I had a New Years Resolution which was to stop buying gear and get mine repaired and maintained. Well that went out the window this week with the purchase of a Pentacon Six. I will write a short review once I have had enough time to play with it. I am one roll into it, a test roll shot and developed the same day that I received it.
Its previous owner is a professional head shot photographer and he took great care of it. It came in wonderful condition and the first roll was a dream to shoot. It is a heavy camera but the image quality is amazing.
The reason I decided to get this camera is that I wanted another medium format camera but wanted one with a good lens. I have a Yashica TLR which is a bit complicated to shoot. My Hasselblad is amazing but cumbersome and in need of repair. The Pentacon was purchased with portrait photography in mind.
Another of my Resolutions was to practice my skills at estimating exposure without a light meter. This camera does not have a light meter so it will help me fulfill that resolution at least!
