I used this camera in New Zealand for special effects out in the field and in the studio. Now only for black and white work as its too hard to get large format colour film processed in Perth, Western Australia.

These are some photos taken with this camera.

iso1600, f5.6, 1/125 +/-1 stop
daylight from the side and fill flash at 1/2
3 shots HDR processed in Photomatix pro4.
converted to b&w then changed hue slightly sepia in ACDsee9
