    Does anyone happen to know if a W/L finder for a c330 would fit an old c33?

    Best to check with Mamiya. I own and use the C330f extensively and have several reference books available. None of these expressly state that the viewfinders are compatable, but there is every indication that there is only one type for all the C-series. I advise further check even though a viewfinder should be cheap.

    Thanks dr. bob.
    I figure that are probably compatable but I will try to confirm it with them.

    Thanks dave.
    Mamiya hasn' replied to my query (yet?)

    That is some Mamiya TLR site! It doesn't specifically answer my question but it appears from the info that there is a pretty good chance that it will fit.

    Mamiya is in Elmsford, NY phone number 914-347-3300. In the past they have been very helpful on the phone, even sent me a free set of strap clips for a M645 I bough second hand.

    I had both these cameras at one time and both the W.L.F, and the Prism finder fitted on mine.

    Hmm. I thought it was explicit that the finders are all interchangable. Section 6.4, second paragraph. All the Mamiya finders will fit all cameras from the Mamiyaflex to the C330f. There should be no problems with the BaierFoto Kiev prisms either.
