I'm looking to buy my first medium format camera and struggling to decide between the options I've found at an online camera shop. While I love to collect cameras, I can't justify the cost as I'm just an amateur though I'm really keen to build up my skills and portfolio, and hopefully take jobs when I have enough confidence in my abilities. Therefore, I am looking to buy one camera that will suit my needs, and last me a good few years. I currently shoot in natural light, mainly street photography, and portraits. I may move into studio portrait photography at some point. I want a camera that is easy to take around, with sharp glass, and reliability. For example, if and when it breaks a few years’ down the line, I want it to have replacement parts easily available, and be able to find people who know how to fix it. I only want SLRs as that's what I'm familiar with and how I like to work. These are the cameras I have a choice between from the camera shop - the Mamiya 645s and Hasselblad are around the same price, and the Bronica SQ is a little cheaper, the Bronica ETRSI a lot cheaper. My choices are: Bronica SQ-A w/ 80mm F/2.8 MAMIYA 645 PRO W/ 80MM F/2.8 MAMIYA 645 AFD II W/ 80MM F/2.8 HASSELBLAD 500CM BLACK W/ 80MM F/2.8 C BRONICA ETRSI W/ 75MM F/2.8 or wait and save up for the Mamiya 7 The Hasselblad is fully mechanical but I don't like the 6x6 format, and I like the Mamiya 645 but I know can develop issues with focusing due to its mirror - so that feels risky. I really like the Mamiya RZ67 but it's not portable, and I've looked up a few cheaper, Russian options but they are notoriously unreliable. There is also the Mamiya 7, which seems perfect, but expensive. I want to buy one camera and invest in that system for a good few years, so I’d rather pay upfront for what will be right for me, rather than buying a cheaper option and then wanting/needing to buy another camera in two years’ time. So I'm unsure whether to get one of the above, or save up for a Mamiya 7.
