I had almost forgotten what it means to shoot with a fully automatic camera with adjustable light meter, auto-wind, full information in the viewfinder, and a ton of other settings! This camera is a pleasure to use, it is super-user-friendly, can do things automatically or hand over a lot of control to me. The only problem is that it quickly burns through 36 frames. It gives new life to my FD lenses.
My search for a 645 medium format camera ended with the Bronica ETRSi, mainly because of all the lovely photos taken with Zenzanon lenses that I saw on Instagram, but also because of its price. Now I am the happy owner of this camera and have already used it a lot. Time to start a field report!
Do you like the idea of a large-format view camera but don’t want to jump into developing and handling large-format negatives? This was my idea when I bought a Horseman VH a year ago. This is a medium-format technical or view camera that has a good range of movements and allows you to get very close to large-format experience but stay within your 120 workflow.
One of the first film cameras I bought after starting again with film photography, and one of the few I have kept. This is an ongoing review and is updated as I use the camera.
