Mamiya RZ67 Chimney Finder conversion to Pro IID use
« on: June 25, 2009, 07:21:28 PM »

Hi,

I have a chimney finder for RZ67 and can't find any information on it.  I'm wondering if anyone else has this finder and if it can be converted for use on the RZ67 Pro IID.  Since it has variable diopter correction it seems very useful for my poor eyes.

Thanks

Mamiya USA no longer has the parts to convert the older finders for AE operation.  A newer model exists that will work on the RZ Pro II and probably on the RZ Pro II D.
I recently bought two of the newer finders on Ebay.
Call Mamiya USA Service Dept.  maybe they have a demo kicking around the shop.

J-Knight  - Thanks for the info!! Glad to hear there could be a version kicking around that I could use.  Sorry to bother but could I ask you to post a pic of the newer finder so I can search on E-Bay and make sure its what I need?

Thanks for the offer but I'll hold on it - Mamiya service in Japan said they can still do conversions but it takes a month or so - not sure if that means they have to fab the parts or just long lead time to get around to it....
