    Mamiya C220 Viewing Screen

    I have a Mamiya C220. On the viewing screen/groundglass, there are two marks etched in the glass. I'm wondering what they are for. Some sort of makeshift parallax correction?

    They are parallax adjustment marks.

    They are discussed on page 16 of the camera's manual.

    In case you don't have the manual, you can find one on Mike Butkus' site here: http://www.cameramanuals.org/mamiya_...iya_c220-1.pdf

    If you are going to use the download, I'd suggest a donation to Mr. Butkus' site.

    They also act as a guide to exposure compensation using the focus scale. See the last two images and comments at http://grahampatterson.home.comcast....c220/c220.html
    I feel, therefore I photograph.
