A friend has lent me a Hasselblad 500C, a 50/4 and a 150... Impressive pieces of hardware! He threw in some 120 rolls of color and BW negs and some slides, from his freezer.

Taking a picture with it reminds me strangely of shooting a 120mm heavy mortar: tripod, settings calculated from my D700 or a Minolta hand-held cell, reported onto the huge lens, and finally "firing"! I haven't had a film developped yet, but I am looking forward to seeing those huge negs (and slides later!).

Well, see you later! I'm going to try that (non-)toy some more!

Jetez un oeil à ma galerie if you feel like it! And it's a bit void as of now, but I also have a Nikonians blog

Auta i lomë! And my Nikon's only awaiting daylight...
