    I'd gone from only shooting 35mm to MF for a few months to needing to shoot LF for work. I was using a De Vere Whole Plate/Half Plate/5x4 camera and a 150mm Xenar. I'd guess 1977.

    Back then I'd been using an early pre-WWII Rolleicord, then a Mamiya C33 and a C3, I shot jewellery catalogues with them. After a robbery at work I switched to Mamiya 645's which I still have but they need decent servicing and Johnsons Photopia are useless, one camera has come back fixed still with the same issues :D

    These days I mostly use a couple of Rolleiflex cameras here in the UK and a Yashicamat 124 when I'm in Turkey, my main cameras are all LF.
