I'm Bill and a part-time photographer. I recently picked up medium format as a side-interest but I would like to eventually use the camera more as part of my workflow!
I currently own a Mamiya AFD II with the 80mm f/2.8 and the 150mm f/3.5 with two HM402 backs! I've had the camera for about 6 months now and I very much enjoy shooting film. Now, I'm looking to grow into a digital back. However, the price points for a digital back are pretty astounding! At the point of an editorial photographer, prices makes sense with leasing options etc but I don't expect to see that in my lines of work.
I have some money set aside to invest in a back, about $2200, but I don't know which direction to go in. I know the pricing seems a bit low for an entry back. Is this price point realistic for a 'starter' back or should I continue on the film and save up more until I have more in my pocket to spend?
Are there decent used digital backs that a 'starter' should be on the lookout?
Thanks for your advice ahead of time!
