67cm-The Ideal Format
67 is called the ideal format because it enlarges to the standard 8 10" paper size without cropping thus utilizing the entire image area. The 67 format of the RZ67 Professional
image size is 5669.5mm) is
Rack & Pinion Bellows Focusing
A precise plane of focus is, of course, at the heart of professional photography. Mamiya knows accurate focusing demands unparallelled mechanical precision, which is why all Mamiya 67 format camera have always employed rack & pinion bellows focusing systems. With a 46mm lens rack, the bellows assures pinpoint focusing over the widest possible range. The standard 110mm lens, for example , can focus down to a distance as close as 31.3cm, while the wide-angle 65mm lens focuses to 8.5cm and the tele lens 180mm to 82.9cm.
The crispness of results at minimum focusing distance is a hallmark of the RZ67 Professional D
about 5 larger than a 35mm
frame and offers far superior image quality for enlargements or full page magazine reproductions. 67 transparencies can be viewed on a light table without magnifiers. Having the choice between a 35mm or 67 slide of the same subject, an art director or editor will almost always choose the latter.
Electronic Flash Synchronization
Mamiya RZ67 Professional D lenses are mounted in #1 electronic leaf shutters with shutter speeds from 8 to 1/400sec. and can be flash synchronized at all shutter speeds. Perfectly balanced flash and ambient fill flash exposure can be controlled for natural well exposed results.
Form Follows Function
A professional camera should become an extension of the photographer's hands, so that its operation is almost instinctive, leaving his/her mind free to concentrate on the subject and giving creativity free rein. This was the aim of Mamiya's design engineers when they created the full-featured RZ67 Professional D.
With the most frequently used action controls placed on the right side of the camera body, the functions of the film transport/shutter cocking lever, focusing knob and shutter release button, feel like a natural fit to your hands and make hand holding of the camera and fast operation very convenient. Attaching the accessory L-Grip, with its built-in electronic shutter release, further enhances this option. The dimpled, non slip rubberized covering makes the camera comfortable and secure to hold.
Large Focusing Knob with Additional Fine Focus Feature.
Strategically placed next to the shutter cocking/film transport lever, the large, smooth functioning focusing knob, with its supplementary fine focus collar, offers both fast action focus and precision focus. This is especially useful with wide angle lenses because of their great depth-of-field and telephoto lenses which require critical distance setting.
Mechanical Safetylocks; Visual and Audible Warning Signals.
Realizing that the professional photographer must frequently work under pressure, the RZ67 Professional D incorporates many failsafe the dark slide is in place. Other Safetylocks control the proper setting of the camera's speed dial. Glowing or flashing LEDs, visible in the viewfinder and/or audible electronic sounds inform the photographer of all incorrect camera control settings and are explained in the instruction manual.

Z90mm f/3.5W , Z110mm f/2.8W
This 37mm fisheye lens provides a 180-degree field-of-view for unique perspective. The super wide-angle Z50mm f/4.5W lens allows detailed resolution of even peripheral elements. The M50mm ULD f/4.5L-A is a high-performance lens that employs ultra-low dispersion and anomalous dispersion glass to achieve an extremely small amount of chromatic aberration. Due to the use of a floating-element system, clear and uniform images can be obtained edge-to-edge in the 67 image area. The M65mm also employs a floating-element design and ultra-low dispersion glass to optimize color correction, eliminating ghost images and fully corrects optical distortion.
The 90mm is a retrofocus design providing excellent, even contrast all the way to the periphery of the frame as well as high resolution. The 110mm is a Gauss design to offer extra brightness at a maximum aperture of f/2.8, full correction of optical distortion and fine resolution.

Macro M140mmf/4.5 M/L-A
The 150mm and 180mm lenses display high image quality and natural coloring throughout the whole picture even after opening up the aperture due to an increase in the amount of peripheral light. The 180mm lens is a Tessar type. The 250mm lens can achieve high image quality and natural coloring, as in the case of the 150mm and 180mm lenses, through the suppression of chromatic aberration and an increase in the amount of peripheral light.
