Super Selfie by grizzlysghost

Super Selfie

1956 Super Ricohflex that is!

This shot is SOOC, completely untouched from sensor to 365!

Here's the story: I LOVE this little medium format camera! I shot 12 frames today, and I am absolutely pleased with all 12 (which is so RARE for me when shooting film).

Here is one I took today:

Here is the setup for this shot:
(Ricohflex is on the lower tripod, with my Canon aimed DOWN on it from above and a speed flash pointing straight at me from the top of the camera)

@bankmann Thank you so much Bankmann!
@filsie65 Haha, I am pretty pleased; ESPECIALLY at how WELL this old camera performed. Yes, it is a bit finicky and I have to use a light meter with it and the dials are very hard to move; but what results! Yes, you can say I am pretty happy :) LOL
@monika64 Thanks Monika! The Ricohflex has tripod receiving threads like all modern cameras, so I just attached it normally :)
