Sooo it turns out KEH.com has a pretty robust ebay site...
Mamiya RB67 Pro S with Waist Level View Finder buy it now for $129!
I'm keeping their fleebay store in mind when I'm ready to invest in a MF system
Holy Sh*t I think it just kind of worked sort of!!
Just took my first crack at developing black and whites on my own and it looks like a few frames may have actually worked. I'll be plugging in and setting up my V500 for a shot at scanning tomorrow morning and I might make another attempt at developing another roll tonight since I have everything set up.
Film was Tri-X 400
Stopped with water
Fixed with Kodak powder.
Boy did I mangle that roll while loading it onto my reel. I practiced the process a bajillion times with a pre-exposed roll and had it dialed until I tried the real thing.
Oh well, it wasn't a complete disaster
Edit: The following is what happens when you screw up your developer chemistry. Turns out I was confused, naturally, and mixed my HC110 to the first phase combination (1:3 ratio for 300ML of water!! ). So in essence completely screwing up the whole lot. But, a few did manage to come out ok and weren't over exposed beyond oblivion..

I corrected my error this morning and processed another roll which luckily came out much better. I'll be taking a break from fighting my scanner while those dry and update again later.

We got a bleeder!
The beer opener just slipped while I was cracking open a film canister in my changing bag and took a good slice of flesh off of my hand. Happy to report that I managed to get the roll loaded on the reel and into the tank.
Now, does anyone know what blood does to film? This is one of my rolls from San Francisco so I hope they're somewhat salvageable.
Edit: it appears as though blood does nothing to the consistency and resiliency of film, well at least Tri-X film anyway. I'm very relieved thugh because it was one of the rolls from my Chinatown excursion and I had an absolute blast shooting in that neighborhood. I'll post some from "The Blood Roll" if I scan them tonight.
