Range Testing of Realty So Subtle is Done!

We spent an afternoon at Arcosanti, Paolo Soleri’s Urban Laboratory.  They had a wonderful path that allowed me to test the pinhole range and estimate the distance.  I wanted to do this because when I tried it before I was way off in my range estimates.  I got exactly what I needed, and a nice image of their sign:

I plan on going back for Pinhole Day and capturing some interior photos.

So as I embark on my Medical Journey in Arizona, as  I am able I will be doing only Photography and Music as my therapies.  Most of my cameras are shown here.  But these are the ones I’m taking to AZ:

My Medium Format Favorite:  Mamiya 6X7: with 43 mm, 50 mm, 150 mm and 210 mm lenses.  But I mostly use the 43 an 50 mm.

Mamiya 645 for more versatility.  This camera gives me all of the SLR options, including  a a nice 80 mm macro:

The Fuji GA645Zi; My Medium Format Street Camera, because of the auto-focus and auto-advance.  Basically a medium format point and shoot;  which is why I got it.

Pinhole Cameras: Diana Multi:  I’ve had a lot of fun with this camera over the past year.

The Reality So Subtle Pinhole:  Still working out the Range Finding on this camera.  I have the filter-option 6X6 model.  I have to say this camera has the smoothest mechanism of any Pinhole I’ve ever used.  So I’ll take it with me and work on the range (maybe I should watch some of the YouTube videos?)

And Finally, my “riding shotgun” always in the front seat and ready Minolta X-700:  My jump out of the car and shoot camera.  I have 3 of these and they are all going.  I use my trusty Tamron-adaptall 28-200 zoom.  A combination I have been using since the early 90’s.

OK, It occurs to me that I won’t really use all of these cameras in a 3-4 month period.  Which one would you leave behind?
