    who handholds their RB67???

    I was just curious how many RB67 shooters handhold the camera?

    I know a guy who does a lot of street portraits with an RB67 hand held.

    Not anymore because I sold the beast, but I found it to be well-balanced and easy to use hand held.

    However, photographing people this way may be problematic because several seem to be intimidated by the size and appearance of the camera.

    I usually use a tripod, but have done handheld shots also. I don't think it is ideal for that, but I have done fine.

    I handhold the RZ67 ProII. A beast...

    RB6? Why not. I encourage a tripod though but you´ll manage without in some situations. Depends of course of the usage. Macro in dim light is out of the question where mirror release is required.

    I do it with an RZ, not an RB. 400 and 800 films are wonderful for this, but I have also done it with 100 film in bright light. I use '400 whenever possible, '250 sometimes, and '125 every now and then. I have not tried to use anything longer than the 110mm lens for this. Shots come put plenty sharp for me.

    I generally use my tripod but I was just curious if many folks use it handheld.

    I prefer to use a tripod, but I have no problem using my RB handheld

    I had an RB67 many years ago. I really liked it but I didn't like it enough to hold its hand. Handholding it... nahh.
