    Ok.


    Well, obviously the piece of film in your camera is giant compared to the chip in my camera.

    Are the lenses bigger around, or further from the film plane? Or something!

    Like would a thrifty fifty work on a medium format camera? Or are the lenses totally different? The impression that I have is that my lens would only light the center of the film.


    Told you it was a stupid question. :rofl:

    it kind of varies with the models. I know my mamiya lenses are way different in size than any of the canon lenses I have. All of the lenses for the RB67 use a 77mm filter size, so one filter will fit all lenses... all of your controls are right on the lens, you set your exposure and ap using dials on the lens. your focusing is done using a bellow... it's a complete different monster. Viper could probably add something to this as well... I know he's got experience with them.

    :cool: Thanks for taking the time to answer that.

    So you can't alter the shutter speed? Or is the shutter in the lens?

    it's on the lens. faster shutter is 1/400 slowest is 1 sec then there is a "T" setting, which is like bulb mode.

    lenses with a longer focal length don't actually 'zoom', they just produce a larger image circle. you could put a 50mm lens on a medium or large format camera, but it wouldn't produce an image large enough to cover the negative/sensor, hence the crop factor on modern DSLRs.
