Now I am quite new to Bronica. I have crossed paths with a couple over the years but have never succumbed to the urge to own one, not until last year that is. When I was working, the cameras that I used were Rolleis or Hasselblads, but never a Bronica, even though they were very "in" back in the seventies. I briefly flirted with one of the lovely ETR's, but decided that I preferred square format for commercial work. Looking through my collection I realized that the Bronica needed to finally be part of it, so I sought out the original S model. Now this is a fine looking camera with more chrome than a fifties Buick, but alas, the prices had become prohibitive. The next best was this EC, a very similar beast but with less chrome. The EC, as the name would suggest, has an electronically controlled focal plane shutter, and the focusing helicoid is fixed to the camera with just the lens heads being interchangeable. Well, almost true, the helicoid can be removed and replaced with longer ones for lenses over 200mm. The mirror also has a unique split system, which allows for an oversize mirror, that divides when the exposure is made, so clearing all the vital bits. Bronicas are beautifully built and equally nice to use with a bright and crisp viewfinder. The lenses are also top notch as you would expect for a camera designed for pro use. My Bronica is supplied with Nikkor lenses, except for the 150mm, which is a Zenzanon. I believe that the Nikkors went out with this model. I have the 50mm 2.8, 75mm 2.8, 135mm, 150mm and the 200mm. First the camera.
