    My first MF was a Mamiya C33, great camera, heavy but good. I still have it but don't ever use it anymore.

    Hi, Frank,
    After you have taken a load of blank flash shots, because the lens synch for flash is at the wrong speed, I think you will appreciate why it's stuck down I would advise you to ensure you do the same with all your lenses,this recommendation comes as you can imagine from experiences too painful to recount. I have used Mamiya C330F gear for about twenty years, and once you've bought a truss to carry the outfit, and if you're not too knackered when you get to the the location by the weight, it's a excellent professional quality system capable of impressive photo-technical quality that after all this time sometimes still astounds me. Try shooting the same filmstock with your 35mm camera and your Mamiya, and compare the results.

    I hope you get as much pleasure from it as I have mine

    Best wishes Bentley.

    As promised, I've put my first shot with The Brick in the Standard Gallery, along with another from that roll.

    Thanks again,

    Frank

My arms got so tired trying to turn it the right way, focus and hold the camera still, it took me 5 tries to get the image. Don't even ask about trying to level the image!

    Next time I'll just climb a tree.

    Welcome

    Hi and welcome to the club! My first MF was a Mamiya 645 1000s and now I have added another 1000s, a RB 67 and finally a Bronica Etrsi.

    I also have a Fuji S7000z and sevearl 35mm cameras that get minimum usage now.

    Nice one Frank! Welcome to the (Mamiya C) club. The lenses are good, well most of them anyway!
