    I'm interested in purchasing the Mamiya 645 1000s camera but I can only find film backs for the Mamiya 645E camera,
    I was wondering if these backs will work on my camera? And if not where I can find backs for the 645 1000s
    Thanks!

    The 1000s doesnt have interchangeable backs. Neither does the 645E. Only the 645 Super and Pro do. BUT, all Mamiya 645 models use inserts that you load the film on before putting the insert into the camera (or the backs for the Super and Pro). The inserts are the same for every model and back! You just need to buy the 220 insert for a Mamiya 645.

    Ah ok thanks Chris! So you can't change the film/back half way through a roll?

    The only problem with 220 film is the limited selection.

    No. Only on the Super/Pro/ProTL models with detachable backs. Not possible with the oldie Mamyia 645 bodies.
