It is a twin lens reflex medium format film camera, the top lens for viewing and the bottom for taking, and uses 120 film.

Sweeeeet camera there!

Great exposures, you controlled your flash wonderfully; seriously soothing to the eyes :)

I most especially love how the lenses just reflect of whatever was behind you. ;)

Nice job, here is a challenge for you. Setup that same shot again and get a nice gradient of white in the background.

What would he have to do Greg? Add a second off camera flash? Possibly back left aiming down onto the subject? Just like a hair light? This is going to bother me until I know.

It is one of those setups that is deceptively simple once you figure it out.

Have you done so yet, Andrew?

I am looking for this medium format cameras. But too soon for me. Had to improve myself more.

The think I wanna ask guys, what are the advantages of medium format cameras over a FX camera.
Why those pictures from medium format cameras looks that great?

Bigger is Better

Sorry for being absent for the past couple of weeks, school has been time consuming.

Well the reasons medium format, film and digital, looks so good is because when shooting pictures bigger is always better (granted the digital sensors are up to snuff). It is all about sample size and how much detail that sensor or film can resolve. And being that medium format sampling size is about 3 1/2 times the size of 35mm cameras, film and digital, and even bigger than our crop sensor cameras.

If you were a professional photographer back in the day and you were really good, you made the move to medium format by getting a Mamiya, Hasselblad, Rolleiflex or many others, but those were the top of the line MF cameras. The jump to MF was pretty big but, it paid off pretty quickly.

Today the "jump" to MF digital from 35mm digital cameras like Canon and Nikon is a canyon and very expensive. For example a Nikon D3 new is $5000 and some lenses will run you another $10,000 so total of 15,000. That same 15,000 will not even get you the digital back for most MF systems today, and some can run upwards of 50+ thousand. But like I said in the film days, it will pay off.
