The search for a 645 camera ended with the Bronica ETRSi, mainly because of its price but also because I saw a lot of nice photos taken with Zenzanon lenses. Now I am the happy owner of this camera and have already used it a lot. Time to start a review!
This is work in progress.
Zenza Bronica ETRSi is an electronic medium format camera from (probably?) the end of 80s and beginning of 90s. It is made in Japan and part of the ETR series of 645 cameras from Bronica. They are plentiful and have a lot of lenses and accessories available. Compared to other medium format cameras these are quite reasonable cameras. I have paid less than 100 Euro for each of the lenses I own, and maybe 150 Euro for the camera with a film back. A 645 Fuji point-and-shoot easily costs 6-700 Euros these days, and has only one lens! So the Bronica is a bargain if you consider that it is a system consisting of some really excellent glass!
There are a lot of reviews of this camera on the internet so I will not do a full review but will mainly focus on my own experience of using this camera in various situations.
More to come.
Here are some example photos taken with this camera:
