35mmc photography Sony A7Rii Mamiya Press Sekor medium format adapted lens

That time I shot with a Mamiya Press lens strapped to a Sony A7Rii – By Martin Ellard

I started collecting parts for a summer project with my son. I’ve been wanting to build a Goodman 3D printed medium format camera for a while and finally took the plunge on ordering a Mamiya Sekor 65mm f6.3 Press lens. It’s the recommended lens for one of the kits and only costs about £50 on ebay.When it arrived I tested the leaf shutter fired and the focus ring turned but I had no way of knowing whether the shutter was actually working. BUT maybe I could somehow test the lens on my Sony A7Rii and this little side project was born.
