I was thinking about trying an 828 camera. I kinda like the idea of slightly larger image size on a 35mm negative. I know about the film and i have some stock 70mm un-perforated film that i can split and cut to roll onto 828 spools , of which i have one already. so i was looking to purchase an inexpensive Bantam rf camera to try out , but then i started to wonder if the lens is any good, and i haven't known anyone who's shot with this camera. Now i chose the Bantam RF because its a range finder unlike the pony 828 or the flash bantam and it has more controls. Now I'm pretty sure the Bantam from the art deco one is a better camera, with a nice shutter and lens but price makes it out of reach for this poor student. So before i make a purchase of a Bantam RF i thought i would see if anyone can enlighten me to any better alternatives as i dont know of any others that ar not a point and click camera and that aren't expensive ether. So please educate me, and also let me know of things to look out for if it turns out the Bantam is the way to go.
