    Lithium Batteries for Mamiya RZ?

    Anyone know if I use lithium batteries in a RZ Pro IID? Camera came without a manual and the manual @ Butkus does not mention lithium batteries.

    You're welcome. They have the full PDF manuals there too. I'm glad to have them for my used RB67.

    I've used them with the 28L lithium before and it seemed to work fine.

    I use the 4LR44 battery from eBay. I buy the ones for doggie shock collars. Way cheaper than the lithium ones. Don't know of the cheap batteries last as long though, but good enough for me.

    When the 28L that was in my RZ started blinking in the prism, I replaced it with the $2.97 4LR44 from Walmart.

    It doesn't say why but Mamiya USA's own web page says not to for some reason.

    Here's Bronica's take on lithiums in MF cameras.

    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
