help me please...? I am trying to find an affordable medium format camera for my gf and I to share we want a rolliflex but don't know if we should get one of the cheaper ones for the moment or just get a single lens camera that is medium format. What do you recommend?
The Hasselblad 500 C/M would be my recommendation. It’s an easy camera to live and grow with in that you can adapt it to your shooting style and she can adapt it to hers. There are a plethora of different focusing screens, finders, lenses and other accessories that allow you to customize you shooting experience. I own three Rolleiflex twin lens cameras and I love them because they work for me. I prefer the waist-level finder and “standard” 80mm field of view. I like that the Rolleiflex is rugged and unique looking… But if you want versatility, reliability and superb quality, get a Hassleblad :-)
Hey man, i really enjoy your work! Im fixin to buy an m6 and i thinking about the ttl as opposed to classic because of the larger shutter dial and im going to be using flash a lot. I was wondering if its worth extra money for the ttl vs. classic?
Hey! Thanks- Glad you like my work.
O own both the M6 Classic and M6 TTL- If money is no option, go with the TTL. The price isn’t too much higher that the classic. I prefer it to the Classic because that larger dial also turns in the direction that the meter arrows point. The M6 Classic and older models (including the MP) all have shutter speed dials that turn in the opposite direction. Flash on the other hand only matters if you’ll be using the TTL function on your flash. If you manually set your flash and do not need TTL flash metering, the Classic M6 will work just the same as the M6 TTL.
