    Test firing Mamiya RZ67 without film

    I've looked all over for info but I can't find anything. I'm probably missing something simple, but I can't figure out how to get it to fire without film loaded. I just get the orange light.

    Thanks!

    Isn't there a multi exposure button on the back? If there is engage it and that should be it (oh and remember to remove the darks slide).

    Kind Regards

    The multi exposure control is what you need. Slide the lever on the right side to the M position, if my memory serves me right.

    Thanks loman and L Gebhardt. I thought I tried the multiple exposure, but I guess not. That was the ticket.

    Remove dark slide (or back), put it into "M" and fire away, works with mine =)

    Also, get the manual from butkus.org. It'll tell you these tricks.
