|The Mamiya RZ. The workhorse professional roll-film camera.|
Students on my beginners photography courses often look at their cameras as if they were mythical one-eyed beasts whose mysteries will never be understood by mere mortals.
They want to take better pictures and understand more about their cameras but one glance in the camera manual can leave them awestruck with the astonishing technical complexity that is digitally available. They can easily assume that only by mastering the camera can they progress as a photographer.
