So I have just ordered a Mamiya Sekor C 55mm F2.8 (about 34mm equivalent on full frame equivalent). This can only mean on thing... medium format Street Photography! If you follow me on here or on YouTube you know that I have recently acquired a Mamiya 645 1000S with a 35mm F3.5 lens (22mm FF eq).
Although I shoot wide angle lenses, the 35mm F3.5 is a tad too wide for general shooting, However, I would like to make a couple of really wide shots in London. As always, getting a new piece of gear is always exciting. Unfortunately, it was a little more than I really wanted to pay, and I have just seen the same lens on the Mr Cad (camera shop near Victoria) for less.
Nonetheless, it does not put a damper on the situation. I currently have a roll of Ektar 100 in there, and have been shooting it at asa400- so must remember to have it pushed during development.
I have already shot a test roll of XP2 120 in the 6451000S, and will be picking up the roll tomorrow. This roll was shot taking various landscapes on nearby downs. But, I am still looking forward to getting it back.
I would like to get a metered prism/ viewfinder for the 6451000S, as using a separate hand held meter does slow me down when shooting.
So far I am enjoying the Mamiya, and look forward to getting some of the results up on the site!
