    Does anyone have a source for parts for a Mamiya C330f? I'm in need of a new back. If someone has one or knows of a possible source please let me know,

    I may have a spare C33 back--not sure if it will fit a C330f, though.

    The C-330f had a major design change for the release mechanism, it was relocated to the body and removed from the back.

    I thought the 220f and 330f had the same back. My 220f and 330s do share this feature, my apologies if I mislead.

    No need to apologise Rick, to be honest I didn't know the C220F had the same back release as the C330S, but I've had a C330F for about 25 years which is why I know about that.

    Thanks Barry but it's my understanding that the 330 has a unique back. My local repair guy has a few Mamiya TLR backs and every one is different than all the others.

    Aparently, changes were made in mid production on these.

    Who and where is your local repair guy? My C33 needs some work and I'm not real happy with my guy at the moment. He's a lot closer then Loveland, but it never hurts to have more options.

    Contact Mark Shanklin, Shanklin Camera Repair. He's right here in Loveland at 1710 W. Eisenhower Blvd. Loveland, CO. 80537. His phone is 970 635-0006.
    I'm pretty lucky here as Loveland is pretty much the center of film photography these days. I have a good camera repair shop a couple miles from home and 2 excellent labs within an easy drive. :smile:

    Who do you use down your way? I'm thinking that if he's an old school repair guy he should have a room full of old parts and might have what I need to repair my C330f.
