Mamiya RB67 - digital back??

  1. Can the RB67 take a digital back?? There are so many for sale at a
    good price, it is a pity if it cannot be used for digital.
     
  2. Ben, look at this. I really don't see the point of a 6 megapixel back on a MF camera though. And, I have no idea how it would work on the non-electronic RB. And, that's freaking expensive.
     
  3. Mamiya has compabatibility sheets for most of their cameras and plethoras of digital backs on their website. I do not have direct link but it's not difficult to find.
     
  4. $15,900! On the other hand, just think of how much you'll save on film and processing. Probably could pay for itself in no time at all.
     
  5. on the other hand, buy the new canon 20d and save yourself $13000. and still use your rb for film.
     
  6. That's exactly what I will end up doing - using RB especially for B&W, and 20d for outdoor and color photography.

    The digital backs are still too expensive, perhaps one day the price will come down to being more reasonable for amateur use.

    Thanks for all the advice.
     
  7. you could just scan negatives.
     
  8. Please see the press release at the Mamiya website: http://www.mamiya.com/news-events-press-releases-new-mamiya-zd-digital-back-adapter-for-rb67-pro-spro-sd.html

    At an expense of more than $5000, I woudl recommend you just scan your films. :)>)
