    hey everyone, i'm just looking for good books links etc on different mf and lf stuff.

    i am new to mf, and have a mamiya 645af, and already am craving a 6x7 negative.

    the buy won't be immediate probobly, but i'm looking to find any info possible on different gear.


    mamiya 7 looks awesome to me bc of size, and holy crap its a rangefinder! can anyone comment on the focusing mechanism?

    GIMME EVERYTHING YOUVE GOT

    Some info about LF: Click.

    Here in the UK, Robert White offers a massive range of new MF and LF equipment. If you want to buy new, that will give you a good idea of what is commercially available (cameras, lenses, accessories...).
