    MF at Como Park Conservatory

    I just wanted to let everyone know that Medium Format is alive and well in the Twin Cities. I was at the Como Park Conservatory (Orchid show) this last weekend. I saw a very unusual medium format camera amid the dozens of digital cameras (it made me wish I had brought my Hasselblad!). I'm not sure what the camera was. An AGFA maybe? It was small for MF and was press style; that is it had the fold-out bellows. It was beautifully made! The fellow had a nice collection of filters and was taking his time with every shot. he said it was German made and took 120 film. I, for the life of me, cannot recall the name of the camera. It wasn't anything I'd ever heard of before.

    Was it an Agfa Isolette?

    I was unaware of this camera fairly recently...but I love using it...

    not sure

    I'm not sure what it was. I didn't get the chance to look closely at it, but it did look at least similar to an Agfa Isolette.

    There are a few of us up here shooting Isolettes in the Cities. When Custom Camera (RIP) CLA'd my Isolette III, they mentioned that they'd done work on a good number of them recently.
