Zenza Bronica S2A – Early Experiences Review & Buyer’s Notes – By Mark Herse

The Bronica S2A is a hefty 6×6 focal plane medium format SLR that was produced in Tokyo from 1969-1977. It was the last fully mechanical 6×6 SLR among Bronica’s Z/D, C, and S series, and later replaced by the electronic EC model. The S2A is unique in having an ‘instant return automatic mirror’ that swings down instead of up during exposure, which allows space for wide-angle and deep-seated lenses that extend far into the camera body.
