Mamiya RB67 Pro S


It is my latest discovery to carry such a special canon on my hand.

I am considering myself still a new lomographer so far, still a junior in the lomo world. However, I truly understand why am I here, and I was happy to be here. One main reason is because I get to share my idea and all my cameras with everybody here.
So this time, without babbling so much about that, I would like to share this big gun to you all.

It was introduced since 1940, by Seichi Mamiya(I guess his name explain everything), to all classic camera enthusiasts out there!!! Presenting my latest collection, the legendary RB mechanical 6×7cm Medium Format Camera, The Mamiya RB Professional S!!! The 6×7cm format which means about 5 times larger than ordinary 35mm format. Comes with Built-in bellows that allows continuous focusing from infinity to close range with all focal length lenses. It is a high level advance camera, so it also is has the Multi-format Interchangeable Film Magazine Capability and the specialty of Interchangeable Focusing Screens. Sounds amazing isn’t it?

But whatever it is…
Any camera that drops in a lomographer’s hand, it’s all going to be just “whatever”,
Nothing much to think about, Just shoot~!!!
Enjoy the pictures guys, and remember to give some comment of what you guys think about this huge and heavy metal box.

To me, carrying it around is cool. Looking into its viewfinder in like watching a TV screen(it’s bigger that your iPod screen, Haha!). One thing irresistible is, the sound of its shutter, “Chhh-CLuckk-kkkkk!!!” WOW!!!

    It's a great camera. I have been using mine for over a year now and it's incredibly sharp, reliable and amazing. It's a hell of a best to carry around, but that's the fun of it. I also got it on ebay for a good price if some places are still asking too much for them (zulupt).

    Vintage Gallery: Headpieces from Around the World

    A hat is in the position to be noticed before any other item of clothing. Its shape and texture can immediately call to mind cultural associations. A cloche is to 1920s fashion as a picture hat is to the 1900s. The wide-brimmed or fur-lined variety, on the other hand, is more functional for tribes.
