I see you have got the Mamiya C330 - fantastic camera and I sure regret selling mine many years ago! Those 6x6 negatives where amazing (when I had an enlarger and the rest of the darkroom to handle them).

Now I keep my Voigtländer VSL 3-e and Rolleiflex SL 35 as some of my classics - even through both have developed a strange issue, the shutter will only fire succesfully when they are held in portrait orientation. In landsacape orientation the mirror stops a millimeter from the top and need a gentle push to go all the way up and have the slutter fire (both at the mechanical 1/125 sec shutterspeed, I do not have the proper batteries to use the Electronics speeds now).

But for actual use it is the Fuji XT-30 these days, even though I have used the old Rolleinar lenses via adapter on the Olympus E-M5 a few years ago. (Not to mention all the other cameras in the cabinet by now :-P).

I have film for my 2 1/4's but none for my 4x5's, one of my sons uses the C330 every so often.

My first picture with the 5D.
The battery was stone cold dead when I got it and won't take a charge, called Adorama and they are sending a new battery. Tried the battery from my old Rebel that I haven't used in years, it is also dead. borrowed the battery from my son's 50D and went to the store.

Just nabbed a 17-40 locally for a great price (lens is mint). Can't wait to get it out on the 5D. Might go Landscape hunting this weekend at the crack of dawn.

Seagrave Observatory, North Scituate Rhode Island USA, built in 1914 to house Frank Seagrave's 1878 8" Alvan Clark refractor (fully restored and operational) when he moved here from East Providence.
I am the Head Trustee here and we run public open nights using the 8" Clark and our 12" and 16" Meade SCT telescopes.

Going all around with my new (to me) 5Dc, I really love this camera, it gets you away from the auto everything and back to my roots in photography

I think the HDR made the shot a bit worse.

Here is the shot straight from the camera

I agree in this instance. Open public nights there sound like fun. :-)
