    Took Mamiya RZ67 to 4th of July parade!

    What was I thinking? I almost got hit by a float as I tried to run across the street to put the sun behind me. My top sprinting speed was much slower, carrying that beast!

    It was fun trying to shoot with both 35mm and RZ67. Especially fun trying to change the film magazine before the next subject rolled up. Several people ask me what the heck it was that I was carrying. One guy asked if it also shoots video. :rolleyes:

    But did the system allow you to make quality images?
    When I grow up, I want to be a photographer.

    Stick something bigger than a 250mm on it, and people will start asking if it shoots rockets...LOL

    * When I started using 8x10, it amazed me how many shots were close to the car. *

    Didn't anyone ask you if that was a Hasselblad?

    What lens did you use? I did that about ten years ago (when I could still walk) and used the wlf and the 65mm. Konica 160 color film in 220, so I wouldn't have to reload film backs. It was fun, but I have never done it again.

    I used a 90mm and the WLF. One back because the only other one that I have is the 220 and I had everything plus the light meter, 35mm body (with a 50 mm lens) all stuffed in a camera bag that wasn't designed for MF. It was a good experience for me to have to reload the back in a hurry.