The Macro M140mm lens is a Gauss-type lens. Through the adoption of a floating mechanism and maximum correction of various aberrations, clear high resolving power has been enabled from the center of the picture to its periphery. Naturally, shooting from a close distance up to infinity is possible and users can enjoy taking realistic portrayals with image ratios up to 1:1 through the use of an Extension Tubes.

When photographing with the Zoom Z100~200mm lens at 3m~, use the lens helicoid for focusing. When taking close-up within 3m, set the helicoid at and extend the body bellows for focusing. Data on the minimum focusing distance, minimum magnification and area covered only this lens denote those when the helicoid is at the infinity position and the bellows are most extended.
Zoom Z100-200mm f/5.2W
The 100-200mm zoom lens is the first zoom lens for a 67-format camera. It is always possible to achieve optimum framing from a distance of infinity to close range, even when there are constraints on the distance between subjects. Naturally, portrait shooting is possible and this lens is suitable for various kinds of photography. Moreover, as optical performance approaches the level of a single focus lens, excellent portrayal capability can be achieved.

Vari-Soft focus lens
M180mm f/4 D/L
The M180mm Variable Soft Focus (VSF) lens presents the most desirable focal length for the portrait photographer. It is supplied with three different diffusion discs which are inserted in the lens barrel. The overall level of softness (or sharpness) is controlled by the diaphragm opening, choice of disc, and whether or not a disc is used at all. It can produce images of a certain ethercal beauty which cannot be obtained by any other means, hides blemishes and saves retouching costs. When stopped down to f/8 or smaller apertures, it produces sharp images like a normal lens.
The Shift 75mm lens provides versatile perspective control to the photographer to correct converging parallel elements within the image, or, conversely, to exaggerate perspective shifts to achieve special effects. It offers a maximum 20mm shift in either vertical or horizonal orientation, 17mm at angular orientation, and can be rotated through 360 degrees in 10-degree click stops.

Special Features of the Mamiya RZ67 PRO II
1. The Ideal Format
The 6x7 cm format is called the ideal format because it enlarges to the standard 8x10" paper size without cropping, thus utilizing the entire image area. The 6x7 format of the RZ PRO II (actual image size is 56x69.5mm) is almost 5x larger than a 35mm frame and offers far superior image quality for enlargement or full page magazine reproduction. 6x7 transparencies can be viewed on the light table without magnifiers.
3. Rack and Pinion Bellows Focusing
Bellows focusing, another great advantage, permits precise focusing with the left or right hand and also features a focus lock lever. The RZ PRO II has an additional micro focus knob for precise fine focusing. The camera bellows eliminate the extra costs of equipping each lens with a helical focusing mount and permits close-up photography without costly attachments. (The closest focusing distance of the 110mm lens is 31.3cm, the 65mm wide angle lens 8.5cm and the 180mm is 84.5cm).
2. Mamiya Revolving Back with Automatic
With a flip of the wrist, the Revolving Back-a Mamiya exclusive among 6x7 SLRs-can be rotated for horizontal or vertical format without changing the optical axis. At the same time it also automatically changes the masking frame in the finder to match the format. Other cameras require removing and reattaching film holders when changing format or having to turn the camera on its side which complicates viewing and operation.
Because the Mamiya RZ67 Pro-II does not function properly without a battery, be sure to load one into the Battery Chamber before attempting to use the camera. The camera uses one of either of the following batteries: 4LR44 (6V alkaline manganese battery) 4SR44 (6V silver oxide battery) 1. Pull the finger catch on the Battery Chamber Cover in the direction of the arrowhead to open it.
2. Insert the battery into the chamber taking care to match the + - poles of the battery with those shown in the diagram found in the chamber: match the - pole first. Future extraction and replacement of the battery will be simplified if the Battery Removal Ribbon is placed under and over the battery. Be careful though not to block the + - poles with the ribbon.
Attaching / Removing Lenses
Attaching Lenses Attaching the Lens
Before attaching a lens to the camera body, the mirror in the body must be set in the down position and the shutter of the lens cocked.
