An outing for the Mamiya RZ67

I haven’t used my Mamiya RZ67 for a while, especially since getting into large format and finding that my large format kit is actually lighter than my medium format RZ67…

However I decided to take it for a spin on a walk around Gunnerside, which is a side valley of Swaledale in the North Yorkshire Dales. Gunnerside is best known for it’s industrial archeology combined with moorland views as it was formerly an active lead mining area.

To keep the weight down I took just one lens, the 65mm f4, which equates to about 32mm in full-frame terms. I also left the tripod in the car and took a Manfrotto monopod, which also serves duty as a walking stick. I have shot as low as 1/30s with this combination, and as it was a fairly sunny day I was confident I would be able to manage without the tripod.

The film was Ilford FP4+ which I developed in Kodak HC110, Dilution B.
