Miscellanous Photographic Equipment and Process Reviews
I can't pretend to be a real equipment maven or gearhead, but I also know that good tools can be crucial in getting good images. I've spent a lot of time working with cameras and associated stuff that's made getting good images a lot easier; some of these are reviewed below (the first three of these reviews are also under Phil Greenspun's photo.net site somewhere). Yes, the reviews here are fairly old -- some of them were originally published in The Medium Format Digest or rec.photo in the mid 1990's -- and the formats don't (yet) conform to the rest of Pandemonia, but they should give you some idea of what I think of the equipment under review.
- Sinar A1 -- Sinar's entry-level 4x5 monorail view camera.
- Pentax 67 -- Pentax's "35mm on steroids" 6x7 medium format SLR.
- Mamiya 6 -- Mamiya's medium format 6x6 range finder.
- Kodak Pro PhotoCD -- Kodak's Pro version of the Photo CD, and how it worked for me with medium and large format images.
