    RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Ok, I'm going to give the RZ67 a whirl again. I'm excited!

    I just purchased the Mamiya RZ67 adapter plate (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...k_Adapter.html) off Ebay.

    Question: Do you have to have the RZ67 PROIID camera or can I get buy with the PRO II with the appropriate cables? I will be using my Leaf Aptus 22 (Mamiya mount of course).

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Hey Patrick: As I understand, the Mamiya RZ adapter plate has the electronic connections that are compatible with the RZ Pro IID for cordless synch to a MFDB. I have read in various threads that some people seem to have problems with their Aptus backs synching properly with the RZ Pro IID when used with the Mamiya adapter. Apparently Leaf is aware of this issue but as of yet has provided no solution.

    After reading these experiences, I purchased the Leaf adapter to use with my RZ Pro IID and Aptus 75s with synch cords and have no problems whatsoever. The leaf adapter has NO electronic connections to the camera. Some users of the Pro IID that have had problems with the Mamiya adapter have simply placed tape over the gold contacts to prevent connection and simply use the synch cords and report no further problems with their Aptus backs.

    I believe the Mamiya adapter will also work on the RZ Pro II but must be used with synch cords, which seems to be the way one has to synch an Aptus back with either RZ Pro II or IID. So you could save some money and just get the RZ Pro II NON-D.

    Frank Doorhof in the Netherlands, who also posts here has a fair amount of experience shooting a RZ Pro II with Aptus 22 for beauty work.

    I think you will love the RZ optics. They are astonishing in the way they render an image....wicked sharp too.

    By the way....still loving the AFD 645 150/2.8D I bought from you!!

    Best, Jeff

    Thumbs up Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    WOW! Many thanks for answering a question that seemed to baffle the tech at Mamiya and the sales guys at B&H, as well as most others i have spoken with.

    I also have a RZ ProII (non-D) set-up, and would like to pick-up a back to use on it.

    Now another question - Is the Mamiya Adapter Plate usable with Hasselblad "V" or "H" style mounts. Just wondering so if i need to rent a back for a bit.

    Again when i asked this of the Mamiya tech - he said "NO, its a Mamiya mount. What is this V thing?"

    Thanks again.

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    We make RZ adapters that can be used on Pro/ ProII and ProIId models in 3 different mounts:
    Phase One/ Mamiya 645AFD
    Hasselblad H (works also with Phase One P/ P+ backs in H mount)
    Hasselblad V

    Each one can be ordered for:
    22/ 33 MP backs (48X36mm) e.g. Aptus 22, 54S, 75, 75S, Aptus-II 5, 7, Mamiya, Mamiya DM22, 33
    28/ 40 MP backs (44X33mm) e.g. Aptus 65, 65S, Aptus-II 6, 8, Mamiya DM28, 40
    56MP (56X36mm) e.g Aptus-II 10, Mamiya DM56

    The kit includes:
    Adapter plate (rotating)
    Lens-to-back sync cord
    Focusing screen with marks
    Camera control cable (for shooting from the computer if you have a motor-drive on your RZ)

    These adapters can be ordered through any Leaf dealer

    See attached installation guide

    Hope this helps

    RZ67 PRO II (Non-digital) question

    This by far the most informative website I have come across regarding digital backs for medium format!! Thanks to all above who have provided such a wealth of great information and direction.

    I am thinking about making the investment to upgrade my RZ67 PRO II to digital, and want to make sure I am looking into the correct components - back, adapter, etc.

    I currently have three lenses:
    • 65mm
    • 110mm
    • 180mm Soft (VSF)
    Can anyone recommend what they believe is the most compatible back for the RZ67 PRO II? Thanks very much for any information provided!

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    W/ the Pro II you will need an adapter plate with a wake up cable. For the 'D' you just need the HX701 plate and a back that is compatible.

    With Leaf backs there is no need for a wake up cable and the Leaf plate works also on the "D" (with a sync cable)

    I have a Phase One made Mamiya RZ to Hasselblad V adapter that I used with a CFV digital back ... but it will work with any V mount digital magazine or film back.

    The film gate opening is a full frame square. It is marked for Light Phase and has electrical contacts ... so it's probably for older Phase One backs ... but those are meaningless since I know it works with a V back by using the sync cord from the lens to the back. It also has an electrical contact that plugs into the RZ release port on the right side of the camera. The whole thing is built like a tank as one would expect from Phase One.

