The Mamiya RZ67 Pro IID is the natural evolution of the legendary RZ Pro II, the industry standard used by many of today’s most renowned photographers and artists because of its large 6x7cm ideal format negative size, over four and a half times larger than 35mm. The use of digital backs, such as the Mamiya ZD Back or others, is easy through direct, digital communication with the camera body.

Also notable are the RZ’s ultra-high performance lenses, and multi-format versatility. Distinctive features include a convenient revolving back, bellows focusing, large, bright viewfinder, and extensive system of accessories.

All Mamiya Film Magazines feature handy dark slide storage pockets for added safety and convenience on location.

Electronic Interface with Auto Indexing For all Lenses and Film Magazines
Each RZ film magazine and Polaroid Back features an auto-indexing ISO film speed dial, integrating information with the optional RZII AE Matrix Metering Prism Finder. Each RZ Series lens also keys in maximum aperture for total exposure interface information. Fast and foolproof operation eliminates the need to manually set film speed and maximum aperture when changing lenses or magazines.

Interchangeable Focusing Screens
Select from eight factory designed bright focusing screens, including grid screens for product photography or architecture, precision microprism, or MamiyaпїЅs exclusive vertical split image screen designed specifically for fashion and portraiture.

AE Matrix Metering and Auto Fill Flash Capability
MamiyaпїЅs optional RZII AE Matrix Metering Prism Finder features dual mode full manual or aperture priority automatic shutter with choice of spot, average or MamiyaпїЅs own A/S matrix metering pattern. The A/S matrix mode reads the brightness contrast range of the entire scene, and calculates a spot, average or integrated exposure in either manual or auto operation. In manual mode, a fast and simple readout features green, orange and red LEDs with shutter speed and metering mode readout. In auto operation, the shutter speeds are automatically selected with 1/6 step accuracy, ideal for chrome films.
Because each RZ Series lens features auto leaf shutters, in AE mode, once the aperture is set for correct flash exposure, the lensпїЅ shutter speed is automatically set for optimum daylight fill flash exposure with any flash system, using single or multiple heads. The AE Prism quickly interchanges with the standard folding waist level focusing hood with flip-up magnifier, or the non-metering Prism Finder II.

All accessories for the RZ Pro IID (except the RZ adapter for the Mamiya ZD digital back) are compatible with the RZ Pro II.

Accessories

Attached to any of the RZ or RB prism finders, it assures enhanced precision focusing by magnifying the central portion of the screen. After focusing, it can be raised to confirm overall composition.

Particularly useful for critical focusing with wide angle, telephoto and variable soft focus lenses, as well as for copy work and macro photography. Built-in -6 to +4 diopter correction.
