New Toy Mamiya RZ 67 Pro II

Finally I found what I was looking for, my very own clean almost unused Mamiya RZ67 Pro II.

The reason why I wanted this camera and why buy it?

1. My current school has 3 Mamiya RZ67 Pro II and a digital back, but I cant always know if they are available & I will not be a student forever.
2. This camera can be  film, Polaroid, or digital. just change the backs.
3. I love the results from a 6x7 camera, specially the portraits.
4. Medium Format cameras are a lot better for fashion and beauty shoots.
5. These cameras doesn't get old that easy.
6. It has a leaf shutter with the RZ lenses which allows camera to have 1/400 sec sync speed.

Also I changed my favorite C-41 negative to Porta. Now on Fashion I will be shooting Kodak Portra 160 with my Mamiya, Juji Provia 100F with my F100.

The reason I don't use Ektar is the Hasselblad flextight scanner I use, has the color profiles and presets for all portra negatives but doesn't have anything for Ektar. Also I find Ektar to give too orange skin colours.
