And I primarily agree. Although usually in the form of Rolleiflexes. But alas, I was in college and broke. About the same as a Yashica Mat G at the local pawn shop. The only important thing I would look for is the 80mm lens being a multicoated model.

It is an improved version of the Mamiya C Similar to other models in the series, it supports interchangeable finder viewing system allowing options such as a chimney style magnifier, eye level prism and the traditional waist level finder. A new feature of the C is interchangeable focusing screens.
There are six additional types of screens available. It can be changed by first removing the finder, extending the bellows and rotating the lever on the front of the screen holder. The right side of the camera no longer has the lens distance scale window.
It has moved to the left side of the body. This six sided scale is interchangeable and can be switched to a variety of focal lengths by rotation of the knob. The lens parallax selector knob has been redesigned with more focal lengths which now include the 55mm, 65mm, and mm lenses.
The film transport system is similar to the the previous C33 model, the C uses a film advance crank and supports cocking of the shutter automatically during the winding stage. Unlike the C33, the winding can be done in a single clockwise degree rotation, and cannot be turned backwards. The back cover no longer has the film loaded red window, as it fully supports both and film.
It uses a rotating pressure plate inside the back, which also switched the film type display window. The film counter is automatically adjusted for or film. The back cover can be removed and replaced with the single exposure cut film sheet back. Removing the back requires opening the cover half way and sliding the metal hinge release. There are two shutter releases , one on the lower right hand side base of the body and another plastic downward firing one at the right side of the front standard.
They can be locked by sliding a small dial to the L position by the downward release. The one on the base supports a screw in cable release.
It held a Yashicamat twin lens reflex. There were troubles with the functioning of this camera, it had been flooded, so I never used it. I bought a replacement Yashicamat, but there were changes to be made to make it work in the housing and that never happened. A TLR has a viewing lens which projects mirror reversed on a ground glass and a taking lens, which projects on film. Advantages are you have no viewfinder block out and you can screw any filter on the taking lens including a black infrared filter and you can see everything perfectly. Switch to about
