    Mamiya RZ67 and Leaf Aptus 65 problem

    I bought a Leaf Aptus back in 2007/8 and have been using it just on a Mamiya 645 AFDII, I have just thought about trying to use it with my Mamiya RZ67 but am having problems.

    I connect everything up with the two cables running from the back to the body and try to shoot a frame with the body lever on the side to the middle but nothing happens, if I move it to the multi option and take a frame the body goes mental and shoots lots of frames. Nothing shows on the back of the Aptus or on the laptop if tethered, any ideas? Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

    Change the Camera settings (on the back or in Leaf Capture/ Capture One) to Mamiya RZ

    Hi Yair
    I have done that but the shutter button doesnt press down, I have just tried a film back and that works fine along with a polaroid back.

    Obvious question - which adapter you use?

    It seems that there is a problem with the sync connection from the lens to the back (thanks Lawrie). I tried another lens other than what was already on the body and it works fine, it is a strange situation as the lenses always fired the flash when I used to use the system. Out of my four lenses only 1 works with the back????????

    Why? Sorry if you didn't get a reply but my last post indicated that the adapter wasn't the issue. The adapter is a 518-02213a