    BTW, I sold the CFV back ... so this is for sale ... $385. I have almost everything made for the RZ also for sale.

    -Marc

    P.S., if you use a sunc cord from lens to back, get the gold tipped ones from Paramount Cords ... they pretty much eliminate miss-fires

    Without a single doubt in my mind it is the Leaf Aptus 75, 75s or 75s-II (or whatever they call the latest one ...Yaya will correct me I'm sure )

    I had that combo (Aptus 75s, which I sold to a forum member that I believe still uses it). It was just the right pixel Pitch for those lenses IMHO. If I didn't need AF for my work, I'd still be shooting with it.

    I agree, going by the number of adapters we've sold over the years I would dare guessing that the Aptus 22MP & 33MP backs are probably the most popular DBs for the RZ

    Yair

    PS Marc the new one is called Aptus-II 7 :-)

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Was surfing around and just saw this question and thought I would chime in to answer some questions that were raised. For reference sake, I work within a photographic rental house that rents this gear and have experience shooting with this setup many times.

    The adapter plate goes from Mamiya's back mount to a V mount system. Both the V and H are different. V is an older style of mount, this is the same locking connectors that were used of old Hassy's (503's 555's and such). H is the new system (H1's - H4's). There really are a ton of different adapter plates out there depending on what system you need to use it on.

    For actually getting the back to accurately sync on the Pro II (not the D), you need to connect the electronic mamiya trigger to the front of the RZ and then there is another connector, a PC to PC cable that goes from the lens to the adapter plate, not the digital back. Typically no cables need to actually hook up to the back. Yes its a mess of cables but hey, you are rigging up a awesome camera to work with a new awesome back so whatever. Also set the camera to multiple exposure mode. You dont want to be messing up the new adapter plate you got!
    You will also get some sort of mask for helping you frame stuff up because there is a crop factor since most of these backs are really 645.
    Now shoot away!

    The whole system is a bit bulky but I love it. In my opinion I get way better results shooting with this setup then a new H2 with a 45+. Back is no different, just the lenses.

    Hope this helps some and if you have any questions or wish to see a picture of the setup let me know and I can take a quick photo of the setup while at work.
    Oh second note, if renting the back make sure to mention you want the V mount. Also typically the H mounts are the most rented, the only people I know that even rent the V mounts are people like us using these types of cameras.

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Does that mean that the RZ will shoot in 645 format instead of 67 format? In doing so, that means the 67 look is lost, right?

    I'm guessing that your experience is with Phase One backs. With Leaf backs on the non-D RZ (and also on the D) there are less cables involved and the back can be in 4 different mounts: M, H, V or Hy6/ AFi

    Only 1 cable is required from lens to back and all 4 adapters let you rotate the back on the back of the camera

    We also provide a Mamiya-supplied focusing screen that is marked for horizontal and vertical according to the sensor size

    Well, considering all MFDB sensors are smaller than 645, then yes, the RZ shoots "in 645 format".

    But the look for the RZ is allegedly different. I haven't been able to confirm this yet.

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    I was wondering about that, cos it would really defeat the purpose of shooting with an RZ67 and finding the pics looking like it came out of a 645 (not that the 645 is bad, I just prefer the look out of the 67s)

    I can confirm this (not that it needs confirmation : -). A Leaf back on a RZ is a marriage made in heaven. Pretty no-brainer set-up.

    I used a Aptus 75s back on a non-D RZ Pro-II for some time and it was fool proof ... shooting tethered or non-tethered. At the time, Leaf was the only Dalsa sensor digital backs from the Big Three makers ... and that, combined with the character of the RZ lenses, produced fantastic images. Not sure how a 60 or 80 meg back would do on an RZ in terms of optics, but the 33 meg Aptus was the perfect pixel pitch for the RZ camera/lens system IMHO.

    Oh second note, if renting the back make sure to mention you want the V mount. Also typically the H mounts are the most rented, the only people I know that even rent the V mounts are people like us using these types of cameras.

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you very much sharing such important information!!! I think this is a very good question with lots of good replies, altough, for me sometimes a little bit confused, because dont know wich way/direction should i take...

    I would really apreciate that someone could advice me considering tha i have one Mamiya RZ67 Pro II (non D) system, and that i'm seriously interested in geting one digital back and all necessary cables and the correct adapter...

