    Hooked

    Processed my first images from a 6x7 neg the other day and I really don't know how I'll ever be satisfied with 35mm again! The amount of detail in the print is unreal.

    Medium format rules!

    If only the RZ67 wasn't so heavy! It does make me look like I know what I'm doing though

    Good Evening, Andrew,

    Be forewarned; the disease often progresses to involvement with LF.

    I know what you mean.. I also have an RZ67 and was amazed at the detail in the prints.. I got hooked on printing 6x7 negatives.. You want to be amazed even more? Shoot and print 4x5! I got use to hand holding my RZ67 and the weight is no longer an issue..

    And there are plenty of enablers here to help you move to LF. And I agree, Andrew - it was using MF that kept me in the darkroom when digital started getting more popular.

    and if you think 4x5 is amazing, try contact-printing from an ultra-large format negative (oh, say 11x14 or bigger)...

    Love my RZ too. You can use RB lenses on that camera. I've had mine for close to 30 years and it getting heavier each year. If you're shooting with just a hood, wait until you try it with a prism. It's a whole new world.

    My first MF was a Yashica 124 that I bought in 1969, never looked back. That inexpensive camera could blow the socks off 35mm.

    I love 6x7 also. I have an RB67 for a number of years now.

    The size of the film, the camera itself, is only a small part of the process. Just having a larger negative doesn't automatically make a better picture.
    I have all size of format options available to me, but not every size or every camera in a size, have the same advantages. Choosing which camera/format/size is a result of what my expectations are for the combo.

    I will say, all things being equal, I like larger negatives. JMHO
