The focusing knobs are on both sides.
Mamiya C – Lights in the Box
Pop out magnifier up close. The shutter cock is on the left side and within reach of the left thumb. The 80mm lens is roughly equivalent to a jamiya lens in the full frame format. I eventually came across the Mamiya C Stopping down the lens produces even cleaner results.
My Usage Experience While not comprehensive, I have been using the camera when I could for the past 6 months. Something to watch out for. The shutter release is on the right side and within reach of the right thumb.
At the end of the day, I could live with no parallax compensation and manual shutter cocking. While not comprehensive, I have been using the camera when I could for the past 6 months. Kelly Dun I’m a hobbyist photographer that enjoys shooting cosplay, fashion, and street photography using digital and film cameras. Probably the last consideration that pushed me towards the C was the potential of failure and repair.
The same goes for the shutter speed. There is also a pop out magnifier which is handy maimya achieve critical focus. However, I can vouch that it exists and is extremely easy to engage!
The top etched line denotes the top of the image when the bellows are extended to the x1. The whole package is solidly build and polished.
The bottom etched line similarly denotes the top of the image when at x2. The bottom portion is the most important part. How much of the bellows is revealed indicates either an x1, x1.
This camera has been a solid performer for me in multiple available light fashion shoots, mankal easily one of my favorite medium format film cameras so far. Although the camera has interchangeable lenses, I have yet to buy additional lenses.
Shooting with this camera is still a rather slow experience. In practical use, they are close enough. The camera is surprisingly ergonomic despite being a box. Maybe next time I should take it out with a tripod and cable release and give it a go.
All it takes is for an unsteady hand for a sway forward or backward to take it out of the critical focus zone. The camera itself has a good heft to it. This makes changing settings cumbersome. So at x2, you will need roughly an extra stop of light to maintain proper exposure due to extended bellows. Close up of the focusing screen. On the screen there is also two etched lines that provide framing compensation due to parallax. Close up of the bellows markings.
The marking indicate approximately how much exposure compensation is needed and which etched grid line to use as a reference to the top of the image. The aperture ring has a small nub that can be operated with the right index finger, but for the most part I usually have to look at it in order to adjust.
Being capable of producing beautiful images in such a small package is a definite advantage over my much larger and heavier Fuji GXIIIS! Focusing is performed by turning the knobs and extending the bellows. While I have free handed the camera, the neck strap does provide additional stability especially when trying to achieve critical focus. That being said, a neck strap is a must.
My Impressions of the Mamiya C220 Film Camera
All of the controls are in intuitive and easy to reach places. I found the Sekor 80mm lens to be very versatile. My only complaint about the magnifier is that I have on one occasion gotten the back flap stuck after popping out the magnifier.
Close up on the left side controls. To be honest this was another reason that I mamual up the camera. Loading film is easy as the entire back swings open to reveal the loading chamber. Thank you for reading! A bit of camera porn. I did appreciate the lighter weight, however maiya.
I can wholeheartedly recommend this camera to anyone looking for TLR camera!
