    Houdel, try driving through the intersection of Washington and Michigan in Baldwin without stopping while one of the boys in brown (who's office is a 7 iron South of there) is watching you. Then try explaining that Lake County has no traffic lights and let us know what she or he says next.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    No problem if you are going north to south or south to north, its only flashing yellow in those directions. But I should have been more specific; I meant the full red-yellow-green traffic lights, not the traffic signals that flash red in one direction, yellow in the other. But even at that, Lake County has only three red-yellow flashing signals that I can think of.

    Your RB67 looks really nice. I have the slightly smaller Mamiya 7 and Mamiya 645 Pro TL. I usually take the Mamiya 7 because it is so convenient. The glass is amazing. Can easily use handheld, but it produces great landscapes on a tripod, and with the transparencies scanned to maximum resolution at a pro lab.

    Where do you have your film processed? I have no pro labs in my area; I have been sending my film out to a lab in San Francisco. No complaints with the lab, but the turn around time is terrible. 17 day average turn around, I'd like to find someplace that can do better than that.

    Hi Houdel, I saw your post and it reminded me about my RB67 Pro SD. I bought a mint one last year and haven't had much chance to use it due to house moves etc. But, the odd times I have I must say it's a great camera to use. Probably a good tripod is needed though I have used mine handheld with a Mamiya grip. I also have a c330s TLR - I do like Mamiya cameras.

    Houdel,
    If you're looking for E-6 processing, one of the best processors in the nation is just across the bridge up in the Soo. Take a look at http://www.agximaging.com/. I don't know what his turn around is, but the quality is reputed to be very high. If you're looking for C-41, there are a handfull in Grand Rapids and I'd be surprised if there wasn't at least one in Big Rapids, but I'm sure that you get there more frequently than I.

    As for the traffic signals, I guessed that was what you meant but I couldn't resist! Baldwin has become such a metropolis you know.

    I wouldn't send my films to any of the shops in GR - no way, no thanks. BTDT. I've used North Coast Photo and they did a good job (albeit a bit spendy, but was glad to have it done). There are many good places to send your film, but none near you - especially in Lake County ;-) .

    Fmajoe,Grand rapids only has one lab left that I know of, Allied Imaging. What's wrong with them? i think they only run film 1 or 2 days a week.
    I live here but run my own E6, C41, and b+w in a jobo so I haven't had the need for a lab.

    I called Allied in GR, they only run film one day/week IF they have enough orders on hand to warrant turning on the machine. They told me during the summer months it might take two months to accumulate enough film to process it. I did send a roll of 35mm & a roll of 120 to North Coast Photo Saturday by Priority Mail. Got a shipping notice from them Wed & according to the tracking number I should have it tomorrow (Fri). I can live with 1 week turn around. Cost $40.45 for developing, enhanced scanning, paging negatives & Priority Mail return postage. About twice what the 1 hour labs charge but I hope much better quality & much larger scans - plus the 1 hour labs don't do 120 anyhow. So when I figure in $5/roll for film & $5.75 to send the two rolls out I'm at $56.20 total, which figures out to about $0.78/exposure for 36mm and $2.61/exposure for 120.

    Great Kit, I have been building my RB kit for a while now, and aside from doing the light seals on my backs, its been a workhorse.
