Mamiya C220 Professional TLR Medium Format Film Camera In the tutorial video linked below, I do a complete walkthrough and show you everything about the Mamiya C220 Professional Twin Lens Reflex (TLR) medium format film photography camera.
The Mamiya C220 Professional is a fully manual medium format camera with interchangeable lenses. Mamiya offered the C220 from 1968 through 1982. The Mamiya C series of twin lens reflex (TLR) cameras were unique in that they offered interchangeable lenses.
Currently, I have just the standard 80mm lens. This is a square format film camera, and produces a 6×6 (2 1/4″) square negative. The Mamiya C series cameras were very popular with wedding and event photographers in the 1950’s through the 1980’s. Mamiya was very popular with portrait and wedding photographers, They offered a large line of cameras designed for the professional including the RB67, RZ67, M645, C22, C33, C220, C330.
In 2014 ownership of Mamiya Camera was transferred to Phase One. They still make medium format digital cameras, Phase One also offers Capture One, my preferred digital RAW image developer.
I have featured the C220 in numerous videos:
