Mamiya 7ii Photos

Picking up on the thread "Mamiya 7ii users ... where are you", there are some new '7' photos on my web site. I recently took a short trip mto the Isle of Wight and a new gallery shows a selection of the photos from the trip. Link here:

Do it :-) If you love the tonality, small negs cannot touch big negs.

Unless of course the M is more suitable in terms of speed and portability...

Beautiful shots guys. And the scans are very impressive-- anyone want to share how they are scanning their negs?

OK, that's enough -- just cast the winning bid on my own 50mm to join my 80mm. Been sitting on the fence for months, feels good to make the decision.

I originally went with the Mamiya 7II because I was hooked on bigger negs and wanted a travel camera that I would never leave behind. One of my best photography purchases ever. Lately I've been pairing it with one of the Gitzo 1541T tripods + a lightweight Acratech head. Just a complete pleasure on all levels. Can't wait to take the setup on a motorcycle trip up the coast .

Oh, and Double Neg -- the hyperfocal settings are off on my 80, I cheat by at least a stop and sometimes two.

Thanks for sharing the pics guys, though my wallet is now screaming at the top of it's lungs.

Thanks marduk.

craygc, lovely images. I've been meaning to get over to Borobodur for some time now. Which volcano is that? And which lens are you using on these shots?

Helen, don't sell the M4 just yet. I find that an M and a M7II are different tools, despite both being rangefinders. I use the Mamiya for landscape and a bit of travel photography, but my first love is still street photography, and an M is still unmatched in that genre.

I also use an Epson V700, the betterscanning MF negative holder and Silverfast.

Borodudur is definitely the 43mm; all the rest are the 65mm (I think). The mangroves could be the 43mm as well. The volcano is called Mount Merapi (strangely enough there is a second Mt Merapi in Indonesia in far East Java near the Kawah Ijen crater)

Nikon 9000ED with a single piece of AN glass on top of the neg in the standard holder - a lot cheaper option than Nikon's glass carrier. I use Vuescan and take multiple focus readings across the neg.
...and to that end Im really glad that I got a request to Ed Hamrick into the current 8.5.15 release - keyboard shortcut to activate manual focus

One more Mamiya 7II shot...


Winter in the outskirts of Tokyo in an area called Hachioji


Ive also recently discovered the Thinktank Airport Antidote backpack as a great way to carry Mamiya 7s with the lens and external viewfinder attached - the camera fits in sideways Lets me carry two bodies all set up to use, as well as carrying a small format system.

I'm scanning my transparencies with an Epson 4990 -- certainly nothing very fancy. Regarding the DOF scales, I use two stops more to get the required sharpness than the scales indicate. I use my Mamiya 7II on a tripod with slow film most of the time, so using smaller apertures/slow shutter speeds aren't a big deal for me. Really Right Stuff makes a lightweight, inconspicuous Arca style body plate that lives on the camera at all times. Great setup.

This thread is making me second guess my decision to take the Leica M7 (+ backup CL) with a few lenses instead of the 7II on an upcoming trip. Still think I'll do that but its awful tempting to simplify...



Not my usual kind of photography but I thought it might be nice to share it anyway, landscape and color that is. Last few posts have been b+w so I'll mix it up a bit. Name the volcano?

There are 3 volcanos here. Semaru in the distance. Highest mountain in Indonesia. Still active and regularly ejecting. Batok in the foreground; and Bromo to the left of Batok. Bromo is the name usually used to refer to this area but has had a lot of its top blown off. See map attached...

These are all awesome. The one thing I don't see though in this thread is shallow DoF shots. Specifically, people shots with DoF. Is the Mamiya not generally used for these types of shots?

Thanks to this thread, I just purchased a 7II and 43mm from Jamie Drouin.

I had a Mamiya 7 with 80/150 which I sold to help fund a second M8 and Leica M7, and I always regretted that decision everytime I look at the extremely detailed large prints I have hanging on the wall. Fortunately, I kept the 65mm, since something was telling me at the time that there would be another Mamiya 7 in my future. So cheers to everyone that posted an image to this thread. I have been pleasantly reminded of the error of my ways.

I think I'm convinced I need a Mamiya 7.
I did some shooting last week with a folding 6x6 and my R3A in my bag. I love the 6x6, but the convenience of the good rangefinder/viewfinder and a built in meter meant that I kept reaching for the R3A when I would rather have had the large negative.
Solution...Mamiya 7 I think. Best of both worlds.
