    In the 60s, I shot a lot of film on my father's old Ciroflex 6x6 camera. I still have negatives of the first astronauts walking on the moon that I shot off of the TV. In the 70s I shot with a Yashica 635 that I bought new in a pawn shop. I never tried the 35mm attachment, but I shot a lot of 120 film in it. By the 80s, I had turned to large format and the shutter broke in the Yashica, so I was out of MF.

    Earlier this year I got a super deal on an RB67 with the 90mm lens. I've had a ball with it - adding a prism viewer and a 250mm lens to the kit. I have sheet film holders that will fit it, so I use it like a small, reflex view camera in a way.

    Oh, and I also have an unusual Agfa 6x9 box camera that appears to have been made in France - it has a three-position focusing device on top labeled in French, and a three position sliding f-stop. I just wish I knew the shutter speed. Ha. It appears to have been made in the 30s and works just fine with 100-speed film

    90% of my shooting is using roll film these days -- primarily a Mamiya 7II system, but also a 6x9 or 6x12 back on my Linhof Technikardan or Gaoersi 4x5 "handheld". I pretty much only shoot Kodak Portra 400NC which I purchase in bulk from Adorama.

    Soon I will have a 37mm fisheye to mount onto my Linhof for use with the 6x9 back -- I can't wait to try it out!

    Bronica SQ-B and a Lubitel 160B (for 'fun ') are my main use cameras. I usually use Adox 125 film (FP4+ relabled) but I sometimes use Portra or Fuji transparency film. I have never seen anything more stunning than 6 x 6 chromes !
    Hmm- Wonder if she'd notice if I bought that :)

    1. How many people are still using their medium format cameras?

    Add me to the list, but less frequently nowadays.

    2. What are some of your fond moments and/or experiences?

    I've used MF mostly for model work, and the models are occasionally less than fully clad. With careful casting, they've all been nice people, so all of the shoots have been pleasant.

    3. Which Do You Prefer To Shoot, Color or Black and White?

    Yes. But, the balance is heavier on the B&W side, I must admit.

    4. What type(s) of medium format camera/accessories do you own?

    6x6, Hassies.

    I acquired a Bronica S2a from an APUG member some time ago, and I currently use it a lot more than my 35mm or LF equipment. I have three backs and have 40, 50, 80, 100 and 150mm lenses for it (a slight attack of GAS...).

    In addition, I have a nice Yashica 635 (with a Yashinon lens), which I also use a lot.

    I like the larger slide or negative I get from it compared to 35mm, and it´s easier to carry around than my LF gear. And I´ve always loved the square format.

    I still use a lot of medium format film, either Pro 160S or Portra 800. I shoot mostly colour neg. I'm rather ditzy and get confused with names, but I think that I have a Sony Seagull or something. It's the one with the knob on the side. No, I remember now, it's on the top. For a technical eye-opening sort of medium format memory, I guess that the results from the first time I used a Mamiya Super 23 to shoot 6x9 landscape stand out.

    Best,
    Helen

    I use MF stuff regularly. Sometimes a roll a week if just local stuff, sometimes several rolls if I take a trip out of town. For subject matter I have a son, g/f, Henry Ford Museum, Greenfield Village, farms, Lake Erie, Toledo and Detroit, museums, outdoors.

    I usually shoot a Rolleiflex or a Rolleicord V, but if I want bigger images and rect. format, I also have a Kodak Medalist and a Zeiss Ikonta, both 6x9. But somehow, the groundglass experience of a TLR is more satisfying to me, or maybe more exotic since I grew up with SLR and rangefinder 35mm.

    B/W is my workhorse film, with color reserved for special occasions (like vacation). I soup the B/W at home, but take color into a lab.

    I love the big images, and would also like to try 8x10, or 4x5, and contact printing those negs.

    I given a lot of thought to getting an RZ67 as well as a Mamiya 7II. Not sure which I will get first. Right now, the only MF I shoot is from a Horseman 6x12 back on my Toyo.
