This is a request for comments on the camera in the title: I have an opportunity to buy one and one or more lenses (50, 90, 127, 180 and 250 are on offer) for competitive prices.
I know it's not the kind of photo I'm used to, it's much slower, but I am also familiar with the result, and I think I like the format. I also know that the RB67 is an old model.
My question is: is it worth it? For info, the camera is 498 CHF and each lens is priced 348 CHF. There is a prism and two backs included in the camera price, and I could also find a polaroid back, plus extension tubes.
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...

It's a nice 'can of worms'. Worth it and not.
All in all,I'd say, "if you're used to digital,and are well set up,stick with that",because other will distract to other.
I just purchased 19 film cameras (to replace MF lenses for my Nikon ditgital).,
They are good...but...for me...digital and FREE is better.
Film = pay,pay,pay and less less,less.Still good though because able to be scanned...
Nothing campairs with my 'bag of digital'...round to fisheye(FF),to extreamly wide zoom to normal to fairly strong hand-hold-able telephoto...to fantastic macro------
wow----is this heaven?
