These pictures were taken by a friend. Every time I talk to Carlos about his Plaubel the talk always ends up with the Mamiya 7ii in mind. I like the Plaubel and yet I never used one. I think they are beautiful objects and, of course, I’ve seen what they deliver with that amazing Nikkor.

Of course Carlos wants a Mamiya 7ii really bad but I also know he’s not going to sell the Plaubel to get it. They are similar in many ways yet totally different in many more.

Carlos is a dear friend, amazing film dealer and mentor of We Love Film, along with his partner in crime André Sirgado. We Love Film have been doing their bit of work to keep the passion for analog alive.

    Great post. I love that first portrait, the expression and tones are lovely. Carlos is a great guy–I have only known him a few months but he is incredibly awesome and accommodating. Actually, everyone I met and spoke with in Portugal was great. I love that country, and I’ll be back.