Cocking the Lens Shutter
1. Remove the Rear Lens Cap by rotating the bayonet ring clockwise. 2. If the lens shutter is not cocked, firmly rotate the Shutter Cocking Pins as far as they will go to the red dot A. Moving the Shutter Cocking Pins only as far as the green dot will result in incomplete shutter cocking. Be sure to rotate them as far as the red dot. Whenever a lens is removed from the camera body, it is already cocked.
Setting the Mirror
1. Remove the Body Cap from the camera. 2. Make sure the mirror is set (lowered). If the mirror is in the up position, lower it by pushing the Cocking Lever as far as it will go toward the front of the camera body.
1. With the front of the lens facing you, rotate the Bayonet Ring counterclockwise as far as it will go (the white dot on the Bayonet Ring will be aligned with the central index on the lens mount). 2. Seat the lens on the camera body with the red index line on the lens mount facing the red alignment dot of the camera body. Next, rotate the Bayonet Ring of the lens firmly in a clockwise direction, securing the lens to the camera body.
Removing the Lens
1. Push the Cocking Lever of the camera body completely down, which will set the mirror and cock the lens shutter. 2. Rotate the Bayonet Ring of the lens counterclockwise as far as it will go (the white dot on Bayonet Ring will align with central red index line of lens) and remove the lens. If you try to rotate the Bayonet Ring counterclockwise without first depressing the Cocking Lever of the camera body, the movement of the ring will be blocked, making it impossible to remove the lens. This safety feature assures that the mirror must always be lowered whenever the lens is removed, thereby assisting the Light Baffle in shielding the film from light.
To release the shutter on a lens which has been removed from the camera body, rotate the shutter cocking pins B clockwise as far as they will go, while depressing the shutter lock pin A.
CAUTION: When attaching/removing the lens, be sure not to rest the camera on its back unless either a roll film holder or the back protective cover is attached. This is necessary to prevent damage to its various spring loaded function pins.
Using the Waist-Level Finder
Raising the Finder Raising the Magnifier Lowering the Magnifier
Merely lift the back of the Finder until it opens completely.
Slide the Magnifier Release slightly to the left and the Magnifier will pop up into position.
Gently push the base plate of the Magnifier all the way down until it locks in place.
Folding the Finder
Removing/Attaching the Finder
After lowering the Magnifier, gently squeeze the right and left panels of the finder together while closing it.
Removing the Finder
To remove the Finder, push the right and left release buttons towards the rear of the Finder and while holding them in, lift the front of the Finder. These release buttons are equipped with a safety mechanism so that they cannot be removed merely by pushing them from the right or left side.
Attaching the Finder
To attach the Finder, slide the Finder Catches into the groove of the camera body, and while holding in both Finder Release Buttons, seat the front of the finder on the camera body. The finder will lock in place after releasing pressure from on the Release Buttons.
Interchanging the Focusing Screen
Interchanging the Magnifier Removing the Focusing Screen
To remove the Magnifier, gently squeeze the magnifier frame with the sides of the finder and rotate the Magnifier counterclockwise. To attach the Magnifier, align the white dot on the Magnifier frame, and rotate the Magnifier clockwise. The Magnifier is interchangeable. In addition to the standard (-1.5 diopter) lens, +1, 0, -1, -2 and -3 diopter lenses are also available. Please note that plus lenses are for far-sighted and minus lenses are for near-sighted individuals.
There are seven instantly interchangeable focusing screens to choose from, each designed for specific applications.
Removing a Focusing Screen
After removing the focusing hood, lift up and remove the screen by grasping the lug on the right-hand side (as viewed from the back of the camera). To replace a screen, gently lower the left-hand side of the screen (as seen from the camera back), followed by the right-hand side, and lightly snap screen into place. CAUTION When removing screens, exercise care not to touch the vertical and horizontal format viewfinder masks.
Releasing the Shutter
It is best to become acquainted with the method of releasing the shutter before using film in the camera. 1. Rotate the Release Button Collar until the white dot on it is aligned with the one immediately below (on the Collar Stop Lever). 2. Remove the Dark Slide. 3. Set the R-M Lever to the "M" (multiple exposure) position. 4. Set the shutter speed dial to any speed except "AEF" and "RBL". 5. Push the Cocking Lever all the way down. 6. Press the Shutter Release Button.
