I'm venturing into medium format! 35mm digital is fantastic but as a (somewhat) younger person who has learned some darkroom techniques and even shot film , I miss shooting true black & white! (You'll have to pry my digicam(s) from my cold dead hands ... but I've also got a photography addiction that can't be completely met by digital colour alone).
Can anyone suggest (other) reputable online forums to pick up used film medium format gear? I'm looking to pick up, as of now, one of the Mamiya 645's for street and documentary photography within a tight, student budget ($500 or so give or take a few hundred -- I realize that it will likely be 'give'!) I think I've heard of the usual suspects in terms of established businesses -- not to name any names but, e.g., the place in Atlanta -- and of course Ebay. Where else might I look? Either on or off list is fine (adsmitha at yahoo dot com). I greatly appreciate your responses.
If you are risk adverse, I would recommend the place in Atlanta...I have purchased a lot of MF gear from them and it has all been as good or better than advertised.
