5 Frames of water taken on Fuji Reala with a Mamiya 6MF – By Keith Beven

In 1996 I purchased a Mamiya 6MF rangefinder with the 50, 75 and 150 lenses to replace an Olympus OM1/OM2 35mm system.   The Olympus cameras and lenses were, of course, compact and good to travel with and that was also the main reason why I went for the Mamiya, also compact and lightweight but now with a huge 6×6 negative.   And, in this case at least, a change in gear did make a real difference to my photography.
