Cult classics: the Plaubel Makina 670 and 67W medium format cameras. With a fixed Nikkor lens and folding bellows, these were the modern incarnation of the old 120 folding cameras from the early 20th century. Each has a very sharp Nikkor fixed lens, 80mm and 55mm respectively, and in the case of the 670, could take 120 or 220 film. Easy and precise to use, they produce excellent results, as well as being extremely compact when folded. Through the years, these have been the film cameras I shoot with most often. Known for having a troublesome connection to the meter, often broken from folding and unfolding the bellows, they are still working on both of these. Nevertheless, as a fall back, I carry this sweet gold plated 50th Anniversary Sekonic L-398 meter just in case. ;-)
