Very nice! I am still on the lookout for a TLR and a folder myself.

The LX waist level is pretty great. It makes street shooting a bit more stealthy, lets you get those low angle shots, and it is just fun to use. Plus you can shoot through the viewfinder, which makes for some cool photos.

That's a nice shot!

But did you take the shot with the Hassy's WL or eyelevel finder . . .

Thanks! This was with the waist level finder. I do have a PME 5 viewfinder, but it has been collecting dust ever since I got my waist level. WL is the way to go, really fun to shoot with....plus the PME never metered correctly with my focusing screen anyway

WOW!
I thought my Spotmatic was heavy & my F2 fotomic was huge, I guess it's been a while since I've seen a Hassie.
One of the guys I learned film from shot one of them, always had at least 3 lenses too. They're absolute beasts to carry, but they really do produce.
Do you find the Eye-level noticeably more annoying to use? The above-mentioned guy swore it was worth the slight slow-down to use the waist level and hand-held meter 95-98% of the time.

If you think the Hassy is big and heavy then you haven't tried a Mamiya RZ67 Pro II . . .

As a man of a certain...hairstyle...the Balda Baldessa is one of my favourite cameras.

Colton...is your Toyocaflex a 127 camera? It sure looks petite next to the 6x7. Then again, almost everything looks petite next to the 6x7!!

Nope, it's 120. It's the same size as my friends YashicaMat 124G.
Ya, it's quit petite next to the 67

Nice, it would look even smaller if you had the TTL prism mounted!

Leica IIIf with Summitar Lens

Although I have many 35mm Pentax Cameras, this old friend has taken thousands of photos for me! My Father gave this to me as a 35th Birthday gift... many years ago. It is an amazing tool that renders extremely fine pictures and is quite dear to me.
