lightning will strike and I will own a medium format Pentax. It will be mine. MWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Best,
Kevin

Thanks gofour

I have more to post but I browse the forums by mobile phone for few days. All those shots i can't see well is killing me!

Like kevin, i'm looking for a cheap MF, do dig a bit into portraiture. I'm scouting all the place i can

If i can get a Pentax i'll start to be a hard-core Pentax user (Q -soon-, APS-C, Film FF, and Film MF )

Nice landscape. Do you shoot your landscapes with the WLF?

Yup, always. I pretty much only use the prism for close-up/macro work. I've even taken a few vertical oriented shots with the WLF on tripod.

From the archives. Early morning at Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier in Washington State. I have a color version taken at sunset the prior day. I thought I'd get the BW added to it.

Yeah. A WLF and portrait orientation is no big deal on a tripod. But some people make it out to be like it's some kind of problem. Whatever.

Ya, it's a little weird the first time but once you figure it out it's pretty easy.
BTW, nice shot!

it's actually only hard when you don't use the camera ofter, even landscape orientation is then. on a tripod it's a piece of cake, handheld a little harder.
In the case of cameras with a WL (like the Bronica I have in the marketplace) there are also optional prisms

Many great shots here

My little contribution : Avenue Friedland, and the Arc of Triumph, Paris, France. July 14th.


Can be TriX / Tmax or Neopan 400 DA40 on MZ-5n, probably f16 and 1/400.

I'm off to Paris in 10 days time. I love the place and its a photographers heaven. Where abouts in Burgundy are you going? We spent some time around Mâcon a couple of years ago. It helps if you love good wine If you are near Chalon-sur-Saône, the Musée Nicéphore Niépce is a good photographic museum
