Question about Mamiya RZ67 ProII Medium Format Camera

Mamiya RZ 67 lens is stuck on body

Hi.  I have a mint RZ67 with 110mm lens, which I baby.
I haven't shot with it for a while, though, and I picked it up recently and found that I can't advance the film or release the shutter.  Also, I cannot remove the lens.
THe lens lock does not rotate all the way to the release position.
I have not dropped the camera and nothing has happened to it that I can think of.
Thanks, Jordan

    Hey, thanks for the help.  The film lever was getting stuck because the spool in the 120 back was not advancing properly.  So I put a different back on, tried what you suggested, and it worked.

This is likely because the shutter has not been cocked all the way. Return the lens to the fully locked position and advance the film with the lever all the way down to reset the shutter. If it still doesn't work, move the lever to M for multiple exposure, make sure the back is aligned and trip the shutter release. Then fully **** the shutter again by pressing the advance lever down fully and again until it is reset. Then try to remove the lens again.

Nikon F65 won't auto-focus or take shots

You're on the right track with oxidation. Try cleaning the contacts in the body and on the lens with contact cleaner, and let it dry. Remove the battery, and clean the contacts inside the camera.

I have a mamiya RZ Pro two and I am looking to find a digital back for it. If you could offer any guidance and advice I would be very greatful as there seems to be very little help for th RZ film...

Currently . You need a digital back adapter (approx.$1500.00+ US) then the digital back itself (Approx. 25,000+ US). yes that is correct!. THe RZ67 Pro II needs the DM56 adaptor then the DM 56 back itself. Why not check out the all new RZ22 (22mp) or the RZ33(33mp). The RZ22 is approximately $12,000.00 US and the RZ33 around $18,000.00. Hasselblad also make a 39 and a 50mp digital medium format, expect to pay 2-3 times that of a Mamiya. For a 35mm type dSLR, Nikon just introduce the D3X with 24.5 megapixals. The body alone runs anywhere from $6,500-$8000 US.
