    I finally made the leap!

    Greetings,

    I just thought I would share with all my leap into medium format land. I have recently purchased from a friend (a good photogrpaher who has gone completely digital) a very well cared for Mamiya system. It includes: RB67 Pros S body with Beattie Intenscreen, Prism Finder, 2-120 film backs, 1 Mamiya polaroid film back, 1 NPC polaroid film back, 90mm Mamiya-Sekor f/3.8, 180mm Mamiya-Sekor f/4.5, lens hoods, Tiffen #8 & #11 filters, cable release, and bag. Price------$1,000.

    I've been waiting for something like this to come along for a long time! guess patience is virtue.

    Congratulations that is a great system for a great price. Bet you are itching to try the beast out!

    Happy Shooting

    The RB is such a great camera! I traded my mint RB-67 ProS to my best friend for his Hasselblad 500C/M and I regret it slightly. Although the Hasselblad is higher quality, I always found the RB to be more versatile due to the bellows focusing. Also, the 6x7 size versus the 6x6 is a major difference in my opinion. The only thing that was a b!tch is the rotating film back only because you can't really get an exact frame size. We also did a side by side test with the 2 cameras and there was no difference that we could tell as far as image quality.

    Good luck and enjoy it!

    I started this summer with the same set up you bought and have really enjoyed it. I did my second portrait session last night with my newly completed one light studio. I'm lucky to have family willing to pose themselves and thier kids. I shot one roll and a pack of polariod. Lots of fun.

    Beware of the large format. I made the mistake of attending the free LF workshop in Zion's national park this fall and now I have one of those cameras too. I managed to find a camera and lens for just over $100, so it wasn't too shocking but my wife still shakes her head and rolls her eyes

    See you around.

    With a deal like the one you got, I'm gonna see if I can find a photographer with some fine equipment who's vacilating between digi and film and talk him into digital if I can (no APUGer to be sure). Just as the 'light' comes on in his eyes as he imagines himself the proud owner of a Nikon D100 or a Canon 20D or the like, I'll make him a ridiculously low offer for his entire kit (LF of course) to relieve him of the burden of ebay or want ads so he can march right down to B&H and gratify himself instantly.

    Good idea there, Chuck!!
