Just watched it...what a brilliant photographer!! I knew of her...but this program really opened my eyes as to the scope of her work and her sense of aesthetic. It also shows the gear freaks what can be achieved with a pretty basic outfit...Rollies cost a fortune nowdays but a YashicaMat 124G will give very similar results..and have a built in meter...she must have judged exposures by eye. As it happens, I deved a 120 film (HP5) and hung it up to dry minutes before the program started...can't wait to scan it!!

Surprised they didnt mention the possible link When she visited the Robert Doisneau exhibition (where she snapped Dali) and the next day bought a Rolleiflex which became her camera of choice....Wonder if they had a chat, Still its all circumspect.....

It would still be my camera of choice..I foolishly sold my mint 2.8f. Apart from what it would be worth now, it was the most versatile camera ever made in my opinion. The lack of interchangeable lenses never seemed a problem somehow for the style of photography it was intended for. Upside down, waist level, sideways (could even fit the Hasselblad 45 degree prism with an "eastern block" made adapter) plus virtually silent shutter, a transport action to die for and Zeiss or Schneider optics...just gorgeous!!! I want it back
