    My Roundshot 28/220 has had only a few rolls of film through it, so I'm a new user. I'd be interested in contact with others who have the same brand. This model takes some education, and I'm nowhere near getting a diploma. I'm hoping we can share experiences, images, and tips on operating these beautiful cameras.

    I'm a roundshot user too,with a 65/70- 220 camera and a 35 camera
    They are wonderful devices, and I've put hundreds of rolls through mine.
    It's in great need of an update but you can see my roundshot camera page here:

    I got the 70mm used and the 35mm new. The 70 mm has been back to seitz twice for cleaning and tuning, but only after a lot of use. I have a lowe backback set up for carrying it around. I usually shot portra 160 and 400 and scan and digitally output prints. Great cameras! I do all my color pan work with them, and use various cirkuts for B&W.
    Best, Jamie Young
