Guess who got a new camera…

(This photo was taken somewhere in southern Illinois, with my Mamiya 7.)

I am happy to announce that my beloved Rollei now has a new sister. Her name is Mamiya 7. Well, she is not new. I am her third owner, according to her previous owner, who I found on craigslist, but she is new to me and I am excited. Mamiya 7 is a cute little thing that takes big beautiful 6×7 medium format (film) photos.

I am hoping to put her to use this summer on some of my upcoming projects, including the Town Hall cook book. I think the rectangular format will be better than square, so there isn’t as much senseless cropping involved. Unlike this beauty of an image which is cropped just right.
