    i love my RB! i take it everywhere! it has been to SE Asia for the last 6 years! i have shot several weddings (i am not a wedding photog per say) i use my 35mm film nikon, my RB and for my personal entertainment (and the entertainmant of some of the guests) i shoot 4x5 formal poses! i love film, and that is what i shoot. if you want a digital work flow then there are 100s of wedding photogs to choose from, but if you want me, then you get film!

    i iwll be uploading some of my photos from this trip to asia...stay tuned.

    I used my Bronica ETRS and I was very pleased with the results. It was planned to be an outside event and I was just going to use a bit of fill flash - So obviously, it was the wettest day of the year and it was all done inside with full flash.

    I would have used my RB67 but I didn't want to pay the extra processing and printing costs! 10 shots per roll RB67, 15 shots per roll ETRS.

    Printed at 6" x 8", you can't tell anyway.

    One thing which surprised me was that nobody else took any pictures at all. I was expecteing a few guests to take digi compact and phone snaps.

    The only cameras I would consider using during a ceremony are leaf shuttered TLRs and rangefinders.

    I'm shooting weddings with nothing else but film. Some outdoor poses, the bride and groom with their families, the cermony and cutting the cake. If requested one day prior to the wedding some 6x9 slides in a beautiful environment for hughe prints. That's it. For the other images I ask the couple to collect the memory cards or cd copies, screen them for the best shots, so we can produce a separate album. The result: better quality from us and total coverage without hassle, without long discussions why brand >x< is better suited for a wedding than brand >y< etc. And no trouble with interfering mobile phone or P&S flashes. If people don't like this approach (=workflow), we send them to someone else because we strive for quality and not 'cheap & cheerful & good enough'.

    The last wedding I shot with a Mamiya M645 - aroundabout 20 rolls of Kodak Portra 100 & 400, and because I'd triple prepared and was thinking and double thinking everything I was doing - the success rate was very high, with only a couple of dud shots, and nothing missed thanks to my partner spooling spare inserts. The Mamiya has a LOUD shutter, but film makes me wait for the "moment" anyway, so I'm shooting less (and less annoyingly) than digital, but composing better and getting what ends up useful more often - and I only used one 80mm prime, further narrowing any fussing. The medium format softness just looks sooo nice, and the new Portra grain is lovely!

    The ETRS is loud too. I only took two shots during the ceremony (which was very informal anyway) and staged the rest afterwards.

    My personal preference is to shoot weddings with a quiet 6x7cm rangefinder. However, since more and more customers seem to want high quantities of digital candids, I also provide that service.

    You did right think Eric.
    I am pressed hard to shoot and weddings and thinking about the best camera (I also have RZ67 proII). I think I would never have a good sleep with digital camera on a such important event.

    I understand what Daniel meant, but frankly I would sleep better with a woman than with a d____l camera.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
