52 rolls: A bench with a view and other snaps
So I went and bought something I’ve wanted for quite some time: the Fujifilm GF670 medium format rangefinder camera, otherwise known as Voigtländer Bessa III. It’s a dual format camera capable of shooting 6 × 6 and 6 × 7 formats. The format is selectable via a switch inside the film chamber. If the selector is in between the two formats you get 6 × 6 framelines in the viewfinder but exposures that are somewhere between 6 × 6 and 6 × 7, as I found out after shooting my first roll of film with this camera. In other words, I thought I was shooting square format but got more or less 6 × 7 exposures. This also explains the cover picture: I lined up the film with 6 × 6 index mark and hence ran out of film.
I’ve also decided that I’ll try to shoot at least a roll of film each week for the next 52 weeks. I’m not going to share every frame here, but at least something from every roll. Anyway, here are a few shots from my first couple of rolls Portra 400.
