  • Summary: This is a beautiful camera. It produces images that approach the three dimensional. Obviously, there are many factors that go into producing a photograph and one can make really rank photographs with this camera as well as with a point and shoot. What this camera will offer you is the truth.
  • Pros: Reassuringly secure in the hands., Bult like one of those little houses detached from the main house that you have to go into by yourself., Picture Quality., It feels like a tool. You feel like you are engaged in a craft when you use this camera.
  • Cons: Obviously, you would be insane to take this out for your holiday snaps., Heavy. Yes., But you knew that. Yes.

  • Summary: Can you beat that when it comes to value for the money ? A used one will cost the price of a mid range SLR, and used lenses will cost you 300$ for a results that simply beat everything, I really mean everything.
  • Pros: - Image quality is just superb, - probably bullet proof, - lenses !!! lenses are just unreal, i mean, shooting at f2.8 1/30 you have something perfect still, the mirror bouncing system is excellent and it looks just so...emotional, you want to touch the paper to feel the texture of what you shot....
  • Cons: - heavy heavy heavy, and bulky, like huge. I mean, it's like driving thru an old italian city with a hummer, - If you decide to add the prism finder for metering, you lose the top down view from the waist level finder. too bad because it's great to work your framing. I decided to meter with an F5...

  • Summary: I love this workhorse. After years of shooting everything on the market, I find it the only tool I need anymore. While people spout the virtues of digital, you are not going to beat the quality of a virtual drum across a 6x7 chrome in the near future.
  • Pros: -Bellows focusing means black stays black., -Few glass elements, few elements means sharper images., -Precision, precision, precision., -Dropped from a 15 foot ladder and continued to shoot with it all day (though some teeth on the focusing rails stripped off), -Partick Demarchelier gave me my fi...
  • Cons: -Some people complain about weight., -Not gonna win any beauty contests., -Often forget and accidently lock lense so shutter becomes a 'bulb' mode. "oops", -Cross threaded lenses while mounting will require Herculean strength., -Quality digital backs cost more than most people's cars., -Not for l...

  • Summary: What is there left to say. This is a leviathon of a camera, Far too heavy to backpack with, needs a massive tripod, lenses are heavy; but I love this camera. It may kill me one day lifting my fully laden Lowepro, but thie camera is worh it.
  • Pros: Built like tank, fantastic revolving back, quick change of backs, quick set-up, bellow focussing. Simply knicker wetting lenses.
  • Cons: Weight, weight, weight. That said I would take it anywhere just to get those gorgeous trannies back form the lab.
