120 Medium Format Film
My Film Journey
My learning continues with “getting it right in-camera” as never before has this phrase meant so much. I’ve made silly errors like rolling the take-up spool the wrong way thus allowing light leaks to occur, soft-focusing (my eyes need a +2 diopter added to the rangefinder) and composing (need to back-up to get what I seek in the frame).
As for focusing, I’ve changed to the use of a monopod when doing “street photography” yet know the tripod is the ultimate choice. When forced to use the GF670 hand-held like for the temple shots below as no …pods allowed, I’ve added a Thumbs Up grip similar to the one use for my X-Pro2.
If you made this far down the page, I have a new camera coming, i.e. a 6×17 pano “pinhole” camera. I look forward to trying the basic Camera Obscura.
