data collection for Mamiya 645 system overview
Hello all around,
I'm a new one here :p
I come from the digital photography but I want to go back into analog medium format to experience the "slow photography" a bit more. Some time ago I had the possibility to get a Mamiya 645ProTL including some lenses and other stuff. Now including my own darkroom at home I can really start. But of course I wanted to get some more information about my new camera and the system around including lenses, back and all that other accesoires. But I found no good source on the internet where everything is summed up nicely. Just bits and pieces of information floating around and scattered everywhere.
So that's why I just started to make my own data collection to built up a database about all the system components, their properties and compatibilities. Until now everything is written down in a pdf file you can find attached to this post. Lateron I will put that as a part of my private homepage.
Maybe some of you Mamiya 645 aces out there can help me a little bit by having a look on my collection to get rid of mistakes, add forgotten stuff or removing wrong parts. That would be very helpful. Please just post comments here ore write a PN or e-mail.
I will always add the newest version of this collection as soon as I have one.
Status now (2010/11/16) is:
- comparison table of all MF bodies
- comparison tables of MF and AF lenses with data
- table of compatibility of all the different viewfinder systems
- comparison of focal length between different systems (35mm, 645, 6x6, ...)
I hope this collection can help Mamiya 645 users to better understand this system and newcomers to know what they need.
