I like taking my time to compose my shots, but pointing my 35mm SLR at people on the street for anything longer than a few seconds just doesn't work too well. With my TLR I can stare for as long as I want into the finder and nobody seems to even notice once they get over the crazy camera.
    Doc, this is nice to hear. I'm taking my new C33 out for the first time today, for some hand-held shooting at an orchid show, and maybe out on the street after that. This heavy beast is going to take some getting used to but the test roll done on the tripod was beautiful. I often feel the same way as you with a 35mm and find street photography very difficult. I'm hoping the telephoto lenses will make me oven more invisible.

    I use a couple of C220's and the longest lens I have for these cameras is the 180. I don't use the 180 that much. I kind of gets in the way. The way I figure it, if you need the long lens, you're not close enough. Just do your thing, and people will ignore you, which is what you want if you want to be invisible.

    fschifano - I know I'm not close enough. I don't want to be close enough - that's why I do very little street photography and don't pretend to be any good at it.

    Actually, it's an Ikoflex. The Ikoflex series is somewhat unusual in that nearly every model looked different from the previous model.

    The only other camera series that shared this bizarre design approach was the Rolleiflex SL 35 cameras.

    Likewise,



    although the Mamiya and Primo don't see as much use as the two Rolleiflexes. Two of the camera that goes everywhere with me are below:

    WLF is great when you get older too.

    I never thought I would like the waist level finder on a camera, but that changed as I got older. When you get bifocals, and the eyes don't focus on things as fast as they did when you were 20 years old, that big screen puts the fun back in photography. I still use a 35mm but my way of focusing that is to turn the lense one way till it is blurry, turn it back the other way till it is blurry, then put it in between and hope you are close. Another advantage I'm finding is that now stopping down the aperature to see depth of field really works with a wlf. With a 35mm the image is so small in the viewfinder that you can really see the difference anyway. Ric.
