About this product
- Product InformationThe Japanese Mamiya C330f, is still popular among photography enthusiasts as one of the best twin reflex camera for manual shooting. The first lens in this SLR camera lets you see the image and focus, while the other lens is used to click the picture. The Mamiya C330f uses 120 or 220 roll film to take pictures in a medium format ranging between 6.45 upto 6.17 inches. With the interchangeable lens system in this twin reflex camera you can use a 55 mm wide lens as well as a 250mm telephoto lens. This SLR camera has a waist level viewfinder for viewing and focusing the virtual image from a distance. The Mamiya C330f allows for extreme close-ups and is thus great for portraits.

If you want a TLR to use this is an excellent choice, with a lightweight (plastic) body and loads of additional features.

A bit of a risk
i) Why Buy a Mamiya C330F? They are beautiful bits of kit. The quality of the lens is extraordinary, and the concertina zoom is great fun. Other people love the camera, and are normally very happy for you to take their portrait with it. ii) What's the Risk? But here are two main problems with the Mamiya C330F. First, these cameras are old now. When you buy one of Ebay, it is very difficult to know if it will work well. And so you have a dilemma, if the camera is going for around £160, that is a great price if it is in full working order, but a bad price if it is not. I recently asked for a quote from Sendean Cameras in London get one repaired. They said it would cost £349 to do so. The second problem is that the Mamiya C330F takes 120 film. If you like square photos, that might be one of its main attractions. Still, it's expensive. A single roll of 120 film might cost around £8 to buy. On top of that the development costs are high. Peak Imaging charge over £4, plus the postage price. If you want a scan to put the photo on Flickr, or the such like, the cost will be even higher. Read full review

Mamiya C330 Professional F Camera
I am a photography degree student have been using the university's cameras for a while. I am really pleased that I now have my own Mamiya C330, I love the sturdy, clunkyness of it, although this might put some photographers off the camera it feels to me like I am taking 'proper' photographs not just some digital image that can be manipulated to look like a decent photograph. The camera uses medium format film which gives a bigger negative affording more detail in the pictures and easier enlargement in the dark room. All the knobs levers and buttons on the Mamiya are fairly self explanitory and the lense, a 80mm one is useful for both close up and distance shots. Altogether I am extremely happy with the camera and would recommend it to all types of photographers.

Mamiya C330 F Professional TLR Film Camera
I bought this as a damaged camera for spares/repair. It shows classic signs of having been dropped. There are parts missing, and being the model F, some parts are different from the base model. I couldn't grumble about the price. Preliminary indications are that it is functioning despite one of the worst dents I've come across to the filter ring on the taking lens, but there is no obvious damage to the lenses. I will need to strip the camera to assess furthur and am reasonably confident that after a service with damaged parts replaced, it will be a good going camera capable of providing many years of reliable service.

Like an old friend
If you like the feel of cheap lightweight plastic bodied cameras that you can slip in your top pocket................ Forget this one. This is a veritable beast that feels absolutely bombproof. I wanted one years ago but could never afford one, now they are down in price thanks to digital this and that; never have I been so glad of digital. I will probably use it for home studio portraits and it has encouraged me to get out my old lighting gear. Maybe I will even get to try landscape again; something I would like to master. Either way this has made me realise that I want to think about photography, not just point and shoot. I would recommend that anyone who wants to get into serious photography has a look at this camera, I know that 6x6 SLR's are possibly better, but this is cheap enough now to spend some time working with and I think the results will be just as good as Hasselblad etc. Read full review
