Rapid Omega 200 Test

I used to have one of these fifteen years ago, and have finally gotten a replacement.

Rapid Omega 200 with Super Omegon 1:3.5 90mm on Kodak Tri-X at 200 ISO.

As scary as it looks

It's a 6x7 camera.

I used to have one. Pretty cool thing, but not very practical to lug around. The cocking mechanism is way too cool to use and play around with, but once you've done that a few times I found myself picking other camera's over it.

Thanks. I thought for so long that 6x7 was the cat's meow. I am starting to think 6x9 has a great charm.
