Mamiya Camera Viewfinders and Eyecups
Mamiya is a Japanese company who have specialised in high end cameras since the 1940s. Many of these cameras are vintage so you may find that the Mamiya camera viewfinders and eyecups might be missing or broken on your camera. If so, there are many options available to you in order to preserve the life of the camera.
The viewfinder is the most important user interface on the camera. Its helps to aim the camera and frame the shot correctly. By blocking out light it gives an impression of what the final picture might look like. Camera viewfinders adjust according to the lens you have on the camera and will move in and out so you can frame the image to your preferences. Viewfinders on Mamiya cameras are interchangeable so you can replace it if it's broken for one that's in better condition.
The eyecup is the rubber surrounding the eyepiece of the camera. Rubber is very durable but over time it will gradually deteriorate. With vintage cameras, it's important to replace these simple features to improve the usability and general look of your equipment. Camera eyecups make vintage photography more comfortable so are essential to the upkeep of your camera. Luckily, replacement eyecups are available to fit this type of camera.
Check carefully that the item is compatible with the model of the Mamiya camera you own. If you're looking to use the camera, make sure it's fully operational. There may be some superficial damage but this won't necessarily make it unuseable as any vintage item will have signs of wear and tear.
The optics are the most crucial part of the viewfinder so make sure there are no cracks or scratches. If you're a collector and not planning on using the camera, some damage might be acceptable but make sure you have all the details before making a purchase.
