I recently went into fotocare to look at all these new toys I keep reading about around here. I don't like any of them.
Hasselblad H3: grey handle looks plasticky and feels plasticky, not nice at all, most importantly though, mirror slap.
HY6: plastic, ugly, cumbersom, horrible viewfinder, looks so cheap it's terrible. Heavy.
Mamiya 645 AFD 3: the grip s wy too big to hold easily, I have really big hands and it was still uncomfortable to hold the thing.
Saves me some cash at least, I'm sticking with my 645 AFD (original version). Shutter lag can be a problem I hear, I don't shoot moving things so it's not a problem. I do shoot people but there not moving quickly enough to even notice the lag. AF to me, is as good (or as bad) as any other MF camera. I love old tech, I have a spare body which cost about 800 bucks. I recently broke a shutter, sent it off for a brand new one, 400 dollars and a loaner in the meantime, no questions asked, no pro service agreement bull. Send us the loaner body back when you've done with it deal (from Mac group, a great company).
It seems there's nothing in the world of backs out that could make a better 11* 14 print than my P21 (non plus model) either.
Makes me a very happy camper indeed!
