Hi,

Most of my experience with photography has been digital, with the exception of some time spent with my grandfather's old Canon A-1 and a few experimental shots with an old Sears Tower 120 box camera, which is a fun, odd toy to play with. Anyway - I'd really like to get into a Medium format system, but don't have a ton of money to spend. Here are my requirements:

  • Medium format (obviously)
  • Reasonable cost (used equipment is not only fine, but preferred)
  • Waist Level Finder (this is absolutely required as I want to do portraiture with it without having to hide behind the viewfinder).
  • Good quality lens
  • Ability to trigger remote speedlights using radio triggers like Pocketwizards.
  • Single lens with enough focal length to do decent portraiture, but short enough to do environmental portraiture...if two lenses are required, I might be able to swing that


If anyone has any recommendations, I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Ben
