Immediatly after returning from my trip to Paris/ London I started thinking about shooting other formats than solely 645. I have grown pretty accustomed to the 6 by 4,5cmformat (which I really love by the way), but I thought that it would be a great challenge to explore the larger 6 by 7cm format. So I started digging into the Mamiya 67 camera’s. Soon I discovered that I preferred the electronic version (RZ67) over the mechanic version (RB67).
A few weeks ago I found and bought a great set, which is in excellent condition. Apart from the RZ67 body it contained a 120 film back, a waist level finder, ae prism finder, electric winder, the sekor Z 50mm f/4.5 and the sekor Z 180mm f/4.5. So, the set is pretty much complete! The only thing that I’d like to have now is a 110mm f/2.8 lens.
Now I have learn how to use and handle this beast. Unfortunately I haven’t had much time to use it and the first roll was not entirely flawless… The camera is bulky and heavy, making it challenging to use without a tripod. But all in all I’m pretty stoked with the camera! I can’t wait to unleash this beast to its full potential!
