It must be the weight, combined with the leaf shutter. Anyway, it's a lovely cantankerous old thing.

These are some images I finished printing this week-end, all of them hand-held snapshots, i.e. using it in the guise of a "street" camera, even though they were not taken on "the street" per se.

(RB67, 50mm at f/4.5, 1/8s hand-held, 8x10in analogue print)

(RB67, 140mm at f/4.5, 8x10in analogue print)

(RB67, 250mm at f/4.5, 8x10in analogue print)
That's really great to know. I also love using the RB67
