Spare Mamiya RB67 body arrived on friday the 22nd. It was $65 and it's in fabulous condition. I am totally thrilled with it. Also in the box was a spare back for the Mamiya in use and it was just in time. Again a used part looking unloved or as Michael Raso calls them Beaters... It worked a charm. Again thrilled.
Photography had been slow, I have been unmotivated and without Tim coming over with some old 1960 film, I probably would have achieved nothing at all.
as you can see some rather cool shots appeared. They all belong to Tim so I'll leave him to upload them.
I did take the mamiya to Kiama where it was used in Gale force winds and sea salt. :-( talk about needing a clean. Something I need to get on too tomorrow.
Did a stock take of my film supply.. And need to use more 135 film.. Or trade it for 120. Any takers??
Also in the mail was a Polaroid 95a in mint condition it's a shame that, to me, it has to undergo surgery but as roll film no longer exists ( though I do have two rolls) I can convert it to 120 film. The other beastie that arrived is HUGE..
I am tempted to convert the Polaroid 800 to 70mm film but this is a dying format. I have managed a 30ft roll for my two 116 cameras and I will use some in the Box brownie 3 that took 124 film ( even bigger) but to perform surgery for an almost dead format would be cruel, so another for the 120 knife.
