RZ67 rotating back

  1. Sorry if this question may seem dumb, but I am not fully understanding this feature of the RZ67. ...or
    maybe I know more than I think.

    Is this correct? The film back can be turned independantly of the camera body in order to shoot either
    in landscape or portrait orientation while still holding the body in the "normal" position.

    That would be a TERRIFIC feature, and one more thing that makes me want this camera even more.

    One more question. What about the waist level and / or eye level viewfinders. Do the views change to
    match the rotating back? In other words, if the back is rotated to the portriat position, will the image in
    the viewfinder also show the new portrait orientation?

    Thanks everyone.

  2. Yes.

    The finder has masking blades that, when you rotate the back, pop into position to change the aspect ratio in the finder from landscape to portrait.
     
  3. Thanks Jerry.
