Untitled June 03, 2007 « My folio is a mess Journal Comments jemimalovesbigted over 9 years ago I have a gorgeous old Cannon Super 8 Camera…. I know its a different format, but one I love all the same. To shoot anything on it costs a fortune and I need a projector to watch it (which I don’t have) anyway…. I have no intention of getting rid of it however. rick strodder over 9 years ago THaNks Jem… You in Melbourne?? I was in the chapel street bazzar this weekend and they had o;d projectors in there… Could you pick one up on ebay cheep? Sidqie Djunaedi over 9 years ago Couple of months back, I just picked up an old RB67 … I know, its different Lomo and Holga. But still … old and dusty … but I just love when I hear shutter goes off … definitely different feel … :P Won it on an online auction site by SA govt … for $350, with 2 lenses, 2 backs, and many other goodies come with it :D … it is quite a bargain. It is definitely a keeper for me tho … But yess .. i want a TLR too … hmmmm … :P James Pierce over 9 years ago The blad sound is as good as it gets for me ! I don’t have one right now, but I’m sure it’s not long … I can borrow a few anyway if I need a fix. That and the sound of mechanical shutters in my large format lenses… Whirrrrrrr Click – and like magic another image is made… it doesn’t seem like enough for all the fuss of setting up the camaera, loading the back and making a shot. Dave Cheney over 9 years ago Grab yourself a seat and ebay for Yashicamat 124G. One of the best TLRs, that didn’t come with a Rollei nameplate (or price). The meters all take mercury batteries so don’t bother trying to find one with a working meter, its not worth it. If you can get one with a set of front hoods then its well worth it, the front elements are rarely coated enough to prevent serious flair. Popular Mr over 9 years ago RBs are nice for studio setups but too BIG and heavy to handhold I like how you can rotate the back for vertical or horizontal shots, but also causes some backs to leak. I started with a holga, Yashica C, then a bronica ETRSi, finally mamiya 7 (finally no clunk n slap)!! I still have all of them….Well I still own them but they are all out on loan Bring on 5×4... but I cant make myself pay too much for something that is essentially a big bellow :S. Lenses are cheap enough though. James Pierce over 9 years ago The largeformat lenses SEEEM cheap, until you want a wide, or a nice telephoto … like all camera lens systems – the normals are cheap ! Mind you, all that film based secondhand stuff has got very affordable. I’ve seen full RB kits in a local camera joint for $399AUD – a student special… amazing really. rick strodder over 9 years ago You all speak the truth, the blads, bronies and yashi’s are wonderful things. I was wondering about older less refined stuff. Items made for the the general public as “snappers” a couple of descades ago… anyone?
