Easily one of my favorite medium format cameras I’ve ever owned, the Mamiya 6 deserves every bit of praise that it gets.

I spy the Hocking Hills – Great images. I’m one of those lazy guys that appreciates a built in meter and aperture priority. Nice feature set and that 75mm lens looks very versatile.

It's the last medium format I've bought and will likely ever buy (it would take a huge change in my shooting style and tolerance for bulk to buy an RZ67 or Pentax67). The Mamiya 7 for whatever reason did the unthinkable and removed the bellows, which kills one of the main draws of the system, which is portability/size.

Great review – I don’t think I’ll ever get rid of my Mamiya 7ii, seriously such an amazing camera and lens lineup 🙌🏽

Saw this video go up, immediately impulse-bought a Mamiya 6 off eBay before even watching it. I'd been eying one since forever, of course, and was debating between that and a Hasselblad 503. Realized that neither of them was gonna get any cheaper and might as well go ahead and get one. My first ever medium format camera was a Fuji GS645W, which is honestly a great camera, but I'm so stoked to get the larger negative and (beautiful!) interchangeable lenses in a rangefinder.

Joe Tobiason says:

Thanks for the video. To anyone who gets one, make sure you keep extra batteries with you. Because they die and the camera stops until you get more.

A surprise to be sure but a welcome one

I have wanted one of these since they first came out!

Mamiya 6 could be up there for perfect camera if it didn't require me to remortgage my house.

Kiddox says:

who else voted to put this up “2nite” 😆

Phil Knall says:

I miss the mamiya6's compactness and handling… Even though I know I didn't like square format at all. It's truly the most fun to use camera I ever had.

Glad I got one before you posted this as prices will now go boom 😂 but unreal video as always
