    I have been lurking for a few months, after having dusted off my RB67 ProS. After a twentysomething year hiatus I just ran a roll of Ektar through it. I sure have a lot of re-learning to do, but the whole process reminded me of why photography was so appealing to me in the first place. Thanks for the information/encouragement I receive from this wonderful group.

    Welcome to APUG Ben! I just purchased a RZ67 kit. I'll be out shooting it tomorrow. :smile:

    Welcome, Ben. This is a great community.

    But shame on you for letting that RB sit for so long!

    Seriously though, get out there and give that baby some exercise!

    Yay! Another RB67 user!

    I used to own an RZ which is pretty much the same camera. I have shot Hasselblad, Bronica and Pentax and the RZ was by far my favorite medium format camera for shooting portraits. I sold the RZ kit only because I needed the money to fund a 4x5.

    Welcome to the forum, Ben!

    Thanks to all for the warm welcome, have put in an order for film and a luna pro adapter with B&H. I enjoy landscapes and B&W compositions the most.

    Welcome to APUG, Ben. I don't have an RB67 (yet, anyway) but they sure look like a great setup!
