So we managed to get away from our work during the busy weekdays to go shoot some photos at Labrador Park! Located at the southern point of Singapore, the park also links to an unused jetty where locals fish during the weekend. We decided to try out the Mamiya RB67 Pro SD with a modified Instax Square back! We also brought out our trusty Fujifilm X-Pro2 adapted with a Jupiter-3 50mm lens to capture the medium format camera at work.
The Mamiya RB67 Pro SD has always been on our wishlist, and our friend was kind enough to lend it to us to try it out! Needless to say, we were thoroughly impressed with the clarity of the viewfinder and the quality of the lenses available (we had the Mamiya-Sekor f/4.5 65mm lens to try out). Obviously, the biggest drawback (if any!) was the sheer size and weight, which did weigh on our necks and shoulders after a while.
We were just as impressed with the photos that the Mamiya RB67 captured on the Instax Square film. In particular, the photos had strong contrast effects so it may not be very receptive to those who prefer more vibrant colours.
We were very impressed by the Mamiya RB67, and we hope to lay our hands on our own camera in the near future! Having the modified Instax Square back certainly helps us to keep these medium format cameras in use despite our busy schedules. We certainly hope to be able to share more of our snapshots from the Mamiya RB67 soon!
