Mamiya RZ67 Portraits – Here are a series of film scan images I shot on my Mamiya RZ67 Pro II 6×7 medium format film camera.  I used the Mamiya 110mm f2.8 lens (as pictured above), the amazingly big and bright Mamiya RZ waist level viewfinder and a Mamiya RZ 6×6 film back rather than a standard RZ 6×7 film back.  After using my Hasselblad 501C / 500CM cameras a lot I prefer composing as a square than 6×7.   I used a mixture of film stocks for the shoot but many of the colour photos were shot on expired 120 Kodak Portra 160 film.

All the photos were shot on a model photography trip to Budapest in February 2017 when I finally decided to take the big Mamiya RZ67 overseas (for the first time I think). Since then I have gone back to travelling with a Hasselblad camera or if I need to travel light only Leica M cameras.  Hasselblad cameras are nice but the Mamiya RZ67 viewfinder is still the best (biggest, brightest, easiest to focus) and I enjoy the Mamiya RZ bellows system where I can focus as close as I wish with any lens. (Like the even more amazing Rolleiflex SL66E camera which also uses bellows but is always breaking / jammed).

I have blogged my thoughts on the Hasselblad vs. Mamiya RZ67 comparison before.  12 months (or so) on and with me now using more Hasselblad equipment I think the Mamiya RZ photos here render smoother than my Hasselblad photos (that I can think of) and using the above mentioned Mamiya Sekor 110mm f2.8 lens the sharpness is fantastic.  Both the Mamiya RZ67 Pro II and the Hasselblad 500CM /501C are very good cameras.

A big thanks to the Budapest models Petra, Patricia and Nora.  I was using multiple cameras so the other girls may have been shot on a 35mm Leica film camera or digital Leica M240.

*(I don’t normally say this but I would strongly recommend you to click any image that catches your eye to view larger on Flickr as small size here really doesn’t do the camera / lens / model justice!).
