120 film and fun things

So remember how I got a good stock of free film from SPE? I finally learned how to use a camera that could take the 120 film, in this case a Mamiya. It looks something like this:

Of course the film I'm using is color film so I won't be able to develop it myself, so it might be a little while before I see some prints of what I've taken... but at least I'm familiarizing myself with the thing. It's kind of exciting, actually, I love the ground-glass focusing (like in 4x5, except cuter somehow) and this time I'm actually kind of understanding what bellows compensation is. So there's that.

Stay tuned for pictures, I suppose. In the meantime:
