Having the versatility of being able to change photo formats on beautiful medium format is almost unheard of until the arrival of the Belair X 6-12. Capture gorgeous and breathtaking panoramas with its 6x12 and 6x9 format, while also being able to shoot riveting portraits full of details with its 6x6 format. In this special edition of Reviews on Rewind, we focus our lenses on the Belair. Read on!
I do recommend the camera, perhaps it is not ideal for the typical “shoot from the hip” Lomographer – I think you’ll have too many bad results then, and as mentioned the 6×12 format is quite expensive in use – which also pushes more towards a thoughtful kind of photography.
I shot in the last trip I made in Milan and I was impressed by the good results obtained… If you like panoramic photos, this machine is perfect for you.
Therefore, without any hesitancy I can justifiably claim that the Belair X 6-12 City Slicker is a pro-quality medium format camera that can deliver impressive results. Couple this remarkable camera with the two lenses that are included in the package (along with the future option of adding a high-quality 114mm interchangeable lens) and you have a terrific “can’t miss” scenic or portrait camera that will leave Instagram users gasping for air.
Overall Belair offers possibilities that I have not yet exploited all but it has all the promise made approaching the LC-A +. Like the LC-A, Belair X6-12 is ideal for difficult lighting conditions. Indeed, over 400 ISO, it seems not necessary to use a flash.
Belair is really easy and interesting to use! I will definitely bring it with me more often. I am really looking forward to the possibility of having more exchangeable lenses for Belair!
