A DSLR, or was it a film camera?

Yes, film only: Graflex XL, Koni Omega Rapid, Mamiya C330, Mamiya RB 67 (my favorite), Pentax 6x7 and 645, Hassleblad 500C and ELM.
Sadly, no digital medium format.

That's quite an arsenal, huh?

I've shot a 500C ... never had one, though. Have had two RB-67s, though, and still own a Pentax 6x7. Also used to have a Mamiya Universal (up to 6x9) ...

The Mamiya (Press?) Universal.. is that the one with the rear movements via a short bellows?

The Graflex and KoniOmega were standard Air Force cameras.
The Mamiyas were my personal cameras, the others belonged to studios where I worked.

No, it didn't have a bellows on the back, but there was an adapter you could buy ....

It was a press camera ... loved it ... unfortunately, it got stolen ... it was a rangefinder ...

The beauty of it was it could shoot ANY format using either 120 or 220 film ... 645, 6x6, 6x7, 6x9

I've played with one, but never used one. Similar to the Graflex XL in design. We had one XL set up with a 70mm back. I think it shot 50 exposures a roll.
Those reels were fun to load!

Fifty, huh? That's quite a few, for film ....

220 gave me 20 exposures on both my RB67 and on the Universal (using the 6x7 back) ....

With the 6x9 = 16 ... With the 6x6 = 24, With the 645 - it was around 30-32 ...

That Mamiya RB67 was truly a popular camera for a while, huh?

It was big and heavy, but that rotating back sure made it easy to go back and forth between verticals and horizontals ... and you could switch backs so fast, too ... I really miss mine ....

I sold mine back in 1980 or 1981.