    Question is ... wich adapter and wich back? this question seems a little bit silly i admit, but i'm newbie in these "digital" subjects...

    I know that the backs differs in sensor size and Mpixels ... i also know that i can use any Phase One "P" adapter... but when i'm surfing i see ads of P30, P45+, P65, and so on, sometimes to contax mount, sometimes to "H" (i think the H is to hasselblad) or most of the times to 645 AF Mount (wich i think is, correct me if not, for any mamiya system, right? is that a "V" mount back? am i correct?!

    I dont know if i can go to a HX705 adapter (wich i think it is only full compatible with the RZ67 pro IID system...).

    I notice from what i've read here (from BENDTS member), that there's a Phase One Mamiya RZ67 Adapter for H/P Backs w/Hasselblad V Fitting...

    Phase One Mamiya RZ67 Adapter for H/P Backs w/Hasselblad V Fitting Digital Backs 70964 - Vistek Canada Product Detail

    Does this means that it will fit any back and that i can use with my rz67 pro ii system?

    I live in Portugal and it's quite dificult for me to have a representation of backs and adapter brands... Please help me to understand wich adapter, cables and kind of backs do i have to look for... and where i can get it...

    Thanks in advance to all

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Hi SergeiR,

    Thanks for the reply... i'm figuring more with time... but i still have some doubts... sorry

    So i can buy the phase one adapter with the "V" mount so i can use with the RZ67 pro ii system,

    But what kind of back do i need? with a hasselblad mount, right? i mean, there'as lot of Phase one backs, but i dont know beside the mpixels, wich one has the correct mount to the rz67 pro ii (non D) system.

    I see some secondhand digital back's available with these descriptions, like:

    Phase One P30 H101
    Phase One H101 digital back hasselblad H fit (but this should be "V" mount?)
    Phase One P45 H101
    PhaseOne P30 Digital Camera Back 32MP - for Phase one 1 Mamiya AFD
    Phase One Digital Back P21 H101
    Phase One P 45+ H 101 Digital Back

    and so on...

    Can you please help me

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Phase has made backs with four mounts: Phase/Mamiya, Hasselblad H, Hasselblad V, and Contax. For examples of the various backs for sale (used), see CI Certified Pre-Owned - Capture Integration - Medium Format Digital Back Sales & Rental and Other Professional Photographic Equipment :: Capture Integration – Medium Format Digital Back Sales & Rental and Other Professional Photographic Equipm

    A V adapter allows you to mount a Hasselblad V mount back, but none of the others.

    If you contact a good dealer (two are present on this forum including ours: Digital Transitions) then you won't have to hassle through figuring out the mounts/compatibilities/support of various backs. The price is often very competitive to a support-less user-to-user sale.

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Thanks Stephen & Doug!!!

    I starting to have my ideas more clear... i heard that it would be better for me to have a mamiya AFD mount, once it's easier and no need of extra cables.. on the other hand, i think that it would force me to change my rz67 pro ii to a rz67 pro iiD (the digital one), am i correct?

    All the best for you all!

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    Sort of. Again the picture is complicated and a good dealer will save a lot of hassle on your end.

    An M mount Phase One P20/21/25/30/45 or P20+/21+/25+/30+/45+ must have an RZ Pro IID in order to fire without separate wakeup.

    An M mount P40+ or P65+ or any Leaf Aptus back could be used on an RZ Pro II non D with an M mount adapter; however you'll need the right one as the normal one does not mount physically without modification at a Mamiya service center.

    Re: RZ67 Adapter Plate Question

    For the PROII (non D) if you decide to go for an M mount (M for Mamiya 645 AFD) you have two basic options:

    Mamiya HX705 adapter: can be used with ANY Leaf back in M mount (Aptus and Credo) and also with Phase One P40+, P65+ and IQ. This adapter requires 1 lens-to-back sync cable

    Leaf adapter: works with ANY Leaf Aptus M back without any modification. It comes with all the cables and marked focusing screen

    Both adapters allow you to rotate the back

    We also make RZ adapters for V, H and AFi/ Hy6 backs

    Martim or Carlos at Ibermagem can help you with further local advice

    Wrong.
    You can use a P40+ with a HX701, i did, with no problem...
    I don't get the point with that HX705, the 701 make the moove.

    Welcome on board!
    My advice to you as a newbie would be to look at the dates of posts you reply to...
