Typical of you to find a beautiful and unique angle on this well frequented spot, Paul.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Makes my shots from a couple of weeks back look absolute garbage! Thanks for that!

Excellent, it works very well with the square crop which almost seems to be your hallmark. I think you need a 645D...
I do find that grain never looks quite the same digitally as it does on film, but I sometimes wonder if that'd because I have come to view noise as a nuisance to be got rid of in PP or whether Adobe and others just haven't got it right on that one thing yet.

Thanks for looking and commenting, guys.

Alien', I really do want to lay my hands on a digital medium format camera of some kind, whether it be the new 645D or a Rollei with a digital back, but these things cost far too much.
If I go the film route, then it would be the Mamiya 7II rangefinder or something similar. There is a Mamiya rangefinder that shoots square frames but I've forgot the marque of it. And then of course it comes down to having the ability to scan stuff to a decent quality into a digital file. More money...

I have always loved grain in the film days, and i'm not adverse to noise, but not the chroma kind. I like the noise/ grain that my K20D produces at ISO 800, it is lovely and film-like in my view, 'fine' too.

Perhaps you mean the Mamiya 6?

There's a review here.

Ever considered a Rollei? I have a Rolleiflex T with the 3.5 Tessar. Gives me the option to shoot 645 as well as 66 and not too bulky.

Like the image btw; the crescent moon and Whitby Abbey is a nice touch.

Oh yeah thanks, of course it's the Mamiya 6.
I would love to try out the Rolleiflex T. I'll definately search around online for it's price and info'. I enjoyed reading about it in your link too, cheers.

What set-up do you have for scanning your negs or slides? Personally for me, getting back into film means a good to great quality option for scanning, not to mention investing in a hard drive or two for what's to come...

Hi Pauly,

I'm afraid I can't help you on the scanner setup as I get a commercial photographer to scan my films at high resolution using his setup, for a nominal fee.

I use my Rolleiflex for medium format, a Nikon F Photomic FTN outfit with vintage Nikkor lenses for critical 35mm.

If I want to go really mobile then I use my Minox B.

Someone who uses a similar setup is Jim Stipovich and you can judge the quality of his results here.

Hope this helps.
