Upload & Sell: On
Thanks Mike! Have you been shooting much film lately? I've kinda been out of the loop and haven't had much time to read posts. How's it going without the Mamiya 7ii (I'm sure you miss her) - are you a Hassy shooter now; or have you gone digit@l?
I still shoot a decent amount of film - I have about 170 rolls of 120/220 in my freezer, so there's no shortage to shoot...and I have been digital for a long time! Funny you should mention the Mamiya - I decided to reacquire one and it'll be here this week. I don't do nearly the amount of camera trading as some folks do, but it's one of the very few cameras I really missed and regretted selling, so I bought a M7ii with the 80mm. I can still rent the UWAs here for a reasonable amount when I go out into the backcountry. Maybe if I see a great deal, I'll get the 43mm again. Regarding Hasselblad, it was more of a monetary thing. I like the system, but the upkeep and the cost of equipment is quite expensive. My RZ was a pittance in comparison and is just as capable (maybe more so), only at the expense of portability and handling.
One of my early new year's resolutions is to cut my forum contribution time down dramatically. I think I average 2.5 posts/day (since 2010) and in my opinion that's about 2.2 posts too many! I want to push myself to take more risks in photography, and I realized that the catalyst to start that journey isn't going to be in front of a computer. Thankfully this thread (as well as the rest of the forum) has many great contributors, and I am sure I'll break my own rules...like I am doing right now!
