What would recommend for a starter-level medium format camera? I would eventually like to shoot medium format alongside 35mm but do not know where to start looking. Thanks!

I’m still a huge fan of my Super Ricohflex, which was my first medium format camera. Here are some examples of what it can do. I got mine for 25 bucks and thought it would mostly sit on the shelf, but I soon found myself shooting with it constantly. They go for more now, but they are still reasonable. There are several different Ricohflex and Diacord models to choose from. There are plenty of other good options for TLRs, but the Ricoh’s are common and can be found between 50 and 100 dollars. It’s a good way to get your feet wet without making a huge commitment.
