Im kinda getting to that point, what can I get out of the camera.

The camera my folks got me is a Century, with the 103mm Trioptar. It has a rollfilm "23" on it, so no ground glass. No rangefinder either, so its definitely 'entry level' Stil, its one of the most basic MF 'system' I can get and I am sure will be miles above my 35mm. I am expecting it in a few weeks, when they drive up to visit, also bringing me a little gift from a very nice person here.

Im excited about it and what I can do with it, Im sure its a project that will keep me busy until I can afford a 4x5 view camera.
