Features
For over two decades, the world-wide popularity of the Mamiya RB Series has earned its reputation as the “workhorse of the pros.” The RB67 Pro SD is the successor to the legendary RB67, Mamiya’s original revolving back 6x7cm ideal format SLR introduced in 1970. Today the RB67 Pro SD offers the same fully mechanical reliability and simple operation of its predecessors, and complete system compatibility with all previous RB lenses, backs, finders and accessories.

The all mechanical Mamiya RB67 Pro SD is the top choice of commercial and portrait studios in the world today because of its many unique features including 6x7cm format negative size, over four and a half times greater than 35mm, ideal for retouching and reproduction. Its revolving back allows for quick changes from horizontal or vertical composition, without turning the entire camera. Fast and precise bellows focusing with locking feature permits fast and easy close-ups without special attachments.

Specialized Mamiya lens designs including the RB 150mm f/4 Variable Soft Focus and 100-200mm f/5.2 Zoom make the reliable, all mechanical Mamiya RB67 Pro SD system ideal for heavy commercial and studio use, as well as portraiture, glamour and wedding photography.

The RB67 Pro SD features a larger lens mount diameter to accommodate new 75mm PC shift and 500mm APO lenses. New design RB K/L Series ultra-high performance lenses are optically identical to the RZ Series lenses. In addition, the new RB67 Pro SD is fully compatible with all earlier RB Series lenses, finders and accessories. The optional PD Metering Prism Finder has TTL spot or average metering patterns.

The Mamiya RB67 Pro SD’s multi-format capability offers an impressive choice of interchangeable film magazines from 6×4.5cm to 6x7cm, economical 6x7cm pre-loadable film inserts, Polaroid Instant Proofing back, 70mm roll film magazine, motorized 6x7cm and 6x8cm 120/220 film magazines, and Quadra 72 sheet film backs. Other system accessories include interchangeable focusing screens, variable-diopter eyepiece magnifier, and extension tubes, making the RB67 Pro SD excellent for commercial copy work as well.

6x7cm – the ideal format
The 6x7cm format is nearly 5 times larger than ordinary 35mm format. 6×7 is called the ideal format because it enlarges to standard 8×10″ paper size with a minimum of cropping, thereby using virtually the entire image area. Professionals, art directors and clients appreciate the large, detailed 6x7cm format over others.

Revolving Camera Back
The RB67 Pro SD unique revolving back feature permits instant change from vertical to horizontal composition with the flip of the wrist. Fast and easy operation makes it ideal for studio, portrait and wedding use. Built-in auto-frame masking assures accurate composition at all times.

RB67 Pro SD – The Ideal Platform for Digital Imaging 
If your plans include moving towards digital imaging, you will find Mamiya to be your ideal camera platform. Mamiya has always been recognized as the leader for providing a solid front end for all brands of digital backs. In fact, manufacturers of digital backs have come to rely on what traditional Mamiya users have often taken for granted. There are many features that make the Mamiya RB67 Pro SD perfect for the task. For example, the RB has a secure locking mount system that is solid enough to hold even the heaviest of digital camera backs; Bellows-focusing for closeups without additional accessories; and, world-class Mamiya RB lenses.

Bellows Focusing
The RB67 PRO SD built-in bellows permits continuous focusing from infinity to close range with all focal length lenses, without the need for added accessories. Optional extension tubes may be added for macro focusing to 1:1 magnification or greater.

Full Speed Flash Sync
Mamiya’s world class RB Series lenses feature mechanical leaf shutters that allow flash synchronization at all speeds from 1 second to 1/400 second, allowing mixing of flash and ambient light exposure for outdoor fashion, portrait and wedding photography as well as complex studio situations.

Multi-purpose, Multi-format Interchangeable Film Magazine Capability
The Mamiya RB67 Pro SD system offers many interchangeable multi-format options including 6x7cm and 6×4.5cm ideal format, 6x7cm and 6x8cm motorized backs, 6x7cm 70mm film magazine, Polaroid Instant Proofing back and Mamiya’s exclusive Quadra 72 Super Square 72x72mm sheet film back accepting Polaroid 4×5 or Kodak Readyload 4×5 sheets.

Mamiya RZ67

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

RZ67 Pro I ready for shooting

The Mamiya RZ67 line of medium format single-lens reflex cameras manufactured by Mamiya includes three successive models, the RZ67 Professional (first model released in 1982), RZ67 Professional II (released in 1995) and RZ67 Professional IID (released in 2004). RZ67 is a modular camera system, meaning lenses, viewfinders, ground glasses, film winders and film backs are all interchangeable. It is primarily designed for studio use, but can also be used in the field. The RZ67 Sekor lenses have built-in electronic leaf shutters which are cocked and triggered from the body. Focusing is performed with a bellows on the body instead of the lenses.

The camera accepts 6×7, 6×6 and 6×4.5, 120 and 220 film magazines and Polaroid as well as Quadra 72 4×5 sheet film backs. Mamiya RB67 backs are also supported via the G-Adapter. The film speed is set on each RZ back via a dial. There are two versions of the 6×7 and 6×4.5 backs, the model II versions have a second film counter to always show the film count on the top. The RZ67 operates on one 6V silver oxide 4SR44 battery, or 6V 4LR44 alkaline battery. It can be used in emergency mode fully mechanically with a fixed 1/400 sec shutter speed. Multiple exposures are possible in the M-mode. Mirror flip up is supported. The body has one standard flash hot shoe on its left side, one plug for a standard remote shutter cable release, and a socket for an electronic shutter trigger. The RZ67 measures 104 mm (W) x 133.5 mm (H) x 211.5 mm (L) with the 110mm f/2.8 lens, and weighs approximately 2.4 kg (5.29 lbs). The flange distance is 105 mm.

The RZ67 name is adopted from the model name of the Mamiya RB67 (where RB stands for Revolving Back), which was first introduced in 1970, thus the RZ67 also takes backs which can be rotated 90 degrees to provide a horizontal or vertical composition. The orientation is shown in the viewfinder with black guides. The viewfinder also hosts LEDs informing of the state of the camera (flash ready, low battery, dark slide not removed, shutter not cocked). In addition to manual operation (photographer chooses aperture and shutter speed), the RZ67 is able to operate in AEF mode with an AE viewfinder (AE being an abbreviation for automatic exposure), which transmits exposure information directly to the body. In RBL compatibility mode, the RZ67 is able to use RB67 lenses. The biggest difference between RB67 and RZ67 is, that RB67 is completely mechanical. The RZ67 has also mechanical couplings between the parts, but the shutter is electronic, and parts are able to transmit exposure information with electronic couplings. In addition, the RZ67 has plastic exterior body, which makes it somewhat lighter.

Original RZ67 Professional (RZ67 Pro I):

  • Electronic shutter 8 sec – 1/400 sec with full EV steps

RZ67 Professional II (RZ67 Pro II):

  • Some improvements of the electronics
  • An additional knob was added to the right side of the focusing unit for fine tuning of the focus
  • Shutter can be adjusted in 0.5 EV steps

RZ67 Professional IID (RZ67 Pro IID):

  • Has an integrated interface for communicating with digital backs (the earlier versions need either an interface plate or external triggering wires)
  • Minor internal mechanical improvements

 

  • RZ67 Pro I

  • RZ67 Pro II, not much exterior difference between the mode