* The first 4 steps can be done in any order. After you are thoroughly familiar with the above steps, return the RM Lever to its normal setting (the center position).
Using the Release Button Collar
1. For normal operation, align the white square B on the Release Button Collar A with the white dot on the lever below B. When this is done, the Shutter Release functions electromagnetically and the various safety mechanisms operate electrically. 2. When the camera is not in use, lock the Shutter Release Button. This is done by aligning the white dot of the Release Button Collar with the red dot C on the camera body. By locking the Shutter Release Button, you not only prevent unintentional exposure of film, but also prevent accidental battery depletion caused by pressure on the Release Button. For this reason, be sure to lock the Release Button when carrying the camera in a bag.
The R-M Lever
The Normal Position (J)
For normal operation of the camera, the R-M Lever should be kept in the center position, aligned with the index mark. Setting the lever to this position activates the double exposure prevention mechanism so that photo after photo can be taken without fear of accidental double exposures.
Multiple Exposure Position
When desiring to make multiple exposures, set the R-M Lever to the 'M' position. When this is done, pushing down on the Cocking Lever will cock the lens shutter, but will not advance the film. Upon completion of the multiple exposure, do not forget to return the R-M Lever to its normal (center) position. The lever can also be set to 'M' when testing the shutter without film in the camera.
*Emergency Shutter Operation
If you were to suddenly find yourself with a dead battery in the midst of a photographic session, switch over to the emergency shutter operation mode. In order to do so, push the Collar Stop lever D toward the camera body and while holding it there align the white dot of the Release Button Collar with the orange dot E on the camera body. The shutter will now operate (even without a battery) at approximately 1/400 sec., regardless of the setting of the Shutter Speed Dial. Because electricity is not being used in the emergency shutter operation mode, the Monitor Lamps in the viewfinder will not illuminate. Moreover, even if the Dark Slide is not withdrawn, the shutter can still be released, so exercise care.
Revolving Back Position
Before revolving the back, set the R-M Lever to the "R" position. After this is done, the lever will automatically return to the normal position when the Shutter Release Button or Cocking Lever is next used.
Operating the Cocking Lever
When depressing the Cocking Lever, be sure to push it all the way forward (toward the Shutter Release Button). If the Cocking Lever is not pressed forward as far as it will go, it will return to its original position when released, but the shutter will not be cocked. At such a time, shutter will not operate and an orange warning lamp will illuminate in the viewfinder when the Shutter Release Button is depressed.
LED Monitor Lamp and Electronic Warning Sounds
The following page will explain the visual and audio signals which are built into the camera and which are designed to assure proper operation and to prevent mistakes.
Note: It may happen that when attaching the Roll Film Holder, or after having rotated the holder attached to the revolving back, the film advance coupling mechanisms between camera and holder may not properly mesh. In this case the shutter cannot be fired when the release is pressed and the orange warning lamp will light in the viewfinder. By moving the "M/R" lever to "R" and pushing the cocking lever slightly, the couplings will mesh and the release button will function again.
LED Monitor Lamps in Finder
There are three monitor lamps visible on the rear edge of the finder. They will indicate the following conditions when the shutter release is depressed:
Electronic Warning Sounds
If the dark slide is withdrawn, the release is depressed but the shutter will not fire and a beeping warning sound is heard, the following conditions may exist:
The speed dial is set on "AEF" but: the AE Finder or an RZ lens is not attached. An RB lens is mounted to camera. Attach an AE Finder and RZ lens, or: Change speed dial away from "AEF" and conform speed dial to match lens on camera. (i.e. "RBL" when RB lens is on camera.) The speed dial is set on "RBL" but: an RZ lens is attached. Either mount an RB lens, or change shutter speed dial away from "RBL" Battery Condition When the red monitor lamp blinks accompanied by the beeping warning sound, the battery is low. Replace the battery. Maximum 1 minute "B" exposure. When the shutter release is depressed for about 55 sec. a warning sound will be heard and the shutter will close after 5 sec. The same applies at "B" setting with mirror up photography.
