Medium format equipment
I have been using medium format equipment since I got into photography, but the first cameras weren't exactly the high-quality cameras that you get these days. The first one was a "Agfa Isolette" that my parents had found (!) right after WWII. After they bought a 35mm camera, I started to use this old camera for my first experiments. The other one was a Seagull, a Chinese Rolleiflex lookalike that I bought used for a few bucks. I'm not using these cameras anymore, but they are still in my cabinet.
About a decade ago I bought a used Hasselblad body, and this is when my serious medium format attempts started.
