Just won a Centrury Graphic ($400.00).Has 2 backs 6x9 and the one I want is 6x7.Has a hand grip and an awesome lens ; Carl Zeiss Tessar 3.5(hope it is coated)

So...I am looking forward to using this -> had no idea I'd be also doing film again...but it's exciting!
And now that film can be scanned...!(back in the game.!)

So I will fill in with results as I get em'.

Now, a sum up;

* my Zeiss 521A(6x4.5) is headed back to seller for a bellows fix...I'm getting it back(I love this camera.!)
*my Walta Waltax 6x6,from the same seller,top-CLA'd cond.,is headed to me.
I have a second 6x6 format - that is my Yashica 124G.(first two are folders...
Century G is a press/semi view type camera.
*and one of the joys of my life is the;
Brooks-Plaubel Veriwide,with the 47mm f5.6,with perminent set rise.

OK. My Century does NOT have a ground glass back ... I wasn't planning on changing lenses or useing as a view camera...though I WILL be useing small view adjustments!(I may eventually get one so as to use as a make-shift view camera...)(guess I wish it had it instead of the 6x9 back)

So ,in review again... ; I will have (film) 6x4.5,6x6,6x7,and 6x10

I say I'm set-...NO MORE BUYING. (.)I am doing minor selling...just sold my Olympus E-PL1 whole outfit(just wasn't useing it enough).
And I decided to sell my Fuji S2 ...will be sold in days.(used it VERY little since buying).

So this 120 stuff is a new interest,hopefully I'm set...and not a collector , but a shooter/photographer.
Want to get my equipment to -'what I am useing' ...

Very happy day...of the 'Century' / Larry

And a note on Zeiss Tessar lenses...; this Century has one...so does my Walta,and my 521A ...and they both have "T"'s (Century no "T")...
but I was REALLY impressed with my test of the 521A TESSAR "T",wow,as good overall as any lens I have to date.So 3 of my 5 film cameras will have Tessars!
And I have seen some results with the Super Angulon 47mm...to super good.(so wide good)
Other is the Yashica.

See my 521A test - here in 'Non-Nikon',see that shot with white building and stairs...I had to 'fix' the whole middle,because of a light leak.
