Description:

Ever wanted to dive into the magical world of medium format photography but didn't want to commit to one of those MASSIVE RZ67's. Same.

Enter stage left: The Mamiya 6 Rangefinder Camera!

This sleek camera is super compact for a medium format. Coupled with it's folding lens, this makes for a perfect travelling companion. The 75mm focal range is pretty wide for my tastes but when you've got that sweet 6x6 format, yum!

Now for those of you who like to nerd out on the trivia... This bad boy was released in 1989 so you could say that was a pretty sweet year (if I do say so myself). Aged in it's 30's, this sleek bit of technology still appears as young as ever. The camera itself is easy and fast to use and makes sharp images due to the silent and vibration free electronic leaf shutters and rangefinder-design lenses. I've found plenty of resources on youtube and google getting started with this beast. This is coming from someone who was terrified to jump into the medium format world. There's a couple of other lenses you can buy for this Mamiya 6; the 50mm f/4 and the 150mm f/4. I wouldn't mind giving that 150mm a whirl for some portraits if I could get my hands on one.

All in all, this camera is SLEEK. I would buy one myself if I had some spare coin lying around. Jump on it, this beauty won't be around for long.        - Stacey, FND.
