    Hi All,
    Joined this forum last week and started posting without a proper introduction. So finally a short introduction :whistling:

    I'm Mark, a 43yrs old photographer from Holland (Utrecht area). I recently got my deep dive into the world of film and medium format photography by buying a RZ67 II set with 50 mm, 110 mm and 180 mm lenses. I want to use the RZ67II mainly in studio setting (stills and fine art model), but also outside for Architecture/Street and landscapes. My other camera is a 5DII.

    Hope to have a good time here on APUG.

    Thanks,

    Mark

    Wellcome to the Forum.

    You have excellent 67 camera and lenses. I am forum member for 7 years and saw most natural and breathtaking pictures from that lens group.
    They were taken under nordic light and like Vermeer. I think best camera for North Sea light. I heard diamond business is great there and old timers were selecting the diamonds quality with seeing the yellow orange minimal cast while holding the diamond pieces againts the sky.
    They say purest white light is at Holland. In my opinion , you could open the windows of your studio and see the limits of lenses and yourself.
    I saw some ultra saturated and having an alien appearance with these lens under dim light but as I told you , each lens have a soft spot.

    By the way We dont talk about digital cameras here but at DPUG.

    If you will scan and make digital printed film , it is the address.

    Welcome!

    Did you see that film "Dutch Light"? Is the light really nice there, or is it a myth based on the style of the old masters?
