Photographer Otakar Hevler has posted a gorgeous image taken near Anthy-sur-Léman, France. Although he claims to have shot this exact place several times previously, this is the image he wants to share with the world on his blog.
This gorgeous landscape, shot with a Mamiya RB 67 Pro and a Mamiya-Sekor C 50mm f/4.5, is reminiscent of the images Apple bundles with Mac OS X. Captured on Kodak T-MAX, ISO 100, it’s simply a stunning image, and reminds us of the beauty of film technology the world has grown used to for over 150 years.
Alex Waterhouse-Hayward has pulled some great Polaroids and prints out of his archive, scanned them, and posted them with commentary. This blog entry is filled with shots from a 1992 photo shoot he did with Lisa Montonen holding various flora.
Karen Nakamura has put together a review of the Mamiya RB67 Pro. It goes into some fine detail on the history of model, which was first introduced in 1970, with substantial improvements over the past 30 years.
Nakamura explains modifications she’s done to her RB Pro, including mounting an RZ waist level finder on it, “which confuses everybody,” she writes. She warns you won’t be able to use your RB hood after this conversion without replacing the screws a second time. She also reports this modification is physical, and there are no working electronics between her RB body and the RZ hood.
The review also contains interesting sections on lenses and an auxiliary handle.
