Medium Format Kit

Many years ago, I shot with three Mamiya 6x6cm TLR cameras (C220, C22, and C3) and three lenses (55, 80, 180).

 

When they wore out, I replaced them with the following three medium format cameras:

 

Fuji 6x7cm rangefinder with 90mm f/3.5 normal lens (left)

 

Mamiya 6x7cm SLR with 150mm f/4 SF-C telephoto lens (center)

 

Fuji 6x9cm rangefinder with 65mm f/5.6 wide-angle lens (right)

 

I prefer the 6x7 Fuji with the 90mm f/3.5 normal lens when shooting general photography.

 

I prefer the 6x7 Mamiya with the 150mm f/4 telephoto lens when shooting individual portraits.

 

I prefer the 6x9 with the 65mm f/5.6 wide-angle lens when shooting landscapes, architecture, and group portraits.

 

Even though I love the larger image size produced by the three cameras I now use, I really miss the smaller size, lighter weight, and quiet operation of my 6x6 TLR cameras.
