I've got perhaps another 10 rolls of film to work my way through, but so far, I've amassed around 50 shots I'm happy with. Expect a contact sheet to follow at some point.
I love using the Contax 645 system with the 80mm lens for portraiture. As much as I feel that equipment is less important than having an eye for a photo, I do feel that the right camera can instil a sense of confidence in you. But I'd much rather focus on the fact that a decent camera in the wrong hands will produce poor photos. It's really up to *you* whether you capture good photos or not.
