Question about Mamiya RZ67 ProII Medium Format Camera

Shutter speed Hi, my shutter on my RZ67 Pro seems to fire off at the same speed, even though I have set it to a much slower shutter speed, i.e. it sounds like it is not holding open long enough, and resulting in my photos being very over exposed....any ideas??? thanks

I'm not a repairman so whether or not this works, but I noticed in the manual the shutter speed can not be set in between settings unlike the aperature.

My suggestion is an obvious one, though I messed up a job not figuring this out til afterwards! The battery. If the battery is weak or cold there will not be enough voltage to keep the magnet active and holding the shutter open for the correct amount of time. (This was confirmed by Johnsons Photopia on the phone). This will mean you may have set a slow shutter speed of say 8s but the actual speed you get will be the default manual speed of around 1/400s, which is the speed the shutter fires at when you have no battery. This will result in underexposure and the shutter sounding as if it is not holding open long enough as you describe.

If you are getting overexposure then I would expect the shutter to be open longer than needed for some reason, which would be another problem.

How do you clean the Shutter inside a Conon 1D Mark II ?


With black images and you cannot see shutter action, it sounds as though you have a shutter failure. There should be a "clean sensor" setting in the menu that will hold the shutter open until you power off the camera. If the shutter still doesn't open with this feature then the shutter has failed and will need to go in for repair.

I just purchased a used RZ67 PRO II camera in excellent condition. No mater what shutter speed I chose including "BULB" the shutter reacts at the same speed. The lens on thew camera has no...


It is probably the battery. A lot of these cameras have electronically controlled shutters, that automatically fire at the fastest speed possible if there isn't a battery to slow it down.

I cant seem to change the shutter speed from 1/400. I have put a battery in. no matter what setting it always seems to fire the same shutter speed.


Sounds like the electronics are broken. A lot of cameras will fire the shutter at full speed if the electronics aren't working to slow it down. Take it to a professional shop.

Nikon F100 does not advance film to start of roll,


Jim, it really sounds like one of threethings. Either will require a repair shop.
1. the film sensor is not recognizing film in the film chamber, or film across the back, therefore not telling the advance motor to advance film...
2. The film advance motor itself needs replaced.
3. The rear door latch switch needs replaced.
Since everything else seems to do OK, I doubt the main computer board is bad.

Pictures very dark even with a light meter


Digital cameras operate on a delayed shutter. Your Camera and flash are not synchronized. Try adjusting flash to a slower speed. Or the cameras Fstop value to get them insync.

If you half push the shutter the rangefinder and focus circuits kick in and will adjust to available light and give you your best picture. Do not ever push the shutter in one step. press it slightly to get the best focus and then push the last millimeter to get the picture!

My Rebel XT automatic sport mode photos are all blurry. I noticed that the shutter speed only reads around 13. There is also a pause indicating a slower shutter speed. Any suggestions?


There isn't enough light for that scene. 1/13th of a second is the fastest at that ISO (automatically set by camera in Basic Mode) and Aperture (auto set by camera too, in Basic Mode) that the camera can handle to provide a reasonably exposed image. Try using Tv on the Mode Dial, set a higher ISO (trade off is image noise) of around 800-1600 or even 3200 if available on your camera. Set shutter speed at 200-1000 (1/200th to 1/1000th of a second) and see if it freezes your subject. An external flashlight with hi-sync mode would help in this situation if the subject is not too far away.

Mamiya RZ 67 lens is stuck on body


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.

Shutter Speed


If your shutter speeds are off you can compensate by changing the film speed setting,
quicker ( than should be ) shutter speeds require you to set the film speed to slower ASA .. KC

Bronica SQ-Ai shutter problem


There could be a number of issues with this problem. Make sure the contacts at the rear of the lens and those on the body that connect with those on the lens are clean and straight. If so, the problem may be in the shutter within the lens. There is a magnet inside the shutter that sometimes becomes contaminated and fails to hold the shutter blades open for the selected shutter speed. The face of the magnet may need to be cleaned. There are also timing switches that sometimes go bad or need adjusting. These internal problems need to be taken care of by a competent technician since the lens needs to be completely disassembled. I have also seen these shutters go bad and need to be replaced. Let's hope that's not the problem because it will be difficult to get a new shutter for the lens--but not imposible. God luck.
