Street shooters! What is your go to body/lens setup? We know a lot of folks love the Leica M6/M4 with a 35mm/28mm. Then there is the debate of Leica glass vs Zeiss vs the economical Voigtlanders. Anyone ever rock a Bessa? Though basically, any film body is going to do the same thing (depending on if it has a light meter or not) but there are some things about the Bessa that are just so nice. They come in A (with an internal meter) or M (mechanical, no battery ever needed). They have guidelines automatically in the view finder you can manually switch. And for those who've never used a Leica, they load like any normal 35mm vs the way Leica's load (sometimes we want to pull our hair out loading a Leica especially when you think it loads and then frame 38 comes around and you've exposed 38 frames and the film hasn't advanced). Bessa's might not be as quiet as Leica's but they definitely are a contender when it comes to choosing which range finder you want to ball out when street shooting! And if you need some help trying to figure out between the R2, R3, and R4, the R2 is for 35mm, R3 for 50mm and R4 for 28/21mm!

Lens flare can be pretty unpredictable. Except for when it comes to the Pentax 105mm 2.4 lens. It has this reliable capability to create these circle flares. It takes some practice to place them correctly but man, when you nail it, you nail it! Are there other lenses you guys love for lens flare? If so, let us know in the comments below. Inquiring minds want to know!n Great shot by @davidroseirl⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kodakprofessional #ektar #pentax67
Anyone else getting the Vivian Maier vibe from this photo? If you don't know who Vivian is yet, do yourself a favor and go watch Finding Vivian Maier. And if you don't own any of her books, check out A Photographer Found. Her work is arguably the best street photography of Chicago. It just might change your life.

Let's talk about the Mamiya 6. It definitely has a cult following. It is a 66 rangefinder that has a collapsable lens making it a really great choice for travel photography. Plus the lenses are pretty legendary. The normal is the 75mm f/4 which might sound slow to you but it is a leaf shutter camera which allows you to hand hold at 1/15 no problem so f/4 is not a problem! Who else rocks out their Mamiya 6?
