    Here is my purpose RB67 kit in pristine condition Ain't she a beauty !
    This is completely mechanical with a leaf shutter & NO battery
    Sort of looks like a shoulder fired weapon.:eek:
    The problem I faced was tele lens for my Mamiya 7 limited to 210mm(100mm equiv)

    So here is my focal length solution.
    This is an RB67 Pro S with a 360mm & a 180mm (175 & 87mm equiv)
    I also have a 2x TC but not sure of the optical quality. Test shots will tell.
    The camera with the 360 weighs about 5 1/2 Lb.

    Time to go hunting big oaks in the back country with some B&W

    That is a big gun indeed Dan!

    I look forward to seeing how this tests out.

    How is this for an idea... you can start a thread here in Film titled Post your Film Camera. We don’t have a lot of people shooting film still, bu it would be cool to see everyone’s cameras.
