    Distance scale for Mamiya TLR 105mm DS

    Does anyone know if it's possible to find somewhere extra distance scales for the 105mm f3.5 DS to use on the C330?

    Only the C330s come built-in with the proper scale, and I have an older model calibrated for the back focus of the pre-DS lens.

    Or if anyone could draw it 1:1 on a sheet of paper, it would be fine. I'd just like to mark my camera for infinity focus and a few other points.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    The C330 series uses a rod with distance scales on it. It is supposed to be user-exchangable (if you can find the right version (metres/feet and focal length set)). You might try a scale on the lensboard reading from the front of the camera. The earlier versions worked that way. Just focus the camera on items at infinity, 20 feet, 10 feet, 3 feet, or whatever, and mark the label. Try this link and look at the C220 left side picture. I'm suggesting a linear scale like the exposure compensation scale at the bottom of this picture.

    To be honest, I rarely if ever use distance scales. Exposure compensation and parallax indication, sometimes.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    My C330 Pro (not Pro F or Pro S) has the scale marked for the 105mm D and DS (same scale).

    I am not the original owner, so it's possible it was replaced with a new version at some point in time.

    Yes, I was scouring high and low to find a replacement scale, but I don't think too many people ever bought them.

    Wanna trade? Unless you're using the 105mm DS, of course.
