    Got a Mamiya 6

    About a month ago, I bought a Mamiya 6, something I have wanted since I was in high school, when they came out back in the 90s! I absolutely LOVE this camera! I have the 75mm lens now, hoping to get the others as soon as I can afford them. I've already shot 30 rolls of film through it!

    Nice tonality which is what I'd expect from you.
    I especially like the 2nd shot of the clapboard farmhouse. 6x6 slightly wide isn't always easy compositionally.
    You did nicely here.

    The shot of the sign is a bit disturbing. Any backstory you know of? (I'm hoping all it is, is some bored kids that reshuffled the lettering one night )

    Never used one but only hear good things about it. Like your pics too, especially 4 and 5. At least the kids that did that can spell!

    It is across the street from a college, so I'm guessing some of the students got drunk over the weekend and messed with the sign, but I don't know for sure.

    Thanks, everyone, for all the comments. I love this camera! Wish I'd gotten one years ago.

    Lonely town. Where are all the folk who live there?
    Looks like the Mamiya 6 fits your vision very well. Great photos. Well done.

    This has been my favorite camera for years now. After buying the 50mm lens I stopped using the 75 and 150. It's remarkably sharp, and I like wide and sharp

    50mm

    I used the 6 on a hiking trip in England last summer. I found that the 50mm was how I saw the world - only took it off once or twice. On days that promised to be tough, I left the other lenses in the room and only took the 50 with me - didn't miss the weight or the other perspectives.
