The Mamiya Universal is a classic medium format rangefinder camera introduced in 1969 that takes a Polaroid back, which I used recently with a few packs of Fuji FP-100C instant colour film. It’s a great looking camera and easy to use, but quite heavy for long periods of street work, although Weegee (Arthur Fellig) managed to capture some iconic images with an equally heavy medium format camera. William Eggleston is also known to have used the Mamiya Press camera. You also attract a lot of attention (perhaps because it looks really cool!).
Anyway, here’s a small selection of my favourite photos taken with the SEKOR 100mm f/3.5 lens and scanned on the Epson Perfection V550 photo scanner.
