Wedding Gear for 2013: D800 (+D700 backup) & 6x6 Film Camera (+6x6 backup). Am I mad?
Dec 4, 2012

Hi,  I want to start shooting weddings on film as well as digital to offer clients something new (or less common in 2013).  I shot a wedding in October this year, 50% on a Contax 645, 50% on D800.  I had a higher percentage of film keepers than expected so was pleased and I took digital shots also as a backup.

I have previously used a D800+D700 for weddings.

I now enjoy shooting my 6x6 more than 645 format.  I wanted to ask your thoughts on 6x6 format for wedding photography as I realise it is uncommon.

Here is an example using the Contax.  I cannot show a people shot as the clients asked me not to - https://www.flickr.com/photos/32681588@N03/8218531082/

I look forward to your thoughts I probably some more blunt comments.

Thanks

Nikon D800
