  2. Mamiya ZD 22 MP Digital Back...?

    I know the early versions of the Mamiya ZD 22 MP Digital Backs had some issues, namely that it had some ugly "purple worms".... I am just wondering whether you are recommending this back for people photography for someone who is just about to enter the MF world. I am planning to buy a top back...

  4. Mamiya - Let's all thank Ross for this..

    Our percentage of Mamiya users here is growing rapidly thanks to Ross! I'm not sure if I should thank him or blame him... :happy I mean, now I have a reason to buy more stuff. Incidentally, http://mamiya.com has a wealth of information, but the site absolutely will NOT work with Firefox. ...

  6. Zeiss/Ikon 6x9

    All I can say is WOW! For a camera that dates from the mid to late 1930s, it takes some damn nice photos! And 6x9 negs are HUGE! Only problem is you really have to know distances to your subject, as well as depth of field - no TTL viewfinder on this puppy at all - there's one that'll give you an...

  10. Holy f-in cow!!!

    On a whim I headed across the Thames River into New London over lunch to see if the lab finished up my two rolls from my "new" TLR. Yep, he had 'em done well ahead of schedule (as usual for this lab - anyone in eastern CT who needs a top notch pro level lab, Jay's Photo Lab on Bank Street in New...

  11. Light Leaks... back to the drawing board...

    I had thought I had gotten all my light leaks fixed up... but found a VERY significant one with this batch of film on my 4x5 (the first batch!!)... So back to the drawing board for me... gotta take another look and make a decision if its the bellows leaking of one of the ends not clamped down...

  13. 160MP big enough for you?

    If you have a spare $50K to blow, and really want some cool landscape photos, then this is the camera for you. This thing is a 6x17 panorama digital camera that can produce a 160 megapixel image in one second. Take a look at how big it is! It makes me feel better about the stuff I shoot with. ...

  14. Almost bought a back... :(

    I've been watching body/back on eBay all week... ended today and its my birthday... but in the end I passed. I really am conflicted about paying the required money to buy a MF digital back, when in the end you'll be not that much better than a lesser expensive full frame DSLR. Here's some info......

  15. Breaking the ice for Trish...

    Yesterday she shot her first roll through the Mamiya and I think she is somewhat hooked!! It definately is a slowdown break when going from Digital to MF and I think she really appreciated it!... We both shot some B&W at BSRM which should look pretty cool and will be my first set of film shooting...

  16. Polaroid Film for the Medium back

    As you probally know, Polaroid 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 film for the Polaroid backs for medium format is used to check lighting, composition and exposures something that digitals give you on the LCD monitor. Of course the digital backs do cost bucks but the polaroid film is cheap insurance. I looked up my...

  17. A Wish List...

    I know everyone has a "wish list" and mine is very simple. 1. A Deardorff 8 x 10 large format body which is as scarce as "hens teeth" 2. A 360mm large format lens in a syncro-compur #3 shutter with lens board 3. 8 x10 film holders...maybe 6 or so. 4. And last but not least...A new Canon model...

  18. Medium Format Anyone?

    OK...so I know Trish and I are addicted... so we are broadening our horizons and got an inexpensive MF camera to try out shooting with. This is what some people would call "older style" shooting... but really it isnt. Medium Format has been around a while, but it is also a current format that...

  20. Converging Worlds - Digital and Medium Format

    I was just thinking about a trade I am doing with another photographer, and how worlds converge sometimes. I have shot digital for several years and really haven't touched film during that time. I have had a few jobs over the last year that I really could have used Medium Format for, and so I've...
