    MAMIYA RESOURCE BOOK

    All:

    This is my first post here and it certainly seems like APUG is what I've been looking for. I am really keen on moving up to medium format, learning black and white and doing my part to keep digital at bay.

    I have just about decided to get into the market for a medium format camera. A used Mamiya seems to be a safe bet although I have not made a final decision.

    Can nayone offer a suggestion on a reference book for the various Mamiya medium format models past and current? If such a reference exists that provides the Mamiya INFO along with other medium format makes that would be a plus.

    I'm sure I will be back to ask for more advice. Thanks to all.

    Welcome to the forum. I've lived with most of Mamiya's output over the years, currently I'm using an RB67, having just sold a 6x6 TLR. I can vouch for their build quality, but I've never come across a book dealing specifically with the range.
    Regards Dave.

    When I began my equipment education, I found the book entitled Medium Format Cameras by Peter Williams to be very helpful, and I still reference it today. I think Amazon has them for about $14.00. All of the Mamiya cameras are covered as are most other models.

    You might look for a used copy of, or interlibrary loan, a copy of "Hove Pro-Guide" Mamiya (by Bob Shell).

    Your correct in that a used Mamiya seems to be a safe bet for medium format. But since a used Mamiya could be a TLR, SLR, Press, or conceivably even RF, you will need to determine what form(s) of medium format camera you prefer.

    And of course, no need to limit yourself to one.

    Try Bob Shell's "Mamiya medium format systems Pro-guide" (Hove Foto books). My copy dates to 1992 and doesn't have the 7 and 7II, but there may be a later edition.

    Just to note, I can't make the Mamiya site referenced above work in Firefox or Opera. There are lots of links in the sidebar to the left that don't seem to show up in anything but IE.
