dad went to tokyo recently and i tried to get him to cop a mamiya while he was there. got back, no dice. went back into his room and found this old medium format camera. works well enough, though the cloth shutter sticks (it probably hasn't had film in in in like 50 years). i'm taking it to a repair place sometime later this week to get it all checked/fixed up, and got some 120 porta from a local film lab and will try running that through it sometime in the coming week. will post results here later. also, it's been a while, hello everyone.

Gotta question film bruhs, I use my dslr for portrait and other rando photography but was thinking about getting a film rig for some nature photography. Anyone got a decent suggestion on something good but also relatively cheap (under $500). Was looking at mamiya 7 because I want 60-80mm goodness but idk. Anyone else do alot of nature shots with film that has input?


you want to know what nobody tells you?
all pro landscape photographers shoot with large format film cameras. like the old school bellows cameras. the negative is twice as big as any dslr, so the quality is impeccable.

Cheapest. A Speed or Crown Graphic press camera (at the expense of movements, not a good choice if you are interested in perspective control or depth of field control. A basic monorail like Calumet CC-400, Omega, Graphic View II (at the expense of portability, at about 8 lbs., they are a little heavy and bulky for hiking), Bender (if you like woodworking). A Burke and James (good movements, more portable than a monorail, might be a bit ratty). $250.

Cheap. A new Calumet Cadet (a monorail camera). $400. Toyo 45cx. $450. A used lightweight wood-field (such as the Tachihara). $400-$500. A Technika III (metal, flatbed, adequate movements). $600.

Still reasonable. A new lightweight wood-field (around $700), a used Wista, a used Zone VI. The new Arca-Swiss discovery (maybe too recent to find used) and the Sinar A1 (monorail cameras).

Was it just a local thrift shop or a goodwill? I remember I saw this black and red camera at goodwill a few months back and I didnt buy it because I thought it wasn't worth anything lol but I cant remember if it was a minolta or yashica -___-

I'm going on a 17 day trip to Africa in November, and since Kodak film is around 50% off (at least in my area it is) as a result of Kodak selling their film department, I should just stock up on film now. Would you recommend 100, 200, or 400 ISO film? I'm thinking 400 because I like a little bit of noise. November is the middle of summer in Africa and it will be sunny (and hot, lol) as shit, so I'm not going any higher than 400 ISO.

Thanks in advance

You'll be cool with any of the speeds, but 400 is better for walk around stuff. Just grab some 200 for portraiture and landscapes. Where are you going in Africa? For what? I wish I would've had film the last time I was there.

Going to South Africa. Not really sure which park we're going to (not Kruger), it's a park that my dad's friend owns. My parents used to live in Jo-Burg and my dad has been wanting to take me for a while. I'm excited it should be cool.

i am having too much luck lately! picked up this olympus xa2 from a thrift store for $1 today. got some batteries in it and a roll of film and it appears to be working fine. the old dude at the store told me that he was a camera collector his whole life and theyre having a garage sale at the end of this month where he'll have most of his collection for sale. stoked for that.

If you find any more awesome cameras, would you be willing to sell me one on the low?
I need a nice point and shoot.

What's the easiest SLR to operate? I had trouble with an AE-1 (lol), but I want an SLR. If an AE-1 is the most simple SLR, I should just stick to P&S haha.

^ you could get a newer slr with autofocus and auto exposure. like a rebel or something. itd be as simple as an automatic p&s but youd have more creative control if you decided you wanted it. search craigslist for canon 35mm rebel and i bet youll find a couple around $50.
