    Compatibility of Mamiya RB-SD with prism finder

    Can someone please tell me if Mamiya RB-SD can take the older style prism or does it only take Model-2? I am only interested in non-metering kind.

    I looked through literature but it is not clear which way it goes.

    According to http://rb67.helluin.org/accessories/, "any finder will work with any body".
    And the sign said, "long haired freaky people need not apply"

    The Reznitsky chart may help: http://www.reznitsky.info/Mamiya/Comchart.htm

    OK, I got the unit and it fits and seems to work fine with my RB-SD but what exactly did I get? On front of it, it says Mamiya RB67. It is NOT the metered kind. Looking at the websites suggested above, there is no such thing as RB67 finder....

    It's the black, clunky, heavy kind with crinkled finish.

    This is the metered version - the PD prism finder: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...sm_Finder.html

    It doesn't look anything like that. What I have is far more clunky looking and triangular if you look at it straight on.

    Like the one shown in this manual from Mike Butkus' site? http://www.cameramanuals.org/mamiya_...ism_finder.pdf

    Yes. That's the one. What is this model called? Just a "Prism Finder"?

    Yes. The other, more recent finders have something added to the name, like PD Prism Finder or Finder II.
