An old Kodak 620 folder with a 'Twindar' lens. Had to make my own 620 spool and then roll a 120 film onto it.
It wasn't very hard, but it wasn't as easy as some have made it sound, either!

This Sunday , shooting with a Kowa Super66 , with 55 and 150 lenses : easy to use and noisy .
But I had a problem with a rollfilm back : 18 exposures on a normal 12 ex. back...
Edit : problem is solved .
Kowa back normally stops at 12 , this one doesn't , but it takes 12 exposures , others are on paper .

This week I am shooting with:
The brand-new-to-me Mamiya m645 w/80mm f/4 macro along with most likely a Kodak disposable and a Minolta XD-11 and who-knows-what lens.
Next week I am shooting with:
The XD-11, the m645 plus the Calumet 4x5, hopefully all on the same evening, under the same lights.

I had to look up the Szabad 8x10, John. Just when I thought I've heard of them all.... I thought you were just testing us to see if anyone actually reads this 'discussion'. ;-)
The story behind Mr. Szabad's cameras is very interesting and I really like his attitude toward things. Hasselblad kind of took advantage of him, I'd say.
Where did you find your Szabad?

I've been on a "quest" if you will... to find the most economical vintage range finder that does great work and has a decent build quality. Last week I used a Zorki-3, and a Kiev-4am. This week I'm giving a newly acquired Zorki-4K a work out plus a Fujica 35-EE, and if I have time a Zorki l. So far the Zorki-3 is doing a fine job overall. The Kiev-4 did great image quality with a Zeiss Opton but film transport problems turned up.
