Mamiya RB67 6 x 7

By Mark Beresford | Comments 6

These are my first photos with my new (old) Mamiya rb67 pro-SD. I just wanted to test that the camera is working and wasn’t waiting for the best conditions. Kodak Portra 160.

180mm lens, ISO 160, f/5.6, 1/60s

This is an accidental double exposure, which happened because I’m still learning how to use the camera.

This is what happens when you don’t nail the focus because puppies don’t sit still.

180mm lens, ISO 160, f/5.5, 1/8s

This is what happens when you have a low shutter speed and puppies don’t sit still.

I think this camera and film have real promise. The photos have an authentic mood about them with good color, good contrast, and a buttery smooth background.
