I had been meaning to get into the medium format 6×7 game for a while and I finally bought the Pentax 67 (the “middle” version before the 67II) at an auction. For a long time, it was my go-to medium format camera. We had a real love-hate relationship. I loved the 105mm lens and hated, […]
I get easily excited about the little things. Whether it’s a new film stock, a film stock revived from the dead (come on Agfa Vista 400!), a new camera, a newly discovered old camera, or literally anything with the word Mamiya in it, my creativity starts rolling and I get my butt off the couch […]
As the title suggest this article is a love letter to TLR cameras, specifically the Mamiya C220. Before I get to that, I’d like to start with a little personal history. When I first got into film photography back in 2002, My parents bought me my first SLR, a CANON EOS 300. Boy was it […]
This five-part review has taken the best part of three years to complete. At over 40,000 words, I admit that it is quite long (!) but I wanted it to be as detailed and as precise as possible. To the best of my knowledge, no book has ever been written about the Mamiya RZ67 Professional, […]

For part three, I’ll be covering the lenses. If you’ve read the previous two parts, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of the […]
Welcome to part two of this short but exhaustive series of articles on the Mamiya RZ67 Professional camera system. In part one I gave you a deep overview of the RZ67 system; its history, breadth, basic steps to taking your first photograph, focusing and use cases. Part two dives deep into the RZ’s revolving back, […]
The Mamiya RZ67 is very interesting and in many ways, an unusual camera. It’s not very easy to operate and a little bit slow if you’re not used to it, so it’s maybe not a camera for everybody. It’s also huge and a bit heavy and was primarily created for studio work and landscapes for […]
About a year and a half ago I finally bit the bullet and bought my very first medium format camera, a Mamiya 6 MF.
In 1975, Mamiya introduced their M645 series of medium format cameras. The M645 series have been very successful over the years, continually being upgraded and refined.
What you see below is my Mamiya Sekor RB67 Pro S, the camera I’m reviewing today.
The Mamiya C220 Professional TLR is an engineering marvel and I haven’t found anything about it that I don’t like.
The Mamiya 645 1000S was not my first medium format camera.
I’m here today to provide you with my review / comparative overview of the Mamiya Press Super 23 and the Mamiya Universal Press cameras.
