I have shot medium format for 21 years. Dabbled in digital and digital has a long way to go. Mamiya RB67 Pro SD. Mamiya m645 w/ metered prism. Luna Pro System S meter.

I am a landscape and specialized contract photographer. Questions? Please ask.

I have been shooting a Pentax 67 on and off for five years now. I still shoot five to seven rolls a week for landscapes.

Phyllysva...I still shoot med form after 21 years of doing so. I still have an old Mamiya m645, seldom used, and a Mamiya RB67 Pro SD. I shoot high contrast landscapes of vineyards with a lot of sunlight. Most digitals will not handle this type of photography as it can easily burn out the sensor.

"Anymore"...? Just sold off my Fuji S5/lenses. Great camera, but I shoot black and white exclusively now, and for that, nothing beats film.
Now shoot 6x9-8x10 formats. Walking around camera: Fuji GW690. When I feel fiesty: Graflex 5x7 slr. When I have the time, resources, and particularly interesting subject matter: 8x10 Seneca.

I have toyed with getting a MF system. Not having a darkroom and NOT wanting to go back in to a darkroom make film based systems impractical for me. Sure one could scan negatives and that may be the way to go eventually.

Thank you.
You should see the 5x7 contact print though...puts web image/digital print to shame.
