    Does such a camera exist in MF....?

    I'd like to find a camera that will let me make two or more exposures on the same negative without removing my eye from the finder. That is, not something that requires me to throw a tiny switch for each and every exposure, something that I can say "expose this frame" and go click, click, click. Mamiya 7? Leaf-shutter 'blad? Kiev?

    Anyone? Thanks!

    Bronica. I once forgot to switch the double-exposure-prevention back on, and shot 20 exposures on the same frame before I realised I should have run out of film a while back... That was an ETRS, I think the others will be the same.

    My Mamiya 645 super does this. It has a simple double exposure switch which remains on until you turn it back off. With the winder you will not need to remove it from your eye, if you are winding it by hand, that might be a different story, but theoretically, you could do it.

    Not the Mamiya 7, but perhaps the Mamiya 7 II?

    The Bronica SQ-A a multiple-exposure lever that keeps its setting exposure after exposure.

    The Mamiya Press (Super 23, Universal), or any camera that doesn't have the shutter coupled to the film wind.

    What you are looking for is a self cocking shutter. I have such a shutter on a LF copy camera. You can keep hitting the button as many times as you like and it will fire each time.

    Off hand I don't know any MF cameras that do that without manually winding/cocking the shutter between shots.... ummmm I'll have to check this out.
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    What Helen said--Any press camera like a 23 Graphic or Linhof Tech 23 or any 4x5" camera with a rollfilm back. If it has a self-cocking shutter, all the better.

    My Lubitel will expose as many as you like, over and over until you are blue in the face... especially when then you notice you forgot to wind the film
    But as far as doing it on purpose - it can obviously be done also. I understand its not a very "serious" camera with many flaws, but it will accomodate your need for very little money.

    The Bronica C (and I happen to be selling one *cough, cough*) does this, too. You just set it to double exposure and you can keep making shots on the same frame--you just have to recock the shutter. The Rolleicord (IIIa, don't knkow about the others) does this, too--just keep cocking and firing the shutter and don't advance the film.

    How about a Holga, it will do it, too
