You know you're getting serious when you purchase your first medium format camera!
I scoured hundreds of printed and online advertisements and listings for cameras before I finally caved and went all in on Pentax 67.
I beat the absolute hell out of that behemoth. It traveled across abandoned mining roads in a Jeep with a four-inch lift dozens of times. I’m pretty sure I even dropped it. That camera is built like a tank and shoots nothing but film. No Polaroid. (Or “Fujiroid.”)
When I go back to those images I see the most perfect imperfect pictures I’ve taken.
