    I still have to get out to shoot a roll, weather has been horrible and I don't like the idea of immediately soaking the camera. I will post results though in the future

    But boring weather, boring light and some rain isn't, plus it doesn't make the photographer happy either

    Some day you will come to find just how cool 'boring' can be in a photograph. I use a large sealing zip-loc plastic bag to rainproof my Hasselblad. I cut a hole for the lens, and tape with gaffer's tape to the lens shade. I cut a hole on the bottom so I can reach my hands up from underneath to focus and wind the film. The cable release sticks out as it doesn't mind getting wet. Finally I use the zip-loc itself to open and close to look into the viewfinder.
    This works really well, and long exposures in the rain can lend a really ethereal look to your photographs. Your mileage may vary, but at some point it's worth trying to shoot in the rain. You might like it.

    I shot some close-ups of my fountain pens today, love the close up focus of the bellows and the 50mm lens. I still have to finish the roll. I find it so relaxing taking time to check all the settings, making really sure that everything is correct

    Hey Max -welcome to RB67 Club!!!!!! Congrats on your buy. I think you're spot on with the 'relaxing taking time to check all the settings, ...'. It really is therapeutic!
