p.1 #1 · Mamiya to Hasselblad Help


Hi all,

I'm trying to sell my Mamiya RZ67, but I would like to continue using a medium format camera. I recall using a Hasselblad in school and I liked it a bit. I just can't wrap my head around a 6x6 picture. I love my 6x7, but the Mamiya RZ67 is very heavy. I'd like something with a good name, an internal meter and light weight.

Perhaps there is a 6x7 camera I don't know about. Please let me know. Thanks.

Mamiya 7

only one that's light weight. Pentax 67ii (that specific body) is medium weight and might be worth looking into.

Thanks for the response. I've looked at Pentax 67ii and Mamiya 7ii. I'm pretty sure I used the Pentax 67 w/ a light meter. I do some more research. Thanks again.

You'd discount a Hasselblad because of a single centimeter?

And the only MF camera that I know of that is even remotely affordable with AF and internal metering is the Mamiya 645.

Then you'd have a 6x4.5, which would be what a Mamiya 645AF would give you. There was a guy selling a full setup on APUG.org the other day for like $500.

it sounds like he likes 6x7 though. and while 6x7 is only about 15% bigger than 6x6 it is more than 50% bigger than 645.

I thought it was too squarish until I tried it myself.

well, the new gf670 has one but that's a lot more money than a hasselblad or pentax 67

The only other 6x7 SLR is the Bronica GS-1, which while being lighter than the RZ, is by no means a lightweight, and shares a similar layout, the main difference being focusing via helical vs bellows. 6x7 SLRs are going to be large/heavy.
