Camera Finds: Bronica ETRsi

Camera Finds: Bronica ETRsi

It's been an awfully long time since I've done one of these camera finds posts and to get back into it I thought I'd go with a beast of a camera, the Bronica ETRsi! This camera was one of my early attempts at gambling with my money on eBay and to my relief I ended up with something that wasn't utterly terrible! :D The ETRsi is primarily a medium format camera but it's also incredibly versatile with a broad range of film backs available.


Apart from it's many uses as a camera the overall build quality and the feel of the camera when operating it is one of the things I like most about it, it's an absolute joy to use! As I mentioned previously you can get many back for this camera including a Polaroid version and you can even get an attachment to use a digital back if you have more money than sense. 


I managed to get my hands on two types in addition to my 120 version, these allow me to to shoot with 35mm film on this camera. The 135N and 135W the latter of which after using prompted me to alter my style of shooting to incorporate a more panoramic and cinematic look to my work.
