Few months ago I bought myself a Medium format camera, a Pentax 67 with a 90mm lens (46MM for 35mm equivalent). It is a beast, a monster with more than 2kg of weight.
Medium Format camera
I used to have as medium format a Rolleiflex so 6×6, square picture format, it is beautiful, I love it but it is a bit limited with this square format. So as my best friend bought herself earlier another 6×7 beast, I also decided to do the same and I really don’t regret the investment ; yes it is an investment as analog camera tends to see their prices rising due to a kind of revival of film. So it is reassuring in term of finance.
The feeling is indeed very special with this camera. The “taste” of the pictures is very unique to the medium format, not necessarily due to the pentax 67, I might agree. But in any case the reward in term of emotions is very real and that is what count the most.
