As popular as the RB is here on APUG I would have thought this group would be more active and more photos posted???
I will post a couple of shots and hopefully someof you will post something too.
Yeah, these social forums seem to be a little less than social.
Thanks for posting some photos, I was beginning to think that I was weird.

Not that one should preclude the other, of course.
OK, so I'm a little socially challenged.
I got caught up in preparing for and attending a workshop and starting carbon transfer and now I'm preparing for a carbon transfer and platinum workshop so I haven't had much time to check in here. I still have my camera system and intend to use it in the future. It travels better than a large format camera. I'm saving for a scanner and thinking about scanning 120 and even making d****al negatives for alt processes. The RB67 will suit me nicely when that happens. I really like shooting roll film, especially after developing over a hundred sheets of film from the workshop with my field camera.
Just got my RB67 Pro-SD setup, but yeah it does seem kind of dead here. I've been frequenting the Flickr group as of late.
I plan to use my RB more this year, getting older and want the freedom to move. I have the ProS and really like it, I've not seen a camera with this much flexibility in a medium format of this type. I was looking at the Mamiya 7II but the price, and the close focusing, I'll stick with it the RB for now. I've taken a Mamiya 645 to Europe with lenses and inserts without a problem with weight and even though the RB is heavier it's the camera I'll take on my next trip. I took the 645 to Hawaii and all the time wished I had the RB, live and learn.
I am planning on using my RB67 a bit more this year also, I just got a 50mm lens and tested it with slide film today during my lunch break. I got this camera two years ago and almost forgot how nice it is to carry around. I will be posting my test photos from today in a few days. Cheers!
I took my RB ProS to Arches along with a view camera, 5x7, a couple of years ago, the RB was such a release, horizontal to vertical just a twist. One photograph of "Balanced Rock" taken late on a hot day is very nice. Once tamed Rollei Pan 25 yields spectacular results. Rodinal 1:50, Rodinal keeps a long time and is always ready to go. Very easy kit with the RB, fine film and an easy developer.
