Interesting. I started watching this video a while back, but never made it this far.

One of the things that draws me to shooting LF street photography is its conspicuousness. One of the key reasons the Leica is such a wonderful tool is that you can get in close very easily. On the contrary, the LF camera becomes a unique tool precisely because of its inability to get in close. It announces its presence, and people adjust to its presence; there's absolutely nothing covert about the process.

That's a unique place to occupy as a street photography, and I'm very anxious to go there.

EDIT: JM directly addresses this. Brilliant!

Davidson would set up his camera and remember this was a HORRIBLE neighborhood. People got t know him and they called him "picture man". He worked slow and deliberate. He made all kinds of friends and I think he is still friends with some of those that are still alive today. He would give then prints. Very cool....

I use my Mamiya 7 for street all the time (very similar to the Plaubel). It's a lot of fun.

I have a GA645 I am using now, I like the Mamiya but they are pricey. Makina 67 has a 80 2.8 lens which I like for shallow DOF. I am quite enjoying shooting film over digital, just something about it that is different and more rewarding.

A Mamiya 7 kit with 80 f/4 is ~$1000-1200. Stunning value given the iQ. But the reason to own a Mamiya 7 is the 43mm; simply incredible.

Where are you finding these prices? I keep seeing them for 2k-2.5k with lens. Ebay?

Rangefinderforum.com

KEH.com (none in right now, though)

I got mine (7 + 80/4) locally for $1200 with about 30 rolls of film. Then added the 150/4.5 and 43/4.5. Makes such a great travel kit.

I had my first pic from my M published today - just a simple headshot of a businessman (outside a pub a bit after sunset)

I did shoot it with a 1DX/70-200 and OCF too, but they liked this one.
1/45 f2.5 4000ISO (Exif says f3.4 - it guessed wrong)
