Mamiya 645 older models

Discussion in 'Medium Format' started by dominique_ferraton, Jun 7, 2005.

  1. Hello,
    I'm having a hard time finding the specs for the different 645
    models... specifically, i'm wondering if the Super, M645 and 1000 all
    have multiple exposure capability? And do all the older models have
    electronic shutters? Is there any one of them that would be better
    for long exposures? And is their weight relatively the same?
    Thanks!
     
  2. Here is a good website that compares the medium format single lens reflex cameras from various manufacturers. It is in German, though, but perhaps some technical specs will be understandable for you.
    All Mamiya M645 models have electronically controlled shutters. As far as I know, the models you mentioned weight approximately the same and have all multiple exposure capability. The latest Mamiya cameras with mechanical shutters are the RB67 and the TLR models (C220/C330). But those are completey different beasts from the tiny 6x4.5 cameras, of course.
     
  3. you can find informations about Mamiya 645 and other MF cameras here
    its in german but easy to understand
     
  4. he was quicker^^
     
  5. If you go to the Mamiya.com web site, you can down load the manuals for the Super and the 1000S - look for Downloads (PDF FILES) on the left side of this web page. Good luck!
     
  6. Sorry, that should be the right side of their web page.
     
  7. Thanks everyone!
     
  8. Another question along the same lines - the 1000s manual describes an alternative method for doing time exposures : taking out the battery then releasing the shutter, which stays open... it this true of the earlier m645 also, and of the other models?
    thanks.
     
  9. Having owned Mamiya 645 J, 1000S and 645 Pro models I can tell you that they all had multi exposure capability. I would bet a month's salary the other models (especially later models)also have it.
