Probably not, Graham, I saw the kind of photography the seller of this camera was doing and the photography the buyer who took the camera this morning.
All colorful and kind o’fashion photography that I don’t practice and not interested at the moment.
New times will come and who knows what will bring.
Thank you for your insights.

" I put screen protectors on the LCD monitors of all of my digital cameras."
Is that a glass screen protector? My Best Beloved had a glass screen protector on her Nikon DSLR once upon a time. She inadvertently bumped it against a table corner and didn't notice that the glass had broken into jagged shards. When she next lifted the camera to her eye, the shards of glass cut her face! I promptly consigned all of the glass screen protectors from our cameras to the bin!

Alex, some cameras suit us, some don't. Obviously this one just doesn't suit you.

Who is Santiago?
LoLSantiago, handling with this is fine, it feels good and solid.
Julio, maybe flatness is the wrong description, it just I didn’t like any of the photos, no inspiration, maybe it was me.
One solution can be let the camera rest and take it when I feel ready for it.

If picture sharpness is good, "flatness" could be a development issue.

Thanks Pablo and James! It is good to hear the sound of the shutter once again, and hope that the picture has been captured.

Can't help you, but years ago I played with the Bronica 6x4.5 camera with the nomal lens (75mm I think) for a few days
This was the early 90s, and I can;t rememeber the exact model

The camera was quirky and solid, the lens was good and everything worked fine, I mated it with Agfa APX100 and got good results

At the end I didn;t buy it, its ergonocmics were not for me; I got an appreciation of those cameras later in life

Hi all,

As the topic says I need help with that camera, I have the 100mm lens and the right hand grip, Imlike the camera, how it feels, etc... but so far I haven't found my 'touch' with it.
First time I used this camera was one year ago with the 65mm lens and the photo of the snail was the only one decent, now I have tried with the 100mm and from two rolls I got nothing good, photos seem flat to me and I'm starting to think this camera is not for me.

Any advice I can get from you when/if something similar happened to you and cameras you have/had?

Thank you in advance,
Alex

Nice replacement. I have a ten-year-old Pen EP-1 and, despite my hopes when I bought it, I have never liked it. Maybe I should turn it into a dedicated pinhole, too.

Thanks, Alex and PF! I still need to have new glasses made, the old multifocals are useless now.

Eye sharpness improved so much that I can focus a RF without glasses! I will try next my old Retina II.

Nice images, Alex. A demonstration of the successful use of an all manual, complicated camera. I know some people who use the latest all-singing-and-dancing digital gizmos who couldn't have captured images as good as these. Bravo!

Glad your eye surgeries went well, Julio. The docs say I may never have to do cataract removal, but then everything else seems to be breaking down. You still have your fine sense of composition, and excellent choice of subject matter.
