Return to film

I've been thinking of getting back into film photography for a couple of years. I would like to get into a large format camera (4x5). There are thousands of used large format cameras on eBay but they are either beat up real bad or missing parts or too expensive. I use to shoot 120 medium format film in the 60's and 70's. In high school I had a used Hasselblad and my own dark room. I lost interest in photography after high school and sold all my gear.

While looking at used film cameras on eBay I came across a Hasselblad that looked to be in good condition and was within my price range so I clicked the Buy Now button. I didn't know the seller lived in Denver but he sent me a message the next day and asked if he could come by the house to drop it off. I had camera in hand that evening!

This is the first film photography I've done since 1994 and it's the first black & white film photography I've done since 1974.
