    Professional Bronica Photographers

    Were/are there any well regarded professionals that used any Bronica's? Or were they more designed as a price point mass market box camera?

    I bought mine as an alternative to buying Hassy equipment because it was far too expensive for me. I don't know anyone else that shoots Bronica. I'm a college student and there are other people that shoot film in the program I'm in, but none of them shoot medium format. The teacher for my current class, Marilyn Cook, has been shooting for years and used a Bronica setup apparently. She also apparently kept her system and uses one of her lenses on her Canon DSLR with an adapter.

    Well, there's me.

    Other than that, no. But what difference does it make if I shoot Bronica and Master Photographer X shoots Haaselblad? The brain makes the photograph not the camera.

    In most cases we know that certain professional photographers shoot with Hasselblad/Mamiya/Contax because Hasselblad/Mamiya/Contax advertised that fact.

    Bronica used to advertise, but not as much.

    And having attended exactly one wedding in my life, I believe they should be afforded the highest respect. I offered to wrangle semi-drunk (and very drunk) people at the reception to help him, and he was most grateful. I could not be paid enough to deal with what they deal with.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I used Bronica GS1 gear to shoot bicycle racing and triathlon for a couple of different magazines... Not that i consider myself well regarded, except for by my mom.

    Legendary cycling photographer Graham Watson used to use Bronica 645 when shooting events.

    I chose the gs1 system because of leaf shutter lenses throughout the system. They weren't the toughest cameras ever built, but were great for shooting flash fill from the back of a motorcycle.