: When it glows it indicates that: The dark slide has not been withdrawn. The camera battery is good. When the dark slide is withdrawn the light will go out. If then the monitor lamp blinks, accompanied by the electronic warning sound, it shows that the battery is weak and should be replaced.
Orange Lamp: When it glows it indicates that: The cocking lever has not been advanced or The roll film holder has not been advanced. (Does not apply when in multi exposure "M" mode.) Green Lamp : When the Metz/Mamiya Interface Module SCA 395 is attached to the flash shoe and connected to certain Metz flash units, this LED will glow to indicate that the unit is flash ready.
Shutter Speed and Aperture
The Shutter Speed Dial The Aperture Ring
Select the shutter speed desired and rotate the Shutter speed Dial until the appropriate figure is aligned with the shutter speed index mark. Usually, the Shutter Speed Dial must be set to a click-stop position. However, it can also beset to an intermediate speed. The numerals as they appear on the dial and the shutter speeds they represent are shown in the following table. When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to "B"(bulb), the shutter will remain open as long as pressure is applied to the Shutter Release Button and will close as soon as pressure is released. The AEF mark which appears on the Shutter Speed Dial is the setting for the AE Finder. When set at this position, the dial locks in place. To unlock it, rotate the dial while depressing the Lock Release Button which appears in the center of the dial. The RBL mark on the dial is setting for taking photos using the RB67 lenses. In other positions the shutter release button will not released.
Using RB67 Lenses on RZ PRO II Body As stated before, the camera speed dial must set to RBL and the shutter speed on the lens. In addition you must consider that the flange focal distance on RB lenses is 111 mm and on RZ lenses 104 mm. Therefore with RB lenses the bellows must be moved forward by 7 mm to focus on infinity. The distance scales cannot be used. Shutter release is identical to RZ lens operation.
To set the diaphragm to a desired aperture, rotate the Aperture Ring until the appropriate figure is aligned with the central index line. It is perfectly acceptable to use the Aperture Ring at in-between click-stop settings. When the Shutter Release Button is depressed, the diaphragm will automatically stop down to the preselected aperture before the shutter opens for the exposure.
The Roll Film Holder
Attaching the Holder
1. Slide the Holder Lock Lever of the Roll Film Holder completely toward the Lock Release Lever A.
2. Align the orange circle B of the Revolving Ring (found at the rear of the camera) with one of the two white index marks C or D on the camera body. 3. Hold the Holder so that its orange circle is at the same position as the one on the Re-volving Ring B and fit the holder onto the camera back, making sure that the four Camera Back Mount Pins fit into the four openings of the holder. Do not touch the Light Baffle or mirror. Touching the Baffle could result in light leaking in or other malfunction.
4. Lock the holder to the camera body by moving the Slide Lock as far as it will go as indicated by the arrow. Make sure that the holder securely couples with the camera body; otherwise light may leak in and cause film damage. Because of the revolving back feature, attaching the roll film holder to the camera requires a little practice. We find that a good method is to place the bottom edge of the holder against the bottom edge of the body, (preferably while resting on a flat surface) letting the top of the holder leave a slight gap, permitting you look down and to match the two bottom mounting pins of the revolving back to the corresponding holes of the holder.
1. Check the camera-to-subject distance on the Distance Scale. 2. Rotate the Lens Distance Scale Knob until the previously noted camera-to-subject distance is aligned with the center index of the Depth-of-Field Scale. 3. Locate the selected aperture on both sides of the Depth-of-Field Scale. 4. The figures of the Lens Distance Scale, appearing above the selected aperture, indicate the nearest and furthermost limits of sharpness for that aperture. For example, when the 110mm lens is focused at 3 m and stopped down to f /32, everything from approximately 2m to 10m will be in focus. When desiring to know the depth-of-field in feet, rotate the Lens Distance Scale 180, as one side is in feet and the other in meters.
