A few shots from England

    As I said once before, the camera I concentrated most of my shooting on
    while in England this summer failed without warning, consequently, many of
    the shots I had the highest hopes for were not recorded at all. Still, I've
    added four (taken with a Mamiya 6 and F3HP) to my website:
    www.mattclara.com

    Check it out if you have a minute.

    Nice work! It's a shame about the camera malfunction in England...would
    have liked to have seen them.

    I'm surprised your Mamiya 65mm lens failed without notice; these are
    ususally very reliable lenses.

    And I've used it for years without problem (ok, three years). It wasn't
    until I did a one second exposure that I realized the shutter wasn't
    functioning properly--I'd hear it open, but not close. Unfortunately, that
    was week three of my four week trip.

  7. Is there some reason why you refer to it as, "the camera I concentrated most
    of my shooting on
    while in England this summer", instead of the Canon model xx, or the Nikon
    model yy? Are you afraid of re-igniting the famous Canon-Nikon wars?

    No, it's just off topic, as it was a medium-format camera. Mamiya RB67,
    various parts of which I've had in for repair totalling at least 5 times.

    Plus I go into the details on my site. Check it out, William... the pics
    aren't half bad! ;-)

  9. Yes, they are nice. You've posted the one of the two horses before....I
    remember brightening it up with Photoshop to get the detail in the horses
    faces. (I am a "detail in the shadows freak") My son-in-law uses an RB67 for
    his portrait work. As far as I know, he has had no trouble with it.

    The shot was a real compromise in exposure. I'd like more detail in the
    ponies, too, but not at the expense of the soft pastel light in the sky.

    That's pretty much how I feel about them. Thanks.

    I always fire a camera's shutter between rolls of film, once on the slow
    1s setting, and once at the highest speed. You can eyeball big problems.

    Just recently I eyeballed that a Compur shutter on my LF camera was
    starting to get sticky. Its being CLAed right now.

    Matt, lovely! Great photos of a wonderful area. Thanks for sharing
    them. Done quite a bit of hiking around the Plymouth area in years
    past.

    I'm going back to have another look. ;)
