This week I have a Kodak Brownie No. 2 (120, 6x9, c. 1931) and a Nikon F that I know I will be using for sure. Possibly my Sinar C as well, but probably not until a few weeks down the road. I am going to load the holders, however, in case something comes up.
Will also be starting construction on an 8x10 box camera so I can get rid of those pieces of HP3 that I have lying around. I am sure they are 90% fog by now, but hey; worth trying.

Having promised a friend that I would take some pictures at his wedding next weekend I should put a few test rolls through my Mamiya RB67 tomorrow.
Thanks to some advice on another thread, I have made a bounce attachment for my Vivitar 285 flash and I need to test this out too.

Heading down to Death Valley for a week before it gets too crazy hot, and taking the new Tachihara 8x10 and an old Mamiya 645 1000s. Looks like it's gonna be a full moon while I'm there, so might do some night shots...now where'd those reciprocity charts go for fp4+? :)

I recently bought a Minolta Maxxum 7000 with a Tamron 28-200 APO lens really cheap on ebay so I've been using it a lot lately, loaded with Tmax 400. It's the 1st auto focus camera I have had. I had better load up the MF & LF cameras soon though. I think they are getting jealous.:)

Shot a roll of Tri-x through a Minolta XE-7 yesterday.

My Rolleiflex MX-EVS is sitting in the living room since I got it, and is the most used camera at this time (it used to be the Yashica Mat 124 previously, but that one is gone for a CLA).
I experiment with TXP/Neopan 400/HP5 to decide which film will become my favourite (I like TXP but am not very happy with Kodak's support to B&W)

I'm shooting Fuji Velvia 100 in my Canon T90, and carrying a Canon A1 body loaded with Fuji Pro 160S, two lenses a Canon 35-70,and 70-150,I find this combination gives me the maximum versatility, with the minimum weight for walking around photography.

Today will mark the beginning of actual serious shooting with the Graphic View II I just bought. I'm shooting with a no-name brassie and a Rodenstock Geronar with fungus.
Oh, it's SO much fun. :D Being an experimenter by nature, 4x5 has opened up some seriously entertaining doors. I'm having more fun with this camera than I've had in years.
Can't shoot Rinoa with it, though. She's crawling now...moves too fast. :D

Чайка (http://www.collection-appareils.fr/belomo/html/chaika_II.php) (Cha´ka) half-frame camera with Fuji acros 100
Just tested the 90mm and 180mm lenses on my new RB67 Pro S, focus screen is right on and everything works as expected. Using view camera lenses on an RB, why not? Using sheet film holders on an RB, why not?
Having fun with it, got the Beseler head converted, up and working. Next is the Durst head and then I will be shooting with a large format again.

I'm going into the city today to do some street photography, since it's such a warm sunny day, I'm shooting Fuji Reala with my Contax 2 and 5cm 1.5 Sonnar, I use this camera too rarely because of it's age ( it's older than I am ) and it's sentimental value, my dad gave me it when I was thirteen ,and sparked off my lifelong passion for photography.
