    Mamiya RB67

    Yeah, I was about -140 years old around the time the daguerreotypes were in action. But that is one point that makes me respect digital photography. It is clean and doesn't harm the environment.

    Mamiya RB67

    I love shooting 120 film. The square format is so logical. The thing I still can't get over, is how much dynamic range film has (I usually use Illford B&W 120). Digital still has some room to grow in that respect.

    Respectable Stereo Tuner Amp?

    The NAD 1020B looks interesting, any idea how hard they are to find? And as for a reciever, I still don't really know where to start. Do most new recievers not have Phono Premaps?
