I just bought a 5D kit w/ 24-105mm F4L IS and 580EX II, and a Mamiya RB67 :cool:. $4500 :o, now I better find a job to use this stuff to help make up the difference.
I already had a Hasselblad, but my 80mm Lens died so I picked the Mamiya for less then the 80mm lens for the blad.

Also, do you think the Mamiya, hasselblad, or Canon has better Image quality?
I am going to do a test between the 2, using an Imacon to scan the negs in and the like.

I am just out of high school and still don't have much bills yet, only insurance and internet(I have my own separate line just for me). I now am almost out of money for the week until I get paid on Monday then next Friday. But yeah, I can now brag about having them.

="Me"]This is me new Mamiya RB67 that is replacing my Hasselblad. The 80mm lens died on the Hasselblad and it was cheaper to get this kit then the new lens. I got the body, a 120 back, a 220 back, a Polaroid back, 90mm F3.8, 180mm F4.5 and the 45° split image focusing screen.

I love the rotating back, the format is amazing. I will be scanning the prints and negitives when I go to OCC to use Imacon.

I also have Danielle to shoot with this and my 20D in a month or so to a few more shots to post.

As good as digital is now a days, all things considered, I have yet to see something by digital equal the IQ I could get with my Mamiya RB67. I really do miss the camera but something had to help fund the switch to digital.

The RB 67 is an amazing camera and takes amazing quality photos in my op much better than the 5D especially in detail and tone. The Canon on the other hand handles way better. You have some amazing cameras.

A bigger wallet just gives the illusion of having even LESS money to spend. You need a smaller wallet that gets filled faster :D


OP: Nice gear acquisitions. You have plenty of gear, go out and shoot some more! :D

BTW, check your website. The links are all broken on the "equipment" page. The rest are all fine, but if you go to equipment, every link to get out leads to a 404.

I just updated my server to a new version of the OS and have not gotten all the bugs out of it yet. There are also some misspellings and errors that are coming up. I am trying to get them fixed asap.

I did a similar thing with a 1Ds MkIII and 16-35 version II a couple of months back. Welcome to the club! :)

How many times have we all heard that line? As a parent I wish I had control, much less self control. I just wish I had your financial income, or do I?
