    Can someone give me a quick rundown of the differences between the C220 and the C330? I appreciate it

    I have a C220 and understand that the C330 self-cocks with the film advance, and that there is a moving indicator under the focusing screen to indicate parallax. Furthermore, the C330 has the option of interchangeable focusing screens.

    Other than that, the lenses are all interchangeable and they accomplish the same thing.

    C220 : fixed screen with a couple of parallax/exposure correction marks. Knob wind with fold out crank. Manual shutter cocking on all lenses. Single frame-mount shutter release, with cable release. Focus scale and parallax/exposure correction by plates on the left side of the bellows. Some variations without a cold flash shoe.

    C330: interchangable screens with scale for parallax/exposure correction. Moving parallax/exposure indicator in the finder (remember to 'program' the focal length). Auto shutter cocking on most lenses. Crank advance and shutter cocking. Frame shutter release and 'chin' release. The 'chin' release has the cable release socket. Focus scale uses a revolving rod. Has a cold flash shoe.

    If you really need details, http://www.btinternet.com/~g.a.patte...faq/m_faq.html and the photopages at http://www.btinternet.com/~g.a.patterson/

    There are some cosmetic differences and the internal mechanisms have differences too.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    220s have been selling crazy cheap on Ebay. It's like you buy an 80mm lens and the camera is thrown in free.

    330s are more expensive but still a bargain. Great way to shoot 6x6.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    Thanks for the info, ya'll!

    When using my old Graflex, I like that I can look down into the waist level finder and shoot - no one really knows I'm taking a picture, they just think I'm fiddling with my camera. But it's a fixed lens TLR and so not much flexibility there. I'm thinking of doing street photography with one of these Mamiyas; Viable or no?

    The C220 weighs the least of any of the Mamiya TLR's. That's important to me.

    I'll just add that since all of these are years old, condition is more important than model!

    Just to add to Graham's post, there are some C220s with a cold shoe; mine has one.

    Okay, I've heard of a hot shoe but a cold shoe? What's that?

    Which reminds of another question: I will mostly use the TLR in natural light situations but what about studio strobe? Is there a pc link on those bad boys?
