Another from the flags planted - I was struck how there were hundreds of them... Same KX, M 50/1.7, Ektar, but with a fake IR b&w conversion

I never cease to be amazed at what everyone gets out of the 67/6x7, real magic. Unfortunately I've seen the lenses and bodies and they sssscare me

The bokeh is creamy

Jake67, those are beautiful pictures. I especially like #3, nicely capture of the couple, your focus is spot on the bride.

Thanks for the comments guys! Compared to a big ol' DSLR system with a battery grip and a tele lens, the 67II with a prime lens is probably lighter and smaller. Don't get me wrong, the thing is a beast, but carrying it around on a strap and shooting sans tripod are totally doable. I have the big wooden baseball bat looking grip on mine. That's essential for hand shooting. Don't be put off by the size. They're easy to shoot with. The shutter sounds like a shotgun being cocked though. Not a quiet, non-obtrusive camera at all. You can't sneak up on anyone with a 67.

Agnostic- I want to develop C41 and E6 at home. Do you have a processor?

Beast or not, I'm gonna have to pick up either a 645 or 67 one of these days soon. Local shop has a couple of both in the consignment case - they taunt me!

doooiiiit...

I'm sure you know, but the 645 doesn't give you as large a frame as the 67. Makes a difference.

Nope, just tanks. Most difficult thing is getting the temps right otherwise you get colorshifts. I must say that I like the colorshifts you get from some films by using the blix (bleach/fix) at lower temp. Just posted two color shifted shots in the film grain thread.

Thanks. Here's one from the same day. From what I remember, I had just enough light to shoot handheld at 2.8 if I pushed the film one stop. (800iso) The effect of shooting people with that lens wide open is pretty dramatic. Sometimes it works.
