    I'm considering buying a Mamiya press camera. Preferably a complete package with camera, lens and back. Let me know if you have something you want to part with.

    Thanks,
    Trond

    Mamiya Universal with 65mm, 100mm 2.8, 127mm, two 6x9 backs, polaroid back extension tubes and a ground glass screen. I am, I must admit, very exited! Can't wait to run some film through it.

    You've had your Mamiya Universal some weeks now; how do you like it? Howard

    I just saw your post.

    I have been using the camera mostly hand held, which works well. The camera system is well designed and built, although the lack of interlocks between shutter and back has taken some time to get used to.

    The 100mm 2.8 is fantastic, and the 65mm is very good too. The backs are well designed, and much better than the Graflex 6x9 backs.
