Mamiya 6

Got myself an excellent condition Mamiya 6 medium format rangefinder camera at a bargain! Totally loving it for its image quality and handling! So far, I think it has the sharpest lens in my entire collection (OK, I know my collection is not a lot...).

One thing I have to get used to is the 6x6 format. I have been shooting 35mm film and I am used to the 1/3 rule. I'm not saying this can't be applied to a 6x6, but some times it just doesn't work. I'm loving this camera! The film advance lever is very smooth and the shutter is very very very silent thanks to its leaf shutter. Plus, it has a Aperture Priority mode, which suits me totally! I mean, I can do manual but if given the choice to use Aperture mode, why not?

Below are some of the shots taken with slides (Kodak Ektachrome 100S and Fuji Provia 400X).

  1. Mamiya 6 is great! I have a Fujifilm GF670 Professional, which is a rangefinder with Aperture Priority. But it is only a manual focus rangefinder camera.
