So maybe I'm being an idiot, but I'm really craving the photographic experience that I used to get with medium format cameras, especially the old 500C series of cameras. As I'm looking around I'm learning that there are some affordable options out there, and I'm constantly reminded of my ignorance of the high-end photo realm. The last time I used medium format it was all about B&W darkroom work, but I'm not willing to go back to chemical imagery.
My digital experience was Fuji S2 Pro -> S5 Pro -> the X-Pro-1 system I'm using now. Most of my work is in Lightroom.
How much will this need to change if I pick up an older MF back and camera system to match?
And tougher: how much should I budget for such a system? I want to know up-front if I should just rule this out as an option.
Usage: photography. I love the process, and the wife and I are decorating our house with images we take while traveling. Most are smaller than 20x30, but not all.
Thanks. Help me cut through my ignorance here.
