I have passed only one roll through my Mamiya NC1000 so far and to say the least, I've been amazed by every photo I took! Very easy to handle, controls work exactly as they were designed to and it just makes you feel in control! I do not own a MF Mamiya, but I know why pros go for it!

This is the first fully manual camera I used. I consistenly take my best images using this camera. The optics on the lenses are great especially with taking low light images.

It was a workhorse and stills serves me today after 30 years. Retirement is not too far off though.

Back in 1981 this was my first SLR camera. Got it because of Mamiya's reputation with medium format. It was a very good camera (and lenses!). Sturdy, fully manual, the old fashion way. I miss it. Today I am using a Maxxum Stsi (Dynax 404si), all plastic... but efficient.
