My point of view…
The title of this post does not refer to my point of view as in what I think on a particular subject, but rather what I actually see when I look into a camera, my perspective.
A single lens reflect camera has a prism with two mirrors that “right” the image in the view finder. When viewing what the lens actually sees as you would with a view camera, the image is inverted both vertically and horizontally (upside down and flipped over). With the waist level view finder on this RZ67 there is a single mirror that inverts the image upright, but it is still flipped on the horizon…left is right, right is left. The right brain fights with the left if you’re not used to it.
But I love these medium format cameras. The lenses are so crisp, and the negative so large (granted not as large as the view cameras) you can pull so much detail out of everything. There is just something cathartic about turning a lens and bringing something beautiful into sharp relief.
