Post a comment.Discussion in ' Medium Format ' started by hjoseph7May 30, Mamiya 70mm F2. If there was one last thing I did, it would be to purchase and use an MF lens with built-in shutter.

I know that most of the Hassy lenses have built in shutters, but Mamiya only has a few of them that I know of. Well lucky for me KEH was selling one 70mm f2. I'm really enjoying the pure mechanical nature of this lens. I guess I got to get use to it, but you certainly have to go through a few steps before you can take a picture.

Especially if you are setting the lens to the built-in shutter. It's almost like using a LF View Camera. I'm wondering if Hassy owners have to go through all of this? The good thing is you can disengage the built-in shutter and just use it as a regular lens.

I got my old Metz handle mound and tried it out and everything seems to be working OK so far I got off a couple of shots but since this aint digital, I got to wait till I develop the film.

Is there anything else I need to know about using this lens? Is it as sharp as the 80mm's. Is it as rugged? I'm thinking about using it as an every day lens if that is the case. As heavy as my camera is, a flash might help freeze the action in certain situations. Harry Harry, HA HA!

Like you, I have long thought of getting some leaf shutter lenses but have just never done it. There have been times when the fast flash sync speed capability would have really been nice portraits outdoors in the shade, exposing for the background and using fill flash.


Money is pretty tight on me now so my equipment buying has slowed way down, but I might sell off some stuff and put some money toward leaf shutter lenses. Have fun with yours. Of course, sadly, many people with DSLR cameras now a days would not even know what sync speed or leaf shutter lenses even means. Oops, there is a catch when using this leaf-shutter lens. The PD Prism finder becomes disengaged when you decide to use the buitl-in shutter inside the lens. Meaning that you have no way to determine the proper exposure automatically, unless you use a light-meter.

I have two of those 70mm leaf lenses Harry. Optically, they're magnificent! I actually prefer the look of them over any of the 80mm lenses. You might think that owning two is a bit greedy, but the second one was a non-worker when I got it that needed some TLC to put it back in serviceable order.

And besides it was at an absolute giveaway price. Anyway the 70mm lens is a real gem with a quality slightly different from the 80mm standard. As you've observed Harry, the camera's focal-plane shutter makes using Mamiya's leaf lenses a bit awkward.

The newer lenses have the facility to be linked electrically with the camera. They have an electric motor or solenoid built in that automatically cocks the shutter when coupled to the accessory winder of the camera. Although those lenses can be cocked manually as well. With the introduction of the newer design, the 70mm focal length was dropped from the line-up and replaced with an 80mm leaf version.

Then, earlier this year, both Mamiya and Phase One announced an updated camera which Phase One calls the DF, and it was also announced that Phase One had bought a controlling interest in Mamiya.

In fact Phase One has now taken the lead in designing and developing new cameras and lenses which will be sold under both brand names.

More on these shortly. Badwater Moon. Death Valley, California. November, Phase One DF with 45mm lens. These camera bodies were the first full production DF cameras off the assembly line. But I was also loaned a new DF camera by Phase for my use during the workshop, and for further testing and evaluation once I got home. This report is based on my use of the DF in Death Valley, comments and feedback from the other thirty attendees and instructors, and my own continuing tests and shooting once I returned from our Death Valley shoot.

And, to answer the inevitable question up front — yes — I have ordered a DF camera upgrade based on this experience. November, Phase One DF with mm lens. At its heart it is a traditional medium format single lens reflex camera that can mount Phase One and Mamiya branded autofocus as well as manual focus lenses of just about any vintage.

The camera also ships with a standard Hasselblad V series lens adaptor so that if you own legacy Hasselblad lenses, or enjoy searching eBay and camera shops for used bargains, these can be mounted as well though of course without AF capability. A focus confirmation light is available though in the viewfinder. You can mount just about any available brand of digital back on the camera, including those from Phase One, Mamiya, and Leaf.

Note though that Mamiya film backs can not be used with the DF. This is unfortunate for those of us that would like to use film as field backup and for very long exposures. The solution would appear to be an inexpensive used Mamiya camera for this purpose.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but this versatility makes the DF the most customizable medium format camera on the market. Neither can a film back be mounted on the Hassy as with the DFbut nor can even another Hasselblad back without the camera and back both being returned to the factory in Denmark for matching.

This makes back rentals and field safety-backups problematic at best. A fully matched Hasselblad body and back becomes the only solution. Similarly with the upcoming Leica S2, which because it is an integrated camera requires a complete additional body as a backup solution. In other words, it mostly sucked. With the DF autofocus is now in the same league as other medium format cameras. Not better than, but as good — which is to say, not anywhere near as fast and full of tricks as even a mid-range DSLR.

As this is being completed for publication I am in the midst of testing a production Leica S2.

My initial impression is that the S2 and the Phase One DF are evenly matched in autofocus performance. There are two modes — Fast and Norma l. In Fast mode the camera hits the focus point and then stops. In Normal mode it continues past it, confirms that it is beyond and then returns, providing possibly greater accuracy. This is also pretty quick, but for a fashion shooter, for example, Fast will be the preferred mode.

