About This Video
Shooting the Mamiya RZ67 for the first time at the beach loaded with a roll of Ilford HP5.
It’s not often I take HP5 for a seascape. Usually I’m on a slower speed film but for once I didn’t want silky smooth long exposures. I was also worried about getting grain!
I developed the film in XTOL 1:1. I felt Stock would get too contrasty.
I was very happy with my photography and developing on this shoot and the Prints came out wonderful.

Format – 645, 120 Film

    Do you get paid by the word? Then you must be rich enough to buy a real tripod. That $25 Velbon will hardly hold up a 35mm SLR, much less a heavyweight like the RZ/RB.

    The horses picture turned out quite nice, I'm sure the riding club will like it. Beautiful series of photos.

    Hi Roger – really interesting couple of videos as its a camera I like the look of. Small technical question; I don't normally get too hung up on sharpness but is the lens on the RB67 noticeably softer than on some of your other cameras?

    So wrong; loading 120 films on a Paterson reel isn't "quite simple to do in the dark." I've had a film jump off the reel or never advance. A brand new Paterson reel is a pain in the rear end because it takes a lot of handling to get the notches to line across from each other. The Kaiser or Samigon reels are easier to load. Of course, after opening and twisting the Paterson reel 200 times, I finally got it to line up correctly. However, I still like the Kaiser reels for loading 120 films. The film absolutely must smoothly advance on the reel so the developer contacts all the film.

    Love how the sand came out. I thought at first it was waves. I may have to bid on that one.

    Very nice set of photos. I saw Tom Heaton peg old cds under his tripod legs. Might make working on sand a bit easier…

    Good vlog the reception was even good in Bembridge lol!!!! You probably do this but just in case you don't snip the corners off the film just a small cut to angle the film and it dramatically eases the loading of the film on the spool it helps get pass the little ball bearing sometimes the the film catches I've been down yaverland the last few nights but did not see you I saw the horses though 📷📸📷

    Great camera I shot Mamiya for a few decades but went with the Hasselblad 500 CXI a few years ago. Because I wanted a fully mechanical camera. I had it fully CFA and replaced seals and a spring. Because I want it to last the rest of my shooting life. But I sure miss the bellows focusing on my old Mamiya.

    Hi, Rodger, did you know if you use a stock solution of Xtol you can reuse it time and time again, all you got to remember is after say developing 4 rolls of 120 film, pour away 70 mils and add 70 mils of unused to the working solution
