Over the last few years I've collected a handful of different film cameras, including quite a few older medium format bodies. My first medium format body is an Argus 40, a camera made in the 1950's. For a 21st century photographer this camera is quite the challenge to use, as you have no exposure meter, a grand total of 5 shutter speeds to choose from (including Blub mode), the lowest aperture is f/4.5 and you focus by turning a knob to the distance your subject is to the camera - no way to tell if your focus or exposure are correct until you develop the film! At one point in history this was the norm for cameras! It's so easy to take modern photography for granted when every cell phone has a high quality camera built in!
I 100% guarantee you I'll NEVER bring this camera to a wedding, but it does make for some fun. I need to experiment with portraiture with this camera, I wouldn't be able to use it how I normally shoot portraits so it'd push me to do some creative things!