On previous cameras we have not had the ability to do one-button autofocus. One had to focus by half pressing the shutter release and then activate the front AF lock button. Or, one can move the lens off of AF mode. None of these was really ideal.

Now with the DF the user can uncouple autofocus from the shutter button and place it on either a button on the front of the body or the rear of the grip under ones thumb.There seems to be a problem serving the request at this time.

Brand see all. Mamiya Filter Applied. Condition see all. Open box. Seller refurbished.Discussion in ' Medium Format ' started by hjoseph7Jul 7, I never thought much about the Mamiya Leaf shutter lenses, mostly because of the prices. Now I find out how valuable they are when it comes to shooting moving subjects with Flash. I use to see some used models pop-up once in a while on ebay, but I can't seem to pull up any these days.

Have they become extinct? Hary - 3 come up on ebay right now None KEH. They're popular. I have one I'll never part with for its flash functionality.

You're right, I see them now. I see one 70mm and a 80mm, but wouldn't a mm be more convenient for let's say modeling or weddings? Sorry Harry, I wasn't thinking. I use a M S, so I only think about the 70mm 2. As you say the 55mm 2. Perhaps my ranks have gobbled up all the good stuff?

As far as focal lenght, I guess one needs what they need. I do mostly landscape stuff, so one lens for daylight fill flash is OK as I don't deal with people situations much.

Happy hunting. Why would that be? I am genuinely curious. Ray - I guess it sounded like that, but you are correct. I did not get my thought from my mind to the paragraph. To set the lens for manual cocking, turn the shutter cocking switch from the A to the M position and then use the shutter cocking ring to manually cock the shutter after each exposure. Thanks for making the correction Ray, right on! Jim M. Jim, Thanks for clearing that up. What I wrote doesn't really qualify as a "correction" since I was so unsure of it - I posed it as another question!

I too have Bob Shell's book, which is an excellent technical reference, but I didn't think to look it up there. The only problem with that book is that it makes you want to own the whole family of Mamiya MF camera systems! I have the and the Universal Press And as for the ones that came out after the book - the AF series and the Mamiya 7 - oooh!

I have the s, so what Jim is saying is that the 70mm is the most convenient of the 4 leaf lenses for my camera. Last nite after some thinking while trying to go to sleep, I got up and fired off a question to Mamiya I understand the electronics will not work, but will the lens be able to be manually cocked and fired with the shutter release?

Are there any issues with the mounting flange?

But all manual focus lenses work on the MS and the electronics work fine. Jim thanks they work, but you have to go through all this manual cocking of the shutter stuff, what's the point?

But Harry, you have to manually cock the shutter on the old 70mm LS lens, as well cocking is just a twist of a collar on the front of the lens.Due to recent changes in our spam policy, private messages to fellow members will not be available until you have posted at least 20 messages in our public forum area.

Messages: I would like to start doing some 'strobist' style work with my Mamiyaand I'm looking for leaf shutter lenses. I've noticed that they are not all that common, and when they are, they are quite expensive.

I think I'm just going to go for one right now, and see how it goes. My choice right now is the 80mm or the 70mm. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me which they think is better? Feb 28, 2.

Please explain "strobist". If that means multiple flashes on the same exposure, why not just open the shutter B and fire the strobes by hand You don't need an expensive lens for that, you can use the lenses you allready have. Camera on a tripod 'cause. Feb 28, 3. Sorry, I should have explained what I meant. The website is www. Basically it is using on camera flash as an alternative to expensive lighting.

Anyway, I've done this with a digital camera, and would like to try this with film. Feb 28, 4. Messages: 8,The Mamiya camera systems are a series of medium format film and digital cameras and lenses manufactured by Mamiya and its successors. They are called "" because they use the nominal 6cm x 4.

All seven of the manual-focus Mamiya cameras can use the same lenses and film inserts film spools. The two generations use different viewfinders, grips, and other accessories that are not always cross-compatible.

The Mamiya Manual-Focus lenses will work on all manual-focus bodies. They will also work on autofocus bodies such as the Mamiya AF, Mamiya DF and Phase One DFbut manual-focus lenses will require light metering after the lens has been stopped down, unlike native autofocus lenses. Third-party adapters exist to use these manual-focus lenses on Nikon F mountCanon EF mountand other cameras.

These lenses will not work on the Phase One XF unless modified. All Mamiya lenses are multi-coated. Nearly all have curved aperture blades, rendering smooth backgrounds at wider aperture settings. Leaf shutter lenses had a separate PC socket. In the "Versions" column, the versions are separated by commas. For example, the mm had two versions, the original "C" and the updated "N".

Please see the references for the full reviews. It was a departure from the previous manual system, in that the finders and grips were no longer detachable and interchangeable.

It still used the same lens mount, but the new autofocus lenses did not have an aperture ring; rather, the lens aperture was controlled by dials on the camera. Manual-focus lenses could still be used on the autofocus cameras, but not vice versa. If manual focus lenses are used, the lens aperture must be set before metering the scene known as "stop-down metering" which made the manual-focus lenses of limited usefulness compared to the newer autofocus lenses.

Phase One also sells Schneider-Kreuznach lenses, which are also branded as Mamiya. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved Mamiya Leaf. IanB Foto Ltd. Modern Photography. September
