    I'm looking for the manual to the Mamiya 6 folder. I've spent some time repairing one (the winding mechanism was broken, among other things - so I bought a second junker and did a lot of transplanting), and it's basically up to speed again now. Does anyone have a copy of the manual they could provide? Really just for curiosity's sake.

    To clarify, I mean the manual for one of these:

    Not the modern Mamiya 6 (Mamiya happily has the manual for that uploaded on their website)

    Both Butkus and Camerapedia came up short - though I did eventually find someone who's selling reprints at $20 a pop. Thankfully John Nanian (jnanian) scanned and emailed me a copy of his manual - a great help.

    May I ask for a copy? :smile:

    I just received a nice little package with a Six V - and it is fully working. It just needs a good cleaning and I have to fix the leather that comes off everywhere.

    First I could not figure out how to load the film. On this site it is explained:
