I had time recently to walk around the Financial District in San Francisco, so I used it to take photos using the Hasselblad 500C/M and Kodak Tri-X film. My only working lens for the system right now is the Distagon 40mm with its crazy wide angle of view, so that's what I used.
This is only my third outing with this camera, but it has been remarkably easy to pick up and learn. Changing film while walking is still a trick – I would search out seating for that. On the flip side, with the 40mm lens, there's very little need to worry about precision focusing, although framing becomes trickier. And lastly, isn't Tri-X film just wonderful at rendering all those shadows and reflections.
