Contax 645

Why shoot with film?  Long story short, it’s different from digital and when shooting with medium format like the Contax 645 or Pentax 67, it’s totally unique.  The images that come from a medium format have a very different quality that I can’t technically explain but subconsciously I recognize.  The film I use is Fujicolor Pro 400H.  Here are some examples:


Contax 645 with 80mm Zeiss, Fujicolor Pro 400H 120.


Contax 645 with Carl Zeiss T* Planar 80mm f2, Fujicolor Pro 400H 120 film.
