This week I am using a Mamiya RB67
This week I am using a Mamiya RB67 with a 127mm lens that I purchased on e-bay three weeks ago. Although I like the larger 6x7 negative for printing, the camera is rather unwealdy compared with my Mamiya 645 or, especially, my Fuji GS645 rangefinder. I will therefore resell the RB67 on e-bay. One of the great things about these great old film cameras is that they are inexpensive and if you don't like them you are not stuck with a great financial invenstment! (I think that I will next try a Rolleiflex SL66).
Kodak Signet 80- American RF with interchangeable lenses. And a 1x viewfinder, just like the Nikon RF's.
Now in Tucson for a couple of weeks. Today I loaded up the F5 and the Pentax 67II and took a drive into the "back country". Takes longer and longer to get there through all the "suburban sprawl".
Just a couple of shots on each as, would you believe it, it was mostly cloudy in SE AZ today!
The weather is weird everywhere this Autumn!
The Mamiya C220 with 65mm and 135mm lenses is in the small "road trip" camera case for tomorrow.
I'm trying to shoot more transparency film with this, now that I have finally obtained my own MF projector.
Or should that that last observation be posted in the "process or final print" thread. ??

my big, huge, clunky, 15 th century, sewing machine like, iron bridge like, machine age, Calumet C1 view camera on a heavy tripod. Taking some family portraits at home.
Should be using my 4x5 or 5x7, what's the matter with me? I guess I'm getting ready for an 11x14. Oh, I forgot that I have a Seneca 8x10, what was I thinking?

Are these threads supposed to die and be forgotten or is it reasonable to resurrect them?
I've had a bit of fun over the past three weeks, throwing away my hard-earned on Ebay purchases. I've loaded several of these cameras and intend to try them out over the next week or three.
Cosina CT1-A (Perutz 100)

Not to mention the cameras I've owned for some time and intend using this week.

Well, I have to use film so I can fit food in the refrigerator.
This weekend I finished up a roll of Konica 200 which was in my Fed 4 which has been in my car for the last six months.
I took my son to Carisbrooke castle and wished I had brought a camera then remembered the Fed.
I'm loading up my Fujica ST801 with Kodak UC100 for the holiday week-end.
