This site is the effort of many years of collecting, reading and
researching about these cameras. A great deal of time and expense
is involved in the creation and maintenance of this site, the information
and pictures it contains. The intent of this effort was to make
all of this information available for study to anyone interested.
Any images provided by third parties (there are very few) are being
used with permission. All other images have been provided by either
the author or a paid supplier. While it has always been my sincere
desire to make this information available to the general public,
there are an unfortunately large number of unscrupulous people in
the world, some of whom have stolen images and text from this site
and passed them off as their own. Worse, there are some who have
used them on auction sites, pretending that the image they stole
is their actual sale object. That is worse than copyright infringement.
That is FRAUD. And it will be prosecuted.
Again, NO IMAGES OR TEXT FROM THIS SITE ARE TO BE USED IN ANY MEDIA,
IN ANY WAY, WITHOUT MY SPECIFIC WRITTEN APPROVAL. Remuneration may
also be required. Use this information simply for your own education
and I'll be delighted! Just don't use it to create your own web
site, publish printed or video material of any kind, falsely advertise
on eBay (or any other auction site, for that matter), or use in
any other broadcast, film, digital or electronic media without my written permission,
and everything will be fine!

The original Mamiya OP Corporation had officially recognized this
web site, as have Mamiya USA, Mamiya Germany and Mamiya UK, but
the new (Sept.2006) Mamiya Digital Imaging Company has been strangely
silent. However, none of them has endorsed the accuracy of this
information, nor do I expect them to, although Mamiya OP (Japan)
did send me a history summary and CD images of most of their early
cameras. Having Mamiya refer questions regarding their 35mm history
to this site is something I mention with a great deal of pride.
Any opinions expressed here are solely those of the author, unless

for your perseverance. If you have any new, or previously undiscussed
information (and I sincerely hope some of you do), please send it
