    New to Medium Format: My new Mamiya RB67 Pro SD

    Hello all. I am somewhat new to Medium Format - I say somewhat new only because I did own a Yashica D TLR back in my college years, but that was nearly a half century ago! I have been a Konica 35mm SLR collector/enthusiast for a number of years, and begrudgingly admit to owning a DSLR which I use mainly to take photos for items I am listing on Ebay.

    I recently decided to take the plunge into medium format and have acquired a modest Mamiya RB67 Pro SD kit. So far I have the Pro SD body, KL 90mm f/3.5 lens, a brand new KL 127mm f/3.5 lens, WLF & prism (non CDS) finders, three Pro SD 120 backs and two Pro 120 backs. I'd like to get a Pro SD 120/220 motorized back and a 175mm shift lens (good luck finding that for a reasonable price).

    My primary interests are landscape and architecture (hence the 175 shift lens). I might like to take a foray into portraiture at some time in the future.

    I've posted photos of my kit on Flikr, here is a link if you are interested in seeing what I have:

    Have fun with your new set. I recently started with medium format and am impressed by the look of 6*7

    That's not a modest kit! You have pretty much top-of-the-line kit...!

    Enjoy!
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?

    You'll love your Mamiya RB6X7 Pro SD kit. I've had one for many years.

    I love my RB67. May I suggest a strong tripod and cable release. Good luck and welcome. Alan.

    Welcome to APUG. Nice outfit. I used to own an RZ67 which is similar. You will love those big 6x7 negatives.

    No problem owning a DSLR. It's just another tool. I'd hate to be taking Ebay pictures with my 8x10 and scanning them. It would get quite expensive and time consuming!

    I'm in Chase, MI (aka East Overshoe) a tiny place that doesn't show up on the maps much. Northwest lower Michigan, not too far from Michigan's western shore of Lake Michigan, about 35 miles east of Ludington (which is a large city right on Lake Michigan).
