Hello, lately my mamiya rz pro II refuses to work as usual not releasing the shutter, although it should (batteries are new, the dark slide is drawn, the film lever is wound up). it happened before, but i could solve it while turning the back one or two times. now this doesn't work anymore - and i am desperate! is it something with the contacts? that the camera electronic doesn't get it that the dark slide is drawn already? does it need professional help or can i do something? best regards, claudia from germany

Change the battery! This happened to mine too, I was terrified... never knew it took a battery until then, as I don't have a viewfinder with an inbuilt lightmeter. Unfortunately the rz needs it just to run, this is where the rb actually wins. The battery is underneath, you should be able to get a new one from a camera shop.
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.
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.
