An fR Reporter camera (an inexpensive 2.25x3.25 press camera) with a 4" Petzval mounted on a copal #1 shutter. Who knows? The lens seems to cover 6x6 better than 6x9 and it would really help to have a view screen.... (G.A.S. attack may be imminent) Maybe a Bronica or it's more expensive cousins?

Franka Rolfix with Radionar lens 6x9 with Fuji Acros 100, Bronica ETRS for "street shooting 4th of July), really enjoying the 120 format lately, and a Nikon N80 (Kodachrome for fireworks of course!).
I am 47, and have been a photo hobbyist since about 1977, worked for a studio for 5 years, owned a Bronica ETRS back in the 80s, and various Nikon equipment. Since purchasing the Franka Rolfix and shooting 6x9cm B&W and making my own prints again in a "wet darkroom" I realized something. All the money I spent on 35mm and 645 format equipment over the years was just an attempt to achieve through technology (better lenses?) what the older larger formats could achieve by sheer size. I am not 100 percent sure but I think the negatives from my Frank Rolfix (which I got on E-bay for under $50 US) are sharper than those shot with my Bronica ETRS, at least they appear sharper on the print easel under the focusing aid, and the 11x14 prints are outstanding (yes a bit of softness in the corners, but I like the effect).
I am not sure that moving up to 4x5 would fit my shooting style, but a Graflex Century with a 6x9 back (or two, or three), and some lens movement seems very attractive, and I would not have to upgrade my darkroom.
And my Dad said I would never learn anything.

This weekend, it was a new-to-me Ricoh 500G rangefinder loaded with Kodak BW400CN. This is the first proper roll through the camera, and first time I've used the BW400CN film.
It's quite a nice little camera to use, shutter priority or manual, and works (meterless) without batteries. It does have a slightly strange sounding shutter - as sort of "ping" sound. All part of the character I suppose.
I picked the roll up yesterday from the photo shop, and the results look good.

I WAS supposed to be trying out an Agifold. Alas when I tried to give it a CLA I found the rangefinder had shed most of the siver (or Aluminium) from it's semi-silvered beam splitter. Consequently I have left it in bits whilst I source a new bit of semi-silvered glass.
So instead - I've resurrected a Voigtlander Perkeo I. I tried this out a few weeks ago, it was a lemon :(
I purchased it off eBargumBay... It looked good but was incapable of taking a sharp picture. Ater a bit of TLC it seems someone had taken the front focussing ring off, maybe to clean the otics - and refitted it without setting up the distance scale.
A few minutes with a bright light and a tape measure and hopefully it may perform a little better, now :)
