For the longest, my friend Loti has been telling me about her beloved medium format camera that she refers to as Big Mamma; a vintage Mamiya RZ67 with a 110mm f/2.8 lens.. She brags on how sexy & sweet Big Mamma is all the damn time.
This past Friday, I got to experience Big Mamma for myself. She is big & sexy & sweet as Loti said.
Actually when I saw Big Mamma, my tip got moist! When I held Big Mamma I lost my cool!!!
Loti was like don’t drop her.
Looking through Big Mamma’s viewfinder was like looking through a magic dreamy looking glass. Quite exhilarating.
So of course you know I must have my very own Big Mamma. I’ve actually been scouting eBay & Craigslist.
I feel so pressed to have this camera but I need to slow my roll until the fall. I’m thinking that a Mamiya RZ67 will be my self-birthday gift.
For now, I need to figure out how I’m gonna scan the film & consider getting a new light meter. Blah!
The photo above was taken by Loti via Big Mamma’s Polaroid back. I know… I looke like a hot husky model. Don’t hate.