Bulb (B) Exposures Time Exposures
When the Shutter Speed Dial is set to B, the shutter will remain open as long as the Shutter Release Button remains depressed. Since bulb exposure is also controlled electronically, the shutter will automatically close after approximately one minute in order to prevent inadvertent battery depletion. When using bulb, after the Shutter Release Button has been depressed for approximately 55 seconds, a warning buzzer will sound. If pressure on the Release Button is maintained, the buzzer will continue for about 5 seconds longer, after which the electricity will be automatically cut off and the shutter will close. If exposures longer than one minute are required please, use the time exposures mode.
1. To make a time exposure, first slide the T Lever of the lens until the letter "T" under the lever is visible and the normal "N" making is covered. After doing so, the shutter will remain open upon depressing the Shutter Release Button. At this time, the setting of the Shutter Speed Dial on the camera body ceases. 2. To close the shutter, slide the T Lever in the opposite direction, exposing the letter 'N' (normal), During time exposures, do not touch the Cocking Lever until the shutter closes.
Since the shutter operates mechanically, not electronically during a time exposure, there is virtually no drain of battery power, and the shutter speed dial can be set in any position other than "RBL".
Multiple Exposures Infrared Photography
RZ lenses need no focusing mount because of the bellows feature. Normally, lenses with focusing mounts have a secondary index for infrared film. Therefore, if you want to do critical infrared photography, you should focus as usual and before exposures move the focus slightly towards the camera body, as per table below. There is a millimeter scale on top of the focus scale. RZ67 PRO II Infrared Correction Table Shows required adjustment at infinity
1. Set the R-M Lever to 'M' (multiple exposure). The lever can be 100 moved to 'M' either before or after releasing the shutter. 2. Press the Cocking Lever as far as it will go in order to cock the shutter and set the mirror. The film will not advance at this time. The shutter can now be released, creating a double exposure. This procedure can be repeated as often as desired to create as many exposures as necessary. When photographing the same subject two or more times though, exposure compensation is necessary. The same is true with different subjects that are all evenly illuminated. With subjects of different brightness, the darker one is normally photographed first. However, it is not within the scope of this operating manual to teach multiple exposure technique, as many excellent books dealing with this subject are already available.
Unlike the "R" lever, the "M" lever does not return automatically to its normal position. Therefore you must do it manually. If you forget, the film is not transported and not only are subsequent exposures wasted, but the planned multiple exposure also.
Mirror Lock-up Operation
With the RZ 67 PRO II , it is possible to lock the mirror in the up position beforehand, and at the desired instant release the shutter without the usual accompanying mirror movement. Referred to as, "mirror lock-up operation," this technique is extremely valuable when even the slightest mirror vibration must be eliminated. When the mirror rises, it usually causes vibrations the very instant before the shutter opens, creating a possible loss of sharpness when working at high magnifications or with long shutter speeds. Consequently, mirror lock-up operation is especially useful when engaging in close-up photography, using telephoto lenses, and making long ("slow") exposures. Yet another application is when trying to catch the peak of
action. By raising the mirror beforehand, the shutter can instantly be released, totally eliminating the time lag usually present between the time the mirror completes its upward swing and the time the shutter opens. 1. After screwing a cable release firmly into the Mirror Lock-up Socket of the lens, the socket will elevate slightly and the camera will be ready for mirror lock-up operation. 2. Press the Cocking Lever as far as it will go. Step 2 may either follow or precede step 1. 3. Depress the Shutter Release Button and the mirror will rise, but the shutter will remain closed. 4. Press the plunger of the cable release and the shutter will operate.
