Mamiya 7 II

Mamiya 7 II

The Mamiya 7 II is a medium format 6x7cm rangefinder camera with interchangeable leaf shutter lenses. It is "The Ultimate 6x7 Rangefinder", virtually no bigger than the top 35mm SLRs. Quiet, compact and lightweight, the Mamiya 7 II has a built-in Aperture Priority A/E meter with fully manual exposure capability. This allows one to create incredibly detailed 6x7cm "Ideal Format" images with ease. A panoramic adapter accessory can be used for true 24x65mm panoramic images. The precision rangefinder is ideal for quick, accurate focusing, particularly in low light situations.

The Mamiya 7 II offers double exposure capability and choice of black or champagne finish with a restyling over the original Mamiya 7 model. It uses all Mamiya 7 lenses including the latest 50mm f/4.5 superwide lens with optical finder and 210mm f/8 with optical finder.

The Mamiya 7 II. The World’s Quietest, Light and Compact 6x7

Mamiya Rangefinder Cameras

Following a tradition of over 50 years, Mamiya offers fast handling, compact
medium format rangefinder cameras, now with interchangeable state-of-the-art
optics and built-in metering. Rangefinder cameras have always been the classic
choice of photojournalists and travel photographers who demand a near silent,
light weight, fast handling camera that shows continuous, unobstructed viewing
of the subject and the area around it.

Mamiya 7 II - The ultimate 6x7 rangefinder

At last, photographers have the creative freedom to express themselves with incredibly
detailed, ideal format 6x7cm images or 24x65 panoramic format, using an elegant,
silent, fast, versatile and lightweight rangefinder camera that sports six
ultra-high performance lenses from 210mm telephoto to 43mm superwide.

Rangefinder Design
The camera design offers fast, easy and accurate precision rangefinder focusing, ideal even in low light situations. Fully coupled, with auto indexed and parallax corrected frame lines for four state-of-the-art lenses that are the pinnacle of modern optical design. The
Mamiya 7 II’s rangefinder design also eliminates noise and vibration of typical SLR mirror movement, and coupled with Mamiya’s own silent and precise electromagnetic shutter, allows for quiet and unobtrusive work in any situation. You see the subject at the moment of exposure - without missing a heartbeat. Ideal for photojournalists and all candid photography.

6x7cm - The Ideal Format
The 6x7cm format is nearly 5 times larger than ordinary 35mm format. 6x7 is called the ideal format because it enlarges to standard 8x10" paper size with almost no cropping, thereby using virtually the entire image area. Professionals will find art directors and
clients appreciate the large, detailed 6x7cm format over others.

35mm Panoramic Adapter Kit
The Mamiya 7 II are designed to take 35mm film cassettes when the optional panoramic kit is inserted. It yields spectacular 24x65mm images, an aspect ratio of 1:2.7. The optional 35mm panoramic kit consists of a panoramic film mask, a cassette holder, film take-up spool and rewind crank set. It is easy to attach and remove.

Automatic and Manual Control Metering
The Mamiya 7 II also have convenient and accurate built-in aperture priority AE (with 1/6 step increments), or completely manual metering with LED readouts. In both modes, +/-2 exposure compensation in 1/3 steps is possible. The AE system is able to provide excellent exposures for virtually any lighting situation, even with high contrast subjects. An AE lock is provided to give the photographer final exposure control. All shutter speeds can also be set manually on the camera’s shutter speed dial. In this mode the exposure meter can still be utilized by observing the LED readouts along the bottom edge of the viewfinder. Exposure compensation from +2 to -2 EV gives additional manual control to adjust for filters or to obtain certain desired effects.

Dark Slide" Curtain for Changing Lenses
The built-in curtain, activated by a control on the bottom of the camera, permits lens change without fogging film. It locks if the lens is not securely attached to the body.

Polaroid Capability
Aftermarket manufacturers offer sophisticated, fiber optic plate Polaroid backs which can be installed in place of the roll film back door on the Mamiya 7 II and cameras by the photographer. Most photographers using this capability regularly find that dedicating a second body to the Polaroid back is the best method of operation, as the back door cannot be removed in mid-roll.
