This is 6x7 not 6x6, the Fuji can shoot either format.

Why can't I walk down a street free of suggestion?

Oh man. that ass in the first photo....I would do it.
Sweet sandals. jk.
There's another ass in that photo too. it's wearing boots.

You use Ilford film too? OMG we're like BFF4EVR

I like the photo of the girl sitting

I just googled the Camera model. Damn. Fuji rules cameras inspired by classics

Donate for Down Syndrome...oh man. controversial. Too easy of a subject. Fuck it, you have the balls to photo him. There's this retarded guy that shops at my work. and I saw him take a pepsi off a six pack. how do you bust them?

Do those photographers that post up on that pier actually do anything with their photos besides jack off later to them? They all have the same looking body type and dress the same.

Asian girl.

Love the Diane Arbus quote. I feel kind of perverse too when I take photos, but probably not as perverse as those weirdos with the tele lenses standing on the pier. Those creeps give street photographers a bad image.

By the way, you should open up a flickr account or something. That'd be rad.

My oldest brother is diagnosed with Schizophrenia, it can get pretty ugly at times but then it can get really interesting. He's also really creative. Kinda neat.

Tons of babes in this post! I like!

Are you ready?

A.) A question/phrase used by shitty IT companies.
e.g. Are you ready for 2k?

B.) A question/phrase used by shitty rock festival bands
to make the crowd bounce up and down to their
fascist groove thing.

C.) A question/phrase used by shitty eurodance acts AND the
black eye peas.
e.g. Are you ready to fly away to the land of fantasaaay?
or Are you ready to parrtaaay?

I wonder what group that guy belongs to.
Is he trying to sell RAM? Wants the jocks to bounce?
Who knows.God knows.

Anyway.Fuji GF670.Sounds like fun.
6x6 and 6x7. Cool.
They have some Voightlander Bessa in my local store,
besides some 30.000€ Leica, limited.Always thought
of getting me one.They´re quite affordable there/here.

No offense but it´s hard to tell by these scanned and
uploaded pictures watched on a screen if that´s a 200
or 2000 Dollar camera.
Maybe I´m just not experienced enough to do so.

S van, the cost doesn't matter. It could be $5 or $10,000 but the photos would be the same. The only sucky thing is that nobody makes a 2 1/2 rangefinder but Fuji or Mamiya, and they are all expensive.

Good point on that cancer charity link. Real problem is that no significant progress has been made after spending all that money. These research efforts might learn a thing by consulting the works of William Easterly.

I agree with Vlad. You could reach a wider audience with your photos on flickr. More people might buy your books and come to exhibitions too. It would also be cool to see a condensed version of your snapshots in one place rather than having to scan through the archives of the blog.

Hey S. You can't tell the difference in quality because the image quality depends on the scanner that was used. If you looked at enlarged prints though, I'm certain you'd be able to tell the diff. More expensive cameras also have better build quality and are made to last. I'm not saying you need an expensive camera to take photos but expensive cameras are expensive for a reason.

All those medium format rangefinders are rad. I've been wanting to get a Mamiya 7 for the longest time but instead I keep spending my money on women, drugs, and booze.

What the hell is this event anyway?
Posted By: muchacho on October 25th, 2011 at 11:29PM PST
All of you are right.What I just meant was and as Vlad said, the quality of the scanner and the resoultion (and maybe my computerscreen) sometimes won´t let you see what quality the original pictures has.I just said that because Ed mentioned the use of his new(?) camera.And as I said the screen sometimes won´t let you see the big difference in quality the camera has.I guess we´ll see the difference looking at the printed ones on your exhibitions.
And of course there´s a reason why some cameras are more expensive then others.But what I didn´t know was that a rangefinder has that importance.But that´s why I´m here.Observe and learn...
