Medium Format Camera Help Needed - Photography

You should be able to pick up a used Mamiya C330 TLR for a couple of hundred dollars. Lenses wouldn't set you back more than $150 apiece and those old Mamiya optics were pretty good as I remember, the 180mm telephoto especially. -- Rob Walls [url]http://home.iprimus.com.au/rwalls[/url] [url]http://www.profotos.com/pros/profiles/index.cfm?member=82[/url] Ozimages portfolio: [url]http://www.ozimages.com.au/portfolio.asp?MemberID=47[/url] "Norman Worth" <nworthearthlink.net> wrote in message news:ZoTJa.62544$Io.5881429newsread2.prod.itd.ear thlink.net... > Used TLRs are available at good prices.

    For about $30 US including shipping (Try E-bay) You can buy 6X6 TLR Lubitel
    .. Couple of years ago I saw a new one in Newark DE in one of their Photo
    stores. It was about $25.

    There are many for sale on eBay. You vanna search for:

    Flexaret, Hartblei, Pentax, Mamiya, Hasselblad, or many othet twinlexes. The
    cheaper Russian makes like Diana, Lubitel, Kiev will leak lite a lot!

    TheCzech Flexaret is always a good buy! Profesional, simple and very good
    Prontor lenses! ... and only about $40.00 bucks.

    Why not forget about them and go digital? You are better off. You can get
    some awsome cameras that will almost beat medium formats! It is cheaper to
    use, cheaper for correcting and good sence.
