leopardplaystelephones asked: I'm a big fan of your photos and love the night photos with mf film. I was curious if the C330 was easier to focus than a fixed tlr and how it compares to the gw690 in weight and ease of focusing? Thanks

Thanks!

The C330 has a pretty bright screen, which is one of the best things about it vs. a Yashica Mat or other TLR. I don’t know this for sure, but I’d guess it has the brightest screen of any TLR. It’s still not as bright as screens I’ve seen on some medium format SLRs, so that’s something to consider as well. I never had a huge problem focusing a camera like the Yashica Mat at night, but it is noticeably darker. Zone focusing is sometimes the only option, no matter how bright the screen is, but ever since getting the C330, I feel like my results are much more accurate no matter how I focus.

The GW690 is a huge camera, but so is the C330. They’re both pretty comparable as far as weight goes. I find the 690 a little more awkward, but that probably has more to do with what I’ve gotten used to over the years. Even though TLRs are big, their box-like shape makes them somewhat easy to stick in a camera bag.

Focusing with the 690 is great. It has a bright/contrasty rangefinder, so as long as you can actually see something to focus on, it does the job just fine.

selektormagazine asked: Hi Patrick, I run Selektor Magazine's blog and recently published a photoset of your work. I hope you don't mind. This is part of a photographers on Tumblr directory project I've just started. I've been following you for a while now and I admire your commitment and your kindness, both online and as an artist. Your street portraits in particular strike me the most now. Best. Loïc, Selektor Magazine, France. (I can't include a link here, please get in touch if you don't find it)

I don’t mind at all. Thanks for featuring me and your very nice words about my work! I’ll reblog your post so people can see it here too.
