Are there any medium or large format users here?

If so, maybe we could have a new section for this area of photography?

As a specialist in the area of LF, I would welcome interesting discussions in this side of the game.

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

I'm an occasional MF user albeit only with a TLR. Bronicas are dropping in price almost to reachable levels though!

Yes I do use MF (6x9, 6x7, 6x6, 645) and also have a Cambo Legend plus a homemade 5x4 wooden field camera that I got from ebay.(although I haven't used it yet)

From the above replies, it would appear that there is virtually no scope for LF on this forum.

Thanks to those that responded!

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

I do some stuff on MF sometimes, using my Mamiya RB67. I haven't used it in a while though as I'm not at uni so can't develop the films for free...

I also use LF too, although that's only at work with the digital scanning back.

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

Just restarting after a digital absence!

I currently use a Rollei E2 and a Hasselblad kit (150mm on it's way from Ffordes as we speak) and am thinking hard about doing 6x9 Velvia. I have to admit that I've never got on that well with 5x4. Back when I worked in a studio (a very long time ago) my boss thought I was joking when I asked if I could rig a harness from the lighting pipes so I could hang upside down to view the screen. When he found out I was serious, all he managed to say was "haysus kerist" (I think I caught that correctly but he was suffering some kind of choking fit at the time). As he had Polish antecedents, I assume this was an east European compliment to my powers of lateral thinking....

I use both a Fuji GW 690 111 and a GSW 690 111 and the results are superb. The cameras are just like big Leica's, extremely easy to carry about and use.

I also have "previously" used MF - minolta - but since been swept away by digital! Problem is, old school is great and basics won't change... kind of like riding a bike, but digital evolves so quickly these days you spend an equal amount of time keeping yourself educated about what you have, what it does & where its going to be in the next 6 months! Especially once you factor in the software like photoshop etc. I guess what Im saying, is that while I loved learning on MF, I'm not sure I'd ever have the time to go back!

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

In college, sometimes get to shoot with Mamiya RB and RZ's. Also had some (not much) practise with Bronica's.

All rather jolly.

Real photography with real cameras and real film is what we are talking about!

It would be a nice experience for everyone to have a go with a large format camera at least once. When you can see the image on a glass screen at 5x4 or 10x8 inches and use the camera movements to control that image you truly feel that you are in touch with what photography really has to offer.

Using a 35mm DSLR is a sterile experience compared to using a LF camera.

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

How much do decent or 'beginner' mfs go for? Might it be something I'd like to explore? How different is it from 35mm film shooting? Sorry for the hijack, but I'm sure les won't mind

Re: Are there any medium or large format users here?

I suppose something comparable to the quality of my ae1, that will give decent results, but isn't a major expensive investment as it probably won't be my main system. It's hard to explain when you don't know anything about something

Ah! Now I see where you're coming from! Think you have me do you? Then how does one differentiate between a MF digital SLR and a, dare I say, small format digital SLR if not by the traditional method of referring to the 'format' of the image size. Note my careful use of words here, I have NOT mentioned film! And yes, 35mm does refer to a full-frame DSLR rather than the diminutive size of the sensors in 'pro-sumer' (eek!) cameras (like my Fuji S2 of course). E.G. The Canon 5D (and other full-frame models) can rightly be called a 35mm DSLR.

I'm afraid we are back to terminology, I'm using it correctly and you don't know it!

Your turn!

Nor, apparently, do Google or Wikipedia, who do say "the largest sensors are referred to as "full-frame", and are the same size as 35 mm film"

Can't find any reference to a "35mm dslr" except by you in this thread, Les

And where does 'full frame' originate from? Yep, the size of an uncropped 35mm film image, 24x36 mm (or near enough).

I have just searched Google on '35mm dslr' and it returned lots of sites showing exactly that terminology! We could go on but, as the old song says "You say tomatoe and I say tomato, you say potatoe and I say potato...let's call the whole thing off".

Ah but you didn't follow the links ... which all describe either 35mm format or DSLR's
