    I am basically in love with my Mamiya C3. I have a picture or two on the board about it and how the outermost bellows was ripped, so I patched the thing with duct tape and light blocking curtain fabric underneath that. The bellows on mine fold all wrong on the outside, but on the inside it's fine. The lenses are clear with just a few cleaning marks, and take a really nice, sharp picture.

    Basically, pry it out of my cold, dead hands if you can.

    I should actually mention that the lens I have on the camera is likely a later issue than the camera itself. It's a blue dot.

    No idea what's going to happen next, but I'm hoping it involves being wrist deep in chemicals come the weekend.

    Stef- just don't ever try a Rollei if you want to stay in love with the C3. The ONLY benefit of the C3 is the interchangeable lenses.

    That's what everyone's told me. However, I have yet to find a 'flex for $75.

    Then don't try one anyone else has you'll suddenly find yourself calculating, "well, if my daughter only eats two meals a day... I can put that sucker on the plastic and pay it off in four months... she's only five, she won't miss the extra inch of height and it will be good for her to learn dieting skills early!"

    I found mine for $500 +/-, spent another $450 on the overhaul, and still consider it money well spent. Yeah, it's that good.

    This same rule applies to a Hasselblad. And 8x10.

    My first 5x7 contact print is going to blow my mind. I had to stop doing darkroom work for a while right after I got the camera. I've never printed the negatives I shot. These new ones are going to be better, and these will get contact printed. I'm excited.

    I consider the coolest medium format cameras to be the Hasselblads that were left on the moon. When they're not in the sunlight, that is.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I vote for the 2X3 Baby Century Graphic. It always gets good comments from folks when I bring it out.
