Question about Mamiya RB67 Pro SD Medium Format Camera
I've just gotten an RB67... After reading the manual, I've loaded the film (220 in a 200 back) correctly (i've even blown the a roll to make sure it was done correctly)... However, when I cock the shutter and release it - the film will not advance. In fact, the red indicator on the exposure counter (I have a Pro-S, not SD) does not appear. Thus, the film back will not allow me to advance the film. I've removed the slide from the back (although, the shutter will release with the slide fully inserted, which isn't supposed to happen). I've tried rotating the back to vertical picture... I've tried using slower shutter speeds... nothing seems to allow me to advance the film.
Perhaps you've already solved the mystery. There are 2 parts to the back of that camera, the film back + the part that it slips onto. And they have little safety latches/pins that couple in order to advance the film & release the shutter. I'm sure those just aren't in the right place. Here in Los Angeles you could take it to any major camera store or repair shop & they've help you out.
