This sale is for a good overall condition Mamiya RZ67 AE Prism Finder, suitable for use on the original RZ67 Pro camera, and also usable with the RZ67 Pro II and Pro IID.
This AE prism has faulty metering. It can be made to work maybe 5% of the time of the A (Average area) setting but does not seem to work at all on the Auto, S (Spot) or A/S settings. The shutter speeds shown in the viewfinder but flicker around all over the place, usually accompanied by the LT indicator, so not a lot of use really – although the set shutter speed is shown. It has been tested on both a RZ67 Pro and RZ67 Pro II.
The glass has 4 grey rectangles in the corners where the silvering on the prism has deteriorated, but this is still very usable as a plain prism.The prism body has obvious but normal minor signs of use with typical minor scuffs and a few small patches of chipped paint. Offered at a very low price to clear due to the faulty metering and grey patches, but if you want a cheap prism then this will do the job.
If you use this prism on a RZ67 Pro II or Pro IID camera you do not get the half stop shutter speeds of the Pro II AE prism, but everything else is pretty much the same on both the Pro and Pro II AE prisms. Far cheaper than a Pro II AE prism in similar condition – and just as good apart from the half-stop speeds.
