Présentation de l'éditeur

Approximately 225 pages with about 220 color images and this book is ENTIRLY pictorial. This book contains artistic NUDITY and is intended for ADULTS ONLY!

There is considerable debate among photographers about whether film is better than digital with about an equal number lining up on both sides and presenting their opinions and relevant and irrelevant data. It is not the purpose of this volume to espouse one position or another. It is sufficient to know that they are each different and subject to a considerable range of interpretation.

However, it is quite enjoyable to take one of these old cameras, that have absolutely no automatic functionality, and create excellent images. I suspect that it is the same force that drives auto enthusiasts to take an old Model T Ford car and restore it. They certainly don’t have the power and ease of operation of modern automobiles but they are extraordinarily fun to drive!

Unlike other books about old cameras this one does not dwell on the fine technicalities of the individual camera (although limited technical data is present) but to present images taken with each camera to show the reader concrete examples of images taken with each model.

The Mamiya RB67 is a 6x7 format camera that is entirely manual (you even have to cock the shutter) and is capable of taking extremely fine images. It is built like a tank! The camera was introduced in 1970 and has a built-in close up bellows allowing for up to 1:1 image capture. The is a wide array of lens and film backs available for both 120 and 220 film. The 120 film provides 10 exposures and the 220 provides 20 exposures. As of this writing 220 film is available only in color whereas 120 is available in both black and white and color (negative as well as transparency). The camera is quite heavy and was used primarily as an in-studio unit but is certainly not impossible to use in the field by those sufficiently hardy to lug the beast around. The body is also equipped with a 'mirror-up' feature that allows for dampening mirror vibration for extremely sharp images, especially when using telephoto lenses.

The author began photography and photo-journalism in early 1963 when he accepted an offer from his local newspaper to write about and photograph sports events at the Arizona high school where he was a junior. After a stint in the service, he had an opportunity to study photography and printing techniques with Bernard Hoffman, a true gentleman and scholar, and one of the earliest staff photographers for Life Magazine.

Since that time he has had thousands of photographs and hundreds of articles published by more than 60 national and international periodicals. He was also a contributing editor for one of them for more than ten years. Topics ran the gamut from professional sports, medicine, archeology, and photography to science.

After twenty years away from Arizona he returned in 1985 and it has been the base from which all his photographic excursions are launched. Along with many others he has embraced digital photography but can still be seen, from time to time, peering through the ground glass of a large format camera, hoisting a large medium format 6x7, or indeed still using a 35mm film camera.

The photographer currently has fine art photography on exhibit at The Center for Fine Arts in Globe, Arizona, and is currently represented by more than ten stock photo agencies where he has more than 13,000 photographs available for commercial use.

Les photos sont bien trop répétitives. Et certaines ne sont pas digne d'intérêt et ne méritent même pas un impression.

I found it to be a little sparse on the RB-67 system description, although the photos used were very good.
As for subject matter, there was a good selection of model, nature and archecture. However the actual number of subjects were very limited. For the models, too many poses that were variations of the same pose. Same for the archecture and nature. While the subjects were interesting, the redundency I found to be a boring and seemed to be used as filler material.

While the book does a decent job of showing the versatility of this system, it would have been much improved by inceasing the number of individual subjects.

There is very little text and almost zero substance. The book is mostly comprised of the "author's" photographs. I did not find the book to be useful at all.

The clue is in the description: "Approximately 225 pages with about 220 color images and this book is ENTIRLY(sic) pictorial."

The title is "Shooting Old Film Cameras..." - well this is quite misleading in my opinion - it is basically a 5 page introduction describing the author's biography followed by a bunch of repetitive and quite boring photographs. Nothing at all to do with the best way to use the RB67 - tricks and tips, that sort of thing. There may have been some redeeming aspect if with each photograph, some form of commentary had been provided - perhaps even a sentence describing the lens and film used. However, that would assume one was wanting to use a similar technique in a current setting. That would be fine if you wanted to create second rate nude photos in a 1960's amateur style. Luckily this 'book' was available for Kindle loan and I didn't waste any money, or a great deal of time, on this 'book'. You are better off getting hold of a copy of "Medium and Large Format Photography" by Roger Hicks
