Welcome to Ron Herron's
Collecting Mamiya 35mm Cameras Forum!

A continuation of the original Forum that started on January 15, 2001


This Forum was created to allow discussions related to the collection, use, repair and service of vintage Mamiya 35mm Film Cameras. It's also a place to show and discuss the images we create with them, digital uses for Mamiya lens, and lots more! Join us, and share in this great hobby! Guests are welcome to visit and view all discussions. However, in order to post a comment or picture you need to register as a Forum Member (it's free).

Your IP address will be checked for spamming prior to approval, but once registered, you'll be able to post responses to any topic, or start a new thread (links for starting a new thread are in each topic area).

When you post your pictures taken with 35mm Mamiya equipment (or lenses), please make them 72-100 dpi jpeg or gif images, and no more than 800 pixels wide, so no one has to scroll to see them (and so any of our friends still with slow connections don't need to go out for coffee while they wait for things to load)!

Thanks for your interest. I was unable to release the camera mount from the bellows as you suggested nor was I able to locate a P-adapter (though one was part of a larger package being sold on ebay) before I left Florida for the EU for a few months. You're right about the Sinar rig being massive but mounting the Sony a900 was made easier when I was able to mount it to a Sinar lens board using a simple T-mount and an "M48 to M42 48mm - 42mm male-to-male coupling Ring Adapter for Filters" found on ebay (after grinding a few mm off the hole in the board) as a retaining ring. I'm leaning towards using a 24MP Sony aps-c sensor camera with Live View as the throat of the FF camera and adapter create slight vignetting. I'll be back in Florida in October at which time I'll reassess.


This is a slow-motion conversation, so I hope you don't mind if I take my time with each response. 8^)

After a little more research, I have learned that the macro rail which I own is representative of later versions. Please forgive my ignorance. Although I have not had one literally in my hands, it appears that earlier versions had cast metal standards (I assume aluminium), which is quite different from the extruded metal with modular fittings like the one which I own that became available after the introduction of the M645.

There is a vendor on ebay going by the name of "neatphoto" who sells printed copies of user manuals and service guides or is that user guides and service manuals? and there is a remarkably detailed printed version available. The same vendor can also be found as photobooksonline. (Please search for "#90217 - Mamiya NC-1000".)

That's the good news. The bad news is that replacement parts are almost impossible to find.

What happened?

Enquiring minds want to know. smiley

Seeing as you are already familiar with a Sinar rig, your eyes might have glazed over for the rest of what I had written. I wouldn't blame you, since what you already have is much more flexible, albeit massive.

If you haven't discovered it yet, there was indeed someone very interested in this.

Thanks for your suggestions. I'm currently using a Sinar rig but I thought a slightly smaller format would be less cumbersome for shooting negs with digital camera. I'd hate to have to take a grinder to this little jewel. One thing I really like about it is the film copying unit with the flip back diffuser that has rise/fall. It appears that this bellows set is identical to the Contax version which sells for $$$ on ebay. I'll take your suggestion and head over to the Fotodiox site.


I'm glad I could help.

Just to be clear, I was suggesting grinding out the adapter, not the original part. =^0
