Mamiya RB67 Pro S

11

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!!!

    Great camera, there is an old photo shop nearby that has one Mamiya just like that but the owner wants too much money for it :(
    Awesome review, congrats.

    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).

    Definitely great. I got mine from eBay in a very good condition for 300€ and was my entry to medium format photography. It's a hell of a solid block of metal and delivers crisp, extremely sharp pictures with no distortion and no fall-off in the corners. And it's a pain to use. So what is the conclusion: it's the exact opposite from my beloved Holga!
    Don't get me wrong, I love my Mamiya, but it's nothing against the Plastic Fantastic!!!

    Live long and prosper...

    Transient Living: The Craft and the Craftsmen of Denver, Colorado

    The people of a city, to me, speak volumes about its culture and sense of community. And that is why I sought out the people who make Denver that much more interesting after the initial period of settling down. My search lead to a few establishments that have contributed to making Denver what it is today. In the second story on Transient Living, I present to you two of such establishments: The Craftsman & Apprentice, and A Small Print Shop.

    The LomoChrome Purple and How Its Colors Convinced Me in the End

    I wasn't very impressed when the LomoChrome Purple was first released. At least not so much that I wanted to get my hands on it at once. Of course I liked some pictures but eventually, I wanted to test it and what can I say? It was love at first sight!
