    Someone in Memphis has this HP401 back which they say is for a Mamiya 645. Does anyone know if it is compatible with the 645AF? I cannot find any information for the life of me.

    Thanks.

    The HM401 back is the film back for the 645AF, of this I am certain. I'm thinking the HP401 is the Polaroid back maybe?

    Right, I knew it was a Polaroid back, but everything I read last night said it was for the Pro Super and TL. I was wondering if this could also be used on the 645AF.

    It probably doesn't have the electronic coupling for use on an 645AF.

    I guess the only way to be sure is to e-mail Mamiya. They responded fairly quickly to a question I had on Metz flash adapter modules and which cameras they support.
