An MF Film Format Question
I have an Mamiya RB67 camera, and use it just every so often. It's my first film camera. I also shoot 4x5 as well.
With regard to my RB camera and the film back, do they have different film backs for it? I don't mean 120 -vs- 220. My current 120 back, say's 645 on it. Are there larger format sizes that will accommodate my RB? Does that make the image size larger as well?
Sorry for the newb question, but I've never really shot a lot of film.
That is why it is called RB67.
Pliftz: You didn't say if your camera is a Pro or Pro S model, (or Pro SD) but if yours is just the Pro, all the other model backs will fit it but the others have interlocks. They will not work on the Pro, but if you have a Pro S or SD, you should try to get the proper backs. You will pay more for the Pro S back, but since the interlocks won't work with it, you would just be wasting money. The interlocks prevent certain things like not tripping the shutter if the film is not wound, and the back not straight or the dark slide being in place and probably a few I forgot. The reason the RB67 is called that is because of its 'revolving back' and the fact that it will take 6X7 pictures. You can probably sell the 645 and pick up a 6X7. You can also put a polaroid back on that camera, but I suppose you know that. Have fun. Ric.
