The Mamiya RB67 is an iconic Japanese medium format camera. Mamiya has released 3 different versions of RB67 system: RB67 Pro, RB67 Pro-S and RB67 Pro-SD. The cameras are famous for their amazing modular system and the rotating back (hence the abbreviation RB), which allows the user to shoot the 67-format in landscape and portrait orientation without rotating the camera. These cameras are known to be workhorses and have served many photographers inside as well as outside the studio. As most medium format cameras, the lenses for the RB67 system are equipped with a leaf shutter, which allows faster sync speeds for speedlights or strobes (whereas most focal-plane shutter medium format cameras are limited to 1/60th of a second). The shutter speeds of the lenses range from 1 second to 1/400th of a second. The RB67 is a fully mechanical system that doesn’t require any batteries to operate, which makes it really versatile. Because the focussing happens via a built-in bellows system, the camera allows you to get up-close and personal with your subject.
The standard 67 back, allows you to shoot 10 frames per roll of 120 film. 645, 66 and 68 backs are also available for the system.
