Dear sirs,

I still shoot film, sometimes. The DOF and rendering in portrait and the quality in outdoor landscape is the reason. I use 6x6, Bronica S2a, 75mm Nikon and 150mm Zenzanon. But it is somewhat expensive to get realy good scans to get the quality to print. My Epson V750 is good, but not good enough. I sometimes get professional scan, - Noritsu and then the quality is good. Black and white I do myself as done some 40 years, but my darkroom for printing is packed away. My ink-printing has not got the level I like. I have also Zeiss 6x9 and Rollei 6x6. My old Primaflex is worn out. My old FE2 and 801 is not much better than my LX5, IQ-wise. With film, - only MF

All my cameras late of 1950 still works. I don't think you can say that about digital. Some days I need a FX DSLR to replace my film MF. I think they are good enough now and you can mimic film.

I have a Kodak 1-A jr that I modified for 120 film and working on a project currently with it. I still have and shoot a Nikon F. I find its best to keep options around for if anything motivation. So your Primaflex maybe worn out but it definitely still has value.

Ive always wanted to get into wet-plate work but just never managed to pull it together.
