I was out with my R'cord yesterday and -as always-was thrilled to have such a well engineered precision medium format image-making device that's weighs in at less than a pound. Did I mention that the weight includes a Schneider lens and a magnifier for the ground glass ?
You'll also notice that people respond very differently to TLRs -great for candids and portraits. Try some PAN F and shoot it wide open!
And then theres the "WOW" factor from interesting and sometimes beautiful strangers...
Do I sound biased?
