Here is a dilemma I never expected to have either.... I have a bunch of single purpose cameras to choose from so it makes this weekend's shoot a chore before I even go. Locally they are having a reenactment of a civil war (no war is civil by the way) engagement. Now I look much more cool taking a semi view camera on a tripod, but it is impossible to get all the details right with so many things going on. Besides nobody can hold still long enough for a paper negative shoot. If I can't get a real antique look why bother right? So rule out the two view cameras (One horizontal one vertical) setup. Inter the old field cameras. Down to just the Graflex here. But i don't want to lug around film holders even if I do look almost as cool as with the black cloth model. Okay how about the field cams with the roll film backs. Now those are a possibility. Let's call that option 1. Pain in the butt to reload and a pain in the butt to lug all that 'stuff' around in the hot sun. Make a note take a canteen with water this year, Bourbon dries one out worse, lesson from last year. Option two, Russian leica knock off. Now that is small, easy to carry, old enough to qualify as vintage if not antique. very good option there. The modern slrs are not an option since I try to never be seen holding one of those. The 120 will give me a much better image to work with but is inconvenient. The image from the 35 Russian is almost as good, but wont have the same feel. See it isn't easy being a retro photographer. So here is the question what would you do and why?
