    Confused About Mamiya RZ Adpater Plates

    Hello there. I just acquired a RZ 67 Pro IID body and I have a DM33 (Leaf Aptus -II). There are 2 plates that seem like they'll work. One is $900, the other is $1400. The question is which one do I need?

    $900: Mamiya RZ Digital Back Adapter 212-107 B&H Photo Video

    $1400: Mamiya RZ PRO-IID ADAPTOR f/APTUS-II 36x48 518-04231A B&H Photo

    I would say the higher priced one includes a matched camera focusing screen for use with the Aptus-II 7 digital back. Check some other sites besides B&H to see if you can find the adapter with and without the focusing screen.

    With an adapter for a digital back in the Mamiya mount, any Mamiya mount back should work. But the RZ viewfinder will still show you a 6X7 view. Since the second link mentions 36 X 48, that implies there is a cropped focusing screen.

    Does anybody have a source for a 36x48 mask for the RZ focusing screen?

    or you can use coloured permanent marker to mark it on focusing screen and retain better ability to focus (more light would come in).
