The transaction was a bit shady. All I knew is I wanted a medium format camera, and this Pentax 67 looked great in the Craigslist ad. I was three days away from traveling to Japan, longing for an upgrade to my Canon AE1 that I could bring along with me.
Craigslist dude and I agreed on meeting at some Starbucks in Tribeca at 2pm. The dude seemed nervous via text. ‘Are you close yet?’ ‘Are you with anyone else?’ the whole transaction was a bit shady. All I knew is I wanted to cop this deal.
Fast-forward to now, this is my go-to body. Despite being the crazy dude carrying around a 5-pound camera, I am a sucker for the huge negatives and beautiful quality scans. I’m proud of my huge, often cumbersome baby.
