All it takes is for an unsteady hand for a sway forward or backward to take it out of the critical focus zone.
Maybe next time I should take it out with a tripod and cable release and give it a go. Stopping down the lens produces even cleaner results. I can wholeheartedly recommend this camera to anyone looking for Cc220 camera! However, I can vouch that it exists and is extremely easy to engage!
Focusing is performed by turning the knobs and extending the bellows. The top etched line denotes the top of the image when the bellows are extended to the x1. Close up on the left side controls. The bottom etched line similarly denotes the top of the image when at x2. Close up of the bellows markings. The focusing knobs are on both sides. To be honest this was another reason that Janual picked up the camera.
The 80mm lens is roughly equivalent to a 50mm lens in the full frame format. The bottom portion is the most important part. The camera manua, has a good heft to it. Being capable of producing beautiful images in such a small package is a definite advantage over my much larger and heavier Fuji GXIIIS! I eventually came across the Mamiya C Shooting with this camera is still a rather slow experience.
While not comprehensive, I have been using the camera when I could for the past 6 months.

The shutter release is on the right side and within reach of the right thumb. Thank you for reading!
In practical use, they are close enough. This camera has been a solid performer for me in multiple available light fashion shoots, and easily one of my favorite medium format film cameras so far. Pop out magnifier up close. The shutter cock is on the left side and within reach of the left thumb. This makes changing settings cumbersome. So at x2, you will need roughly an extra stop of light to maintain proper exposure due to extended bellows.
While I have free handed the camera, the neck strap does provide additional stability especially when trying to achieve critical focus. All of the controls are in intuitive and easy to reach places. My Usage Experience While not comprehensive, I have been using the camera when I could for the past 6 months. Probably the last consideration that pushed me towards the C was the potential of failure and repair.
Janual did appreciate the lighter weight, however insignificant. The marking indicate approximately how much exposure compensation is needed and which etched grid line to use as a reference to the top of the image. The aperture ring manjal a small nub that can be operated with the right index finger, but for the most part I usually have to look at it in order to adjust. My only complaint about the magnifier is that I have on mmamiya occasion gotten the back flap stuck after popping out the magnifier.
Although the camera has interchangeable lenses, I have yet to buy additional lenses. Close up of the focusing screen. On the screen there is also two etched lines that provide framing compensation due to parallax. I found the Sekor 80mm lens to be very versatile. There is also a pop out magnifier which is handy to achieve critical focus.
That being said, a neck strap is a must. The whole package is solidly build and polished. Loading film is easy as the entire back swings mamiyz to reveal the loading chamber. The camera is surprisingly ergonomic despite being a box. The same goes for the shutter speed.

Kelly Dun I’m a hobbyist photographer that enjoys shooting cosplay, fashion, and street photography using digital and film cameras. Something to watch out for.
A bit of camera porn. How much of the bellows is revealed indicates either an x1, x1. At the end of the day, I could live with no parallax compensation and manual shutter cocking.
