6×6 with Kowa Six Part I

Winter light

Burlington ferry docks lit by setting winter sun.

The Kowa Six’s 6×6 format shows off the depth of color that Fujifilm’s Velvia 100 brings to the image. This was shot with Kowa’s older camera — designed similar to the Hasselblad, but with a fixed film chamber built into the body. At 4 pounds-plus, not well suited for handheld photography on the bikepath. I love the big viewfinder, which seems brighter than my YashicaMat or Zeiss Ikoflex TLRs.