When you no longer need mirror lock-up operation, remove the cable release. Upon removing the release, the Mirror Lockup Socket will retract and the camera will return to normal shutter operation. If you complete step 3 above, but remove the cable release without making an exposure (step 4), the shutter will be released as soon as the cable release is removed. Even when using mirror lock-up operation, everytime the shutter is cocked, the mirror is relowered. Therefore, it is possible to check the viewfinder before each frame is exposed. A double cable release is both an available and convenient accessory. Since one end of the release screws into the Shutter Release Button and the other end into the Mirror Lock-up Socket, it is possible to use the same release to raise the mirror and later release the shutter. The double cable release is particularly valuable when using B exposures with mirror lock-up operation. After pressing the shutter release button to raise the mirror, detach the cable release from the mirror lock-up socket. At that instant the shutter will be released. -Continued on next page-
Flash Photography Using a Tripod
Attaching Flash Units
As long as a cable release remains attached to the Mirror Lock-up Socket, the camera is set for mirror lock-up operation. Consequently, it will not be possible to take a photography by merely pressing the shutter release button. It the red line around the Mirror Lock-up Socket is still visible when the cable release is removed, the camera is still set for mirror lockup operation. If such is the case, reattach the cable release, making sure that the socket retracts as you remove it once again. The shutter should be released with the cable release within 55 seconds of pressing the Shutter Release Button. If this is not done, the alarm will sound after 55 seconds later and continue for 5 seconds before stopping. If you release the shutter with the cable release after the alarm stops (approx. 60 seconds), the shutter speed will be 1/400sec. If you wish to use a shutter speed other than 1/400 sec. after the buzzer stops, follow the procedure for multiple exposure in the steps given below. 1. Set the R-M lever to "M" (multiple exposure),and press down the cocking lever. 2. Set the shutter speed dial to a desired speed and perform "mirror lock-up". 3. Reset the R-M lever to its normal position.
Using a Tripod
Compact, clip-on units can be attached directly to the Hot-Shoe of the camera. When using large, grip-type units, attach the sync cord of the flash to the Flash Sync Terminal (X-sync) of the lens. When the Mamiya MZ36R Flash is used, a green monitor lamp will glow, indicating that battery charging has been accomplished.
Determining the Aperture
When using automatic flash units, refer to the instructions of the particular flash units for the correct apertures to use. When using a manual electronic flash unit or flash bulbs, the guide number (G.N) divided by the subject distance gives the correct aperture to use.
NOTE: Flash time, recharging time and synchro polarity differ depending on the type of flash unit. Check performance by taking test photographs.
For optimum quality, use of a large, sturdy tripod is recommended. The Tripod Socket will accept standard size (U 1/4" thread) tripod screws without modification. Simply attach the RZ 67 as you would any other camera with standard threads. When using a tripod with a 3/8" screw, first remove the small screw in the base of the Tripod Socket of the camera by rotating it counterclockwise with an appropriately sized screwdriver. Next, use a coin to remove the 1/4" adapter A from the Tripod Socket by rotating it counterclockwise. The camera can then be mounted on a 3/8" screw tripod.
Exposure Compensation for Close-up Photography
When working very close to the subject, the exposure must be increased. The actual exposure factor will vary in accordance with the distance that the lens is extended. (Optical law: Light intensity decreases by the square of the distance from the film plane). Exposure compensation is easily determined by referring to the Exposure Compensation Scale. After focusing the lens, read the exposure compensation factor on the scale. The scale is divided into three zones of light, medium, and dark shades. As indicated by the table at the base of the scale, the light zone represents an exposure factor of zero (no compensation is necessary), the medium shaded zone indicates +0.5 (a 1/2 stop increase in exposure is required), while the dark zone denotes a factor of +1 (a full stop increase in exposure is necessary). To find the exposure factor, first locate the figure on the Focal Length Scale for the lens in use. Next, move along the scale, in the same column, until you reach the Distance Graduation. The shading of the zone (light, medium, dark) which touches the Distance Graduation indicates the correct exposure factor. For example, when the 110mm lens is focused as shown in the illustration, the correct exposure factor is +1. The scale curve for each lens has a white O mark which coincides with the right-hand lens indication. So, use the mark to find the corresponding scale curve for each lens. With a factor of +0.5, open the aperture by a half-stop. For example, assume that a hand-held exposure meter indicates a normal exposure reading of f /16 at 1/60 sec., for an exposure compensation of +1, set the lens to either f /16 at 1/30 sec. or f/11 at 1/60 sec. When using a Mamiya through-the-lens (TTL) Exposure Meter Finder, such as the RZ AE Prism Finder, it corrects automatically for close-up photography. For optimum sharpness at the corners when using the 50 mm and 65mm wide-angle lenses at distances closer than 1 meter, use as small an aperture as possible. The bellows extension in millimeters appears on the top of the Focal Length Scale. These figures are used to determine the required exposure compensation factor when using extension tubes. For areas covered with the bellows fully extended, see the instructions for all interchangeable lenses.
