    SWC

I think it, along with the screw mount Leica's are the most beautiful cameras ever built with the plain prism Nikon F a close second. I'm an architect and what does it for me is the proportion. The SWC body is almost a perfect cube and the lens just about doubles the length to a 2 to 1 rectangle - very pleasing. The idea that it is easily held in one hand and with zone focusing and great depth of field it becomes a real point and shoot. A nearly silent shutter and a satisfying purr of the gears when you advance the film make it into a great picture taking experience.
    I second that!
    I recently got me an old SWC (1965) with chrome lens and shot my first rolls with it in Paris. I just got the negatives developed, but didn't have time yet to scan anything. It's a real nice camera to see and handle. It's light, easy to use and has an great angle of view.
    I really love it.

    BTW: I also just got me a Mamiya RB Pro-S with 4 lenses. Also a great working horse. Can't wait to take it out (when it stops raining).

    Hi Stone

    Many thanks for taking the time to look and to comment. It is actually a spare room in my flat in Brussels (my workshop is in North Sweden!) and my intention with the whole series is to show my complete workflow for people new to the process or those who feel that they can't allocate space to the process, but in a way that allows us to make analogue photographs without big fixed fancy darkrooms (I use an ice fishing tent!) and without enlargers. Hopefully to help people at least get started, though I don't use an enlarger. I think that this will become more apparent as the series grows, I am only in the early stages yet!

    The Fuji is certainly a beast and the negatives are, I think big enough to contact print - though I intend to do so as diptych and triptychs shooting specifically for that purpose - on 10x8 paper, either an AZO type of paper or using Palladium and/or Carbon Transfer

    Best wishes

    Dave

    For me Hasselblad 500 series is the coolest medium format camera. Next will be Contax 645

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    When I want to be ultra-retro-hipster cool, I like using a 2x3 Graflex SLR or 2x3 Crown Graphic with roll-film holders. People like having their pictures taken with one of those.

    The kind of beauty only parents can see in their children!

    But what more can one ask for? Ground glass focusing, or built-in cams for the range focusing. Bellows. Sheet film option. Interchangable lenses. Sports finder. German lenses. Oh, my!

    Well, not having to use a separate roll film holder would be nice, but who's asking?! LOL!
