big monster weekend.

18 Jun 2013

I rented a Pentax 67ii medium format camera with an SMC 105mm f/2.4 lens this weekend.  The thing weighs more than my Hasselblad!  With 6×7 cm negatives (compared to the Hasselblad’s 6×6 format), the sheer level of detail the Pentax 67 picks up is extraordinary.

I’m happy to report that I have perhaps fallen in love with this camera.    Just look at what it produced.

Perhaps a bit less adept, this 105mm lens, at middle distances, but that’s something to be played around a bit with a couple of other lenses, perhaps:

Just how big is this camera?  My friend Nick and I had a camera duel of sorts in the middle of the Third Avenue street fair this weekend: the Pentax 67ii as captured by the Leica M9:

Huge!  A veritable SLR on steroids.
