    Contemplating big feat with Mamiya RZ67

    I'm thinking about taking it to an outdoor concert in the park! Should I carry extra fuel and water to survive the feat? They don't allow pack mules in the park but I could strap it to my dog and have her haul it.

    Kids nowadays .

    I had a family friend who had a photo studio until he sold it and retired in the late 1970s. Previous to then he had switched over to smaller, lighter and more portable cameras for his wedding and environmental portrait work - RB67s, and Koni-Omegas!

    Question, will that Prism helping for focus? Or does it help for exposure only? What is this Prism good for?

    The prism gives you eye-level viewing, and (more importantly for some) doesn't reverse things right to left, which helps a lot if you need to track movement.
    Some have meters. Also, you get a better view of the focus screen, since there isn't extra light spilling in.
    Otherwise, they just add weight.

    Use a monopod. If they're not allowed, then use an L bracket. It's doable.

    Ah ok, i think i may get one.
    So what do you do to focus with RZ and have sharper or in focus shots if using wide open or close to wider aperture [2.8-5.6]?
