I recently ‘inherited’ a Mamiya 645 Super medium format camera. I just got my first negs (and medium resolution scans) back from the lab. I took a roll of expired Ilford SFX 200 to see if the beast still worked. It did but the battery died about two shots before I took this. I remembered that the camera will shoot even if insufficient power is contained in the battery but that the shutter speed is fixed at 1/60sec. So this one’s fully manual and literally a straight scan from the neg … ooh I’d forgotten how negatives are just the most beautiful things.

From here they arced across the sky