Attaching a Lens with Shutter Released or Mirror Raised
When a lens is removed from the camera body, the mirror is set (lowered) and the lens shutter cocked. Conversely, when attaching a lens, the same conditions should prevail (mirror set and shutter cocked). However, should a lens be attached with either the mirror raised or shutter released, or both, the camera can be reset by following the procedures below. 1. If the mirror is raised (regardless of whether the lens shutter is cocked or released), simply depress the Cocking Lever to reset the camera. 2. If mirror is set and lens shutter released (closed), remove the Dark Slide from Film Holder and depress the Shutter Release Button (film will not be exposed). Next, depress the Cocking Lever to reset the camera. 3. When a lens is removed from the camera both the mirror and the lens shutter are cocked, or they can't be separated. Elsewhere we explained how to uncock both. (For storage, for instance). 4. To rejoin them both have to be in a cocked state. To cock the camera (lowering the mirror), just activate the film advance lever, To cock lens shutter, follow instructions supplied with lenses.
Using RB Series Lenses and Accessories
RB67 lenses are mounted directly onto the RZ PRO II ; however, the bellows must be extended 7 mm in order to focus the lens at infinity. Therefore, even when photographing distant subjects, be sure to use the Focusing Screen. CAUTION: Because of the differences in flange back between the two series of lenses, the Distance Scale of the RZ PRO II body does not apply when using RB67 lenses.
When using the RB series PD Prism Finder or PD Magnifying Finder be sure the Electrical Contact Cover is in place, for it is used to depress the switch at the base of the finder.
The RZ PD Prism Finder will not function on the RZ II. It cannot be retrofitted.
2. Shutter Speed Selection
When a RB67 lens is mounted on the RZ PRO II body, use the Shutter Speed Ring of the lens for shutter speed selection. Be sure to set to the "RBL" position. Once this done all the other speed dial settings are immobilized. The shutter is cocked and released in the same manner as RZ series lenses. When using a Mamiya Sekor C lens for the RB series on the RZ PRO II body, be sure to insert an optional interchange mounting ring into the lens rear mount to assure correct coupling with the camera body. Older RB Lenses should be checked before use, to determine if their shutter torque is compatible with the RZ PRO II. Before try ing, please send such lenses to the service department of your country's Mamiya distributor.
Care of the Camera
As your camera is a precision instrument avoid exposing it to severe vibrations or shock. Be careful when interchanging lenses and film holders. Use the neckstrap whenever possible.
The Mamiya RZ PRO II is designed for heavy professional use and will last indefinitely, if properly maintained. Every camera has mechanisms like film transport, shutter, diaphragm blade etc. They are controlled by gears. levers, springs, rollers, etc., which are subject to wear and tear and also require special lubrication from time to time. Ambient conditions like dust. sea air and moisture can also affect these mechanisms. To uncock the mirror and the lens shutter, remove the lens from the cocked camera. Press the release button and the mirror will go up and stay up. To release shutter of cocked lens, see instructions on page 13. We recommend that the camera body should be serviced at least about every 50,000 exposures (about 5000 rolls of 120 film): your roll film holders about every 20,000 exposures; your leaf shutter lenses about every 10, 000 exposures. Please contact the Mamiya Distributor in your country for service information.
When not used for a long period of time remove the battery and film from the camera and keep mirror and shutters in uncocked state. Avoid storing the camera and lenses in humid or sea air atmosphere or in extreme hot or cold environment. Periodically exercise film transport and shutters by making a number of blind exposures at various shutter speeds and f/stops.
Never touch the lens or mirror surfaces. If a lens needs cleaning, use a blower or lens tissue to remove dust particles. Never use anything other than a blower for the mirror, as its surface should never be touched.
Periodically check the camera to make sure it is in working order. This is especially important before beginning a photographic session or assignment. Check the battery, flash synchronization, mirror and shutter operation, diaphragm automation, and film advance. Also check any accessories you plan to use.
Features and specifications subject to change without notice.
