I recently bought a Mamiya RB67 with a Mamiya Sekor C 50mm f4.5 and a 90mm f3.8. After a month away for a CLA I got it back, where a few expired rolls were waiting for it. I was eager to shoot a lot, since I’m used to shooting a lot of 35mm and half […]
I recently bought a Mamiya RB67 with a Mamiya Sekor C 50mm f/4.5 and a 90mm f/3.8. After a month’s CLA, I got it back and as luck would have it, a few expired rolls were waiting for it. I was eager to shoot a lot of rolls with the camera, since I’m used to […]
In the summer of 2019, I sold my trusty Olympus XA in order to buy my then-dream camera: the Mamiya RB67. Although these cameras are vastly different, the XA being ideal for travel and street photography while the RB is more for studio shoots and still-life, I was convinced that when the time came I […]
I have to start this article with a confession… I had never planned for film photography to be a part of my life. I was never interested in film and wanted a digital camera so I could take as many shots as I wanted, while also being able to instantly judge what I was doing. […]
I bought a Mamiya RB67 Pro SD and 180mm f4.5 C lens in fall 2021 and did)n’t want to stray too far from home for the first roll through the camera. We recently moved to the Hudson Valley of New York and live across the street from Vassar College, which is more and more becoming […]
Moving to Toronto in 2020 may have been the riskiest, rewarding and hectic phase of my life to date. With COVID-19 at its peak then, the city didn’t feel like itself. But through that slow pace, I was able to get a feel and footing on the city. With so many lives passing by you […]
Finnish sauna tradition is strong and living heritage. It was in fact added to Unesco’s list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity a few months ago. Smoke sauna is the most traditional form of sauna. Though it is considered by many to be the finest kind it is clear why they are somewhat rare […]
I get easily excited about the little things. Whether it’s a new film stock, a film stock revived from the dead (come on Agfa Vista 400!), a new camera, a newly discovered old camera, or literally anything with the word Mamiya in it, my creativity starts rolling and I get my butt off the couch […]
I’ve spent over a decade of my life living and breathing photography. Like many, I started with digital but quickly realized that I wanted a more physical process. I was, and still am, spending entirely too much time behind a computer. I’ve shot multiple formats, from 35mm to medium and even large format. And then, […]
My Mamiya RB67 and I go back a long way, beside a dumpster at a Tim Horton’s (a donut and coffee shop for those of you not from Canada) where I bought her off of a guy who was selling cameras he picked up from studios that had gone bankrupt. She was heavily used and […]
A return to film. Again… For the fourth time. Yep, FOUR TIMES. I learned on film, eventually abandoned for digital due to work, got bored of digital and went back to film, got a digital Hasselblad, got obsessed with pixel-peeping and left film. Sold the ‘Blad, picked up a shitty Kiev 88 for $60 with […]
I originally set out to shoot this roll to try and nail down a few teething problems I had with starting home B&W development again. The first two rolls I had developed had small black specs all over the negative and concentrated particularly along the sides. Finding myself with a day off and no plans […]
I first came across today’s interviewee back in December 2019 after she posted a video messing around with Kodak Gold in Barcelona. Thanks to that quick DM and ensuing chat, I’ve finally been able to get her to grace these pages as interviewee #214. Ladies and gents, this is Ejatu Shaw. Hi Ejatu, what’s this […]
Have you ever heard off an off-the-grid professional film photographer? You have now. Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Ryan HK. Over to you, Ryan. Hi Ryan, what’s this picture, then? This is a mistake. RHK: In Bob Ross’ words “A happy little accident.” I was in this crazy little ghost town in rural Alberta… I brought […]
I discovered my love of film photography by accident. Being a collector, I have always frequented thrift stores for anything I could find of interest.
For about a year and a half, every time I opened my fridge I saw my last remaining 10 exposure pack of Fuji FP 100C instant film, and every time I opened said fridge I was reluctant to take it
What you see below is my Mamiya Sekor RB67 Pro S, the camera I’m reviewing today.
I’m back with the second in this series of end-of-year-lazy-posts.
I almost exclusively shoot on black and white film for the simple reason that I can develop and print it myself in the darkroom.
