Giving the Mamiya 7 + 43mm a workout

  1. Hi!
    Last year i took the Hasselblad Xpan with the 45mm lens to Spain, this year I decided on the Mamiya 7 with 43mm.
    I must say, the 6x7 negatives of the Mamiya do it for me: they just sparkle and show endless detail.
    The Xpan allows, at least to me, for a more snapshotty kind of shooting. With te Mamiya I'm very aware of composition. But out of 90 shots i have only ten keepers, my usual percentage.
    Kodak T400 with orange filter, overexposed one stop, all light metering done with the onboard meter.
